Featured at 10:00pm: Alex The Red Parez and The Hell Rojos Featuring Terry Boes and Derek Evry!
"Alex The Red Parez aka El Rojo has been bringing acoustic rock (Americana, Classic Rock, Pop Rock and Old Time Country Western) to the Washington DC Metro Area since 2006. Whether performing original music or classic material, Alex’s voice is “reminiscent of Johnny Cash, though often sung with Jello Biafra’s inflection” (Matthew Stabley, NBCWashington.com) and “sounds like Nick Cave reinterpreting the early songbook of Bill Callahan” (The Big Easy - MetroMusicScence.com). “El Rojo” to his friends, Parez takes inspiration from epic troubadours and fantastic bands Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Johnny Cash, the Eagles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Rolling Stones, The Doors among many others as well as such current and former local artists John Bustine, Brandon Butler, Michael Maloney, Derek Evry, and Jason Mendelson.
In duo/ trio/quartet mode, Alex is flanked by several accomplished musicians including harmonica sideman Terry Boes, bassists Derek Evry, Miles Townes, or Jason Mendelson, and veteran drummer Dan Perriello who performs with several other local bands or the fantastic drummer, Joe Mori or Chris Martin. Alex has also performed with many other local musicians for various tribute shows."
