"Judge Parker" . . . a name drawn from the famous nineteenth century Arkansas Territory Hanging Judge, "Issac C. Parker". As it was in the 1800's, this most righteous Southern rock Band is making the name Judge Parker a household name once again! While being the brainchild of combined efforts and talents in 1988, brothers Larry and Arthur Pearson have started something that cannot be stopped! Judge Parker stays busy headlining an average of two hundred plus shows and concerts per year in twenty-two states, so far!
Judge Parker has shared the stage with dynamic acts such as Black Oak Arkansas, 38 Special, Molly Hatchet, Johnny Van Zant, Foghat , Marshall Tucker, Head East, Pat Travers, Confederate Railroad, Chris Ledeoux, William Lee Golden & the Goldens, and David Allan Cole, just to name a few!
