Maceo Parker

November 19, 2021
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents

Maceo Parker is the king of funk and one of the primary architects of modern R&B. He honed his chops playing with funk’s founding fathers, then leading his own group, deftly navigating from soul and freaky funk to the mellower side of jazz and hip-hop grooves. This "lancing, quick-phrasing alto saxophone blazer” (The New York Times) returns to our stage on the heels of a brand-new album, his first in eight years, which blends raw, old school funk with the flavors of New Orleans. Ultimately, Parker is “a consummate entertainer whose band shares his single-minded mission to get audiences on their feet and leave them moved and grooved.” (San Francisco Chronicle)
