Maceo Parker

Maceo Parker

Maceo Parker spent the first half of his career in the service of funk’s founding fathers. In his second act as a bandleader, the unrelentingly soulful saxophonist/vocalist has ascended into the funk firmament in his own right, leading a righetously grooving outfit that plays with ecstatic precision and ferocious drive. The altoist made his mark as an essential voice in the powerhouse horns backing James Brown, contributing classic funk solos on some of the Godfather’s iconic hits. He went on to join George Clinton’s moveable funk feast in Parliament/Funkadelic during the ensemble’s most creative era. Since the early 1990s, Parker has been spreading gospel of groove, a dedicated entertainer who believes in funk’s power to transform and heal. He brings his super-powered band to Miner Auditorium for an explosive four-night residency.
