Funnily sufficient, the band Parkin Lot was truly established in a car parking zone – the car parking zone of the Telluride Bluegrass Competition, to be actual. It was based in 2007 by Mike “Banker” Financial institution and Al Hagar, who had already identified one another for years at that time. Banker had been on the lookout for a automobile to begin presenting his music, as he’s a really prolific songwriter, writing anyplace from one to 2 songs every week. By means of its founding, Parkin Lot turned that automobile.

Banker describes the band as an acoustically based mostly band that may go psychedelic and digital in its presentation as properly. He cites Bob Dylan and The Grateful Lifeless as amongst their influences, as “Banker” specifically likes writing songs with a narrative and songs about individuals. If he have been to explain the kinds of music that the band performs, he would describe it as Americana folk-rock.

Banker estimates he has written about 400-500 songs all through the course of his life. He wrote his first music in 1985 with a guitar on a bench in Alaska and has liked the craft of songwriting ever since. He says that the Boulder musicians are extremely shut as individuals irrespective of how huge or small they’re, and he loves having the ability to be a part of such a giant group of musicians.

Banker says he loves having the ability to inform tales on stage. He hopes that audiences will take away highly effective tales of humanity from their exhibits and that they will come to the exhibits and disappear from actuality for a bit. He says when you really feel just a little bit freer by the point you stroll out of the present, he’s completed his job.
