Welcome

Alex The Red Parez aka El Rojo has been bringing acoustic rock (Americana, Classic Rock, Pop Rock and Old Time Country Western) to the Washington DC Metro Area since 2006. Whether performing original music or classic material, Alex’s voice is “reminiscent of Johnny Cash, though often sung with Jello Biafra’s inflection” (Matthew Stabley, NBCWashington.com) and “sounds like Nick Cave reinterpreting the early songbook of Bill Callahan” (The Big Easy - MetroMusicScence.com). “El Rojo” to his friends, Parez takes inspiration from epic troubadours and fantastic bands Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Johnny Cash, the Eagles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Rolling Stones, The Doors among many others as well as such current and former local artists John Bustine, Brandon Butler, Michael Maloney, Derek Evry, and Jason Mendelson. 

In duo/ trio/quartet mode, Alex is flanked by several accomplished musicians including harmonica sideman Terry Boes, prolific bassists Jason Mendelson (www.metrosongs.org) of MetroSongs notoriety or Derek Evry (www.derekevry.com), also a fantastic songwriter, singer, guitarist and band leader, and veteran drummer Dan Perriello who performs with several other local bands. Alex has also performed with several other local musicians for various tribute shows.

Featured at 10:00pm: Alley Bei!

https://www.alleybei.com

"Alley Bei is a storm of whimsical energy- Each song has a distinct sound that adventurously fuses genres and themes. Her style is thoughtful, vibrant and varied, creating a space for many moods and tastes to meet. She speaks Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, and English fluently, and injects all three languages and cultural influences into her work.

December 2020 saw the release of her artful debut album, "All the Things". The album, produced with Thomas Francis O'Brien V and Chris "V" Viera, received congratulations and praise from industry Giants- an encouraging sign of feedback for a rookie artist stepping into the spotlight.

Alley has performed her original songs in the USA from Atlanta to San Francisco, and internationally as far as Beijing, China. 2021 will see a mix of full band and acoustic shows across southern and middle America.

Other Projects: Alley is an avid anime and cartoon fan. Her web comic "A Bei in the Life" personifies her album songs as characters in an exaggerated slice-of-life and workplace comedy.

She is also voicing/singing for a grassroots animated series.

Also an eccentric athlete, Alley occasionally performs aerial hoop (lyra) for circus sideshow."
