Alex The Red Parez aka El Rojo / Bio

Alex "The Red" Parez and the Hell Rojos have been bringing acoustic rock and old-time country to Washington, D.C. audiences since 2010. 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 – MetroMusicScene.com). "El Rojo" to his friends, Parez takes inspiration from epic troubadours Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and local balladeer John Bustine. In trio mode, Alex is flanked by accomplished harmonica sideman Terry Boes and prolific bassist Jason Mendelson of MetroSongs notoriety.
