” Brent Parlane and His Band make music for grownups; serious, funny, beautifully crafted songs, exquisitely arranged and performed. Brent is an established and artful singer-songwriter.His new band, with a bunch of new songs, takes his career to a new level.The repertoire includes some of the very best songs from Brent’s catalog.And the show also reminds audiences that Brent is an accomplished and authentic singer of standards from the folk tradition.But it’s the new songs, sly and sophisticated, that take Brent and the band into new territory.A compact but very full sound showcases songs that are the work of a mature composer.A very tight rhythm section(Rob Hornbukle Bass & David Hicks Drums) backs a classic guitar lineup, Gibson SG and Fender Stratocaster, The guitar players payers, Co Tipping and Trevor Reading, bring the full spectrum of accumulated guitar wisdom and a full aural palette to colour and complement the songs. The result is soaring, engaging music. Brent is a genuine band leader, with showmanship, stagecraft and delivery that’s descended straight from Al Bowly. And the band rocks.”
