Welcome

Alex The Red Parez aka El Rojo has been bringing acoustic rock and old-time country 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 Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and local balladeer John Bustine amongst various other artists. In trio mode, Alex is flanked by accomplished harmonica sideman Terry Boes and prolific bassist Derek Evry who is also a fantastic songwriter, singer, guitarist and band leader. Alex has also performed with several other local musicians for various tribute shows.

Featured at 10:00pm: Caitlin Schneiderman!

www.caitlinschneiderman.com

"Born and raised in the small town of Clifton, Virginia, Caitlin has been writing and recording original music since she was fourteen. Her sweet voice and rustic guitar meld into one instrument when she performs, known to quiet even the rowdiest of bars - when Caitlin plays, people listen.

Together, she and her six-string have serenaded New York City’s streets, captivated California’s cliff sides and charmed the Great Smoky Mountains. Music has forever been an essential part of Caitlin’s life. Listen and you will hear the detail and devotion in each of her chords, each word, each note. You will hear music that honors tradition, but defies predictability.

Caitlin is currently recording music for an upcoming album and teaching guitar and songwriting lessons in the Northern Virginia area."
