Martin Parker Benefit

Martin Parker Benefit Concert by the Rocky Hock Opry and the Out N The Cold Band Join us on October 24th at the Swain Auditorium in Edenton NC at 7 PM for a Musical Tribute to Martin Parker, Edenton resident and former drummer for numerous Nashville Country Music stars such as Ricky Skaggs, Vince Gill, Patty Loveless, and several others. Martin passed away in mid-September after suffering a massive stroke and being in Pitt Hospital for over a month. All proceeds for this concert will go to one of Martin’s passions, “MUSIC IN THE SCHOOLS”, a fund that has been set up by his family that will benefit the music programs in the Edenton-Chowan Schools. This is part of the Edenton Chowan Education Foundation. The show will feature the cast of the Rocky Hock Opry, and the Out N The Cold Band, of which Martin was a longtime member. Martin had also performed with the Rocky Hock Opry several times as well. The show will consist of all types of music, from classic country to county rock to quartet style country. There will also be some side splitting comedy acts by Flatbilly Bob and Minnie Pearl, as well as the usual antics by all musicians! Martin’s son, Quinton, an accomplished Nashville musician in his own right, is schedule to perform as well. Tickets are only $ 10.00 and can be purchased at the locations on the poster, or call 252-340-3438 for more information.
