Generally every other Monday, Acoustic Open Madness Monday, hosted by Brian Parton. Full back line is provided, including full drum kit, bass amp, guitar amp, and upright grand piano. All styles and levels welcome. About Brian: He’s the Rebel Troubadour of fast whiskey and hard women. His songs reflect his passion for a life of exotic danger and bad love gone beguiling, with a twist of ironical jubilation.
From a destination he prefers to identify simply as “unknown,” on a journey to “no forwarding address,” he makes you sit back, inhale the moment and leave destiny to its own whim.
Brian Parton is part James Dean, part Woody Guthrie, a touch of Kurt Cobain and a dash of Billy the Kid.
As he scowls-out his lyrics you feel the tortured yet amused soul of the Dark Ruler of Rockabilly rubbing against untouched regions of your soul’s innards as he spins love ballads like never expressed before.
He is danger’s lonely friend. Capable of telling stories of love that leave you feeling more like you snorted the lyrics off the bar instead of standard audible ingestion.
Best taken with a shot of whiskey or a gulp of ‘shine, Parton’s music says those things you have felt but lacked the ability to express. Go ahead, use his lyrics as your own, if you dare to drive into the night on life’s back road. Just know you must now share the load of the Balladeer of Bad.
