Meet a Westword Music Showcase Band: The Parlor Pickers

Seventy of Denver's best hometown bands will play the Westword Music Showcase along with national acts Shakey Graves, the Revivalists, Cut Copy, Bob Moses, COIN and A R I Z O N A, on Saturday, June 24. We reached out to the local outfits to learn more about their music and their relationship to Denver.

Here's what the Parlor Pickers had to say:

Westword: How would you describe your sound?

The Parlor Pickers: We are a solid blend of country, bluegrass, and rock and roll. We struggle to find a genre, so we call our music roadhouse music.

How has Denver influenced your sound?

One word: Breweries!

What could Denver do to better support musicians?

Fix traffic issues on I-25 so we aren't late for gigs!!

Will you stay in Denver or will you leave? Why?

Why would we ever want to leave Denver?
