“Maceo Parker is a funk titan... regarded as simply one of the all-time great saxophonists.” San Jose Mercury News

“The three-generation gospel collective’s high-energy performances are the living embodiment of the indelible connection between the black church and its rock and soul offspring.” Austin Chronicle

Legendary saxophonist Maceo Parker embodies the soul of funk music. A key member in shaping the scene, he played alongside icons like James Brown, George Clinton and Prince; it’s almost impossible to separate which came first, Maceo Parker or the funk. Parker’s magnetism as a performer and fresh, timeless sound has attracted collaborators across the spectrum, from Ray Charles to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Opening for Parker are The Jones Family Singers, a family of Texas-based gospel powerhouses who infuse joyful and reverent songs with vintage soul, funk and R&B.
