Crooked Crow / Bruce Parker

Crooked Crow formed in 2001, upon the ashes of their previous incarnation, Acoustic Reign. Building themselves a strong following in the Washington DC area as a… band with a large repertoire of cover hits—plus a strong pool of original songs—Crooked Crow became a familiar name around town for parties and a rockin’ good time. During the cover years, the band continued writing original songs and releasing CDs. In 2007, Crooked Crow began to focus primarily on playing their own music at “proper” live music venues. Their original music is best described as high energy, straight-up rock and roll, featuring obvious classic and Southern rock influences coupled with modern lyric and rhythm stylings. The band’s sound has been compared to bands like R.E.M., Tonic, and Vertical Horizon. As a popular headlining act at many venues around the Washington DC metro area, Crooked Crow is now playing support and headlining at DC’s larger venues, including the State Theatre, the Fillmore, and the 9:30 Club. Building a following throughout the Northeast Corridor, the band plays often in Baltimore, Philadelphia, New Jersey, New York City and Boston, plus have headed south to Fredericksburg and Richmond, VA. Crooked Crow is also turning their attention further south, with shows in Raleigh and Asheville, NC in the works. Crooked Crow has opened for and supported many regional and national headliners, including Cowboy Mouth, Sponge, Authority Zero, and Zebrahead.
