About Us

The Charlie Parker Band was formed in 1998 by Charlie Parker after years of playing in and around the Houston area.

Charlie Parker, on guitar & lead vocals, has been playing professionally since the mid 70’s. He always strives for excellence in his work. His skill on guitar and vocals is comparable to any seasoned veteran that rocks. As founder of the "CPB" he has worked hard to become a favorite in the Texas music scene. Biker Bars and Motorcycle Rallies are his specialty. He has years of experience and it shows with every performance!!!

Charlie started playing guitar at the ripe old age of 8 years old. He grew up in Spring Texas with three older siblings, and was exposed to music at an early age. He was influenced by the jazz, blues and rock of the 60's and 70's. He has been playing the Houston,Texas club scene since High School. Together with all his friends and fellow musicians, he has helped create some of the best musical performances in town!!!

The band has built an impeccable reputation over the years and their following keeps growing. They create magical performances and many people love their cover song selections and Original music. This is one powerful Texas band!!! They have played countless bike rallies and clubs around Texas, Louisiana, Utah. The CPB has opened the show for some signed bands such as Point Blank, Blackfoot, Pat Travers and more. This is a rockin' Texas band without a doubt!!! We hope to see you soon at the next show, and we're sure you'll love the band as much as we do.
The Charlie Parker Band loves to jam and it shows at every performance.
We will always honor our brothers Lowboy and Mark in our hearts and in our music
These two men passed into Heaven while they were working members of the Charlie Parker Band
God Bless them and their Families

Independent Entertainment Professionals:
"Charlie Parker is among the greatest entertainers at any level. For many years, I have employed his talents and have never been disappointed. Charlie has always gone the extra mile to make whatever he was involved in the best it could be. It has been an honor to work with Charlie and his band members each time, and we look forward to it every year. I highly recommend Charlie Parker".

"The County Line is pleased to offer this cool video of the Charlie Parker Band performing there on 11/10/2012. Charlie and the guys are Classic Rockers to the max and they don't mind mixing things up a bit for your enjoyment. Here, they are performing Pink Floyd mixed in with some Neil Young. So now, check out this combination of Pink Floyd's "Breathe" with "Down By The River" blended in. Cool!!!" Published on Nov 12, 2012
