The Sun Parade comes to the High Noon Saloon

Published June 06. 2013 4:00AM

Singer-guitarists Chris Jennings and Jefferson Lewis met in an Adult Ed voodoo class in Northampton, Mass. There, utilizing their new skills as witches, they created an altar, placed upon it a nganga and, through an alchemical recipe of precise sacrifices, potions and incantations, formed an alt-folk-pop duo called The Sun Parade.

Hey, that voodoo stuff really works: the pair seems to effortlessly spin out melodic gems recalling Guster and The Jayhawks - all the while evolving with their own quantifiable signature. After adding the rhythm section of Doni McAulay (drums) and Jacob Rosazza (bass), they last year released a sparkling and consistent album called "Yossis."

See them live tonight at the High Noon Saloon in Norwich.
