North Carolina natives Parmalee will be live at Shooters on Friday night.

Parmalee says their name is derived from the small town of Parmele, NC, where they started creating music in a small barn. Parmalee consists of lead singer and guitarist Matt Thomas, bassist and vocalist Barry Knox ,Josh McSwain lead guitar, vocals, and friend, and drummer Scott Thomas.

If you think of Jason Aldean as the rockin’ side of country then think of Parmalee as the country side of rock,” Matt explains.  Country fans recently voted the band’s debut single, “Musta Had A Good Time,” #1 for 4 consecutive weeks on SiriusXM’s “The Highway,” and the song is a Top 40 hit on mainstream country radio. The fun-loving party anthem has been featured in national sporting event broadcasts from the PGA to MLB.

Parmalee has been highlighted in USA Today, AOL’s The Boot, Country Aircheck, Country Weekly and been named a “Bubbling Under Artist” by Billboard magazine. The signs are clear that after a long, tumultuous journey to Nashville, Parmalee is home at last.
