Greg Lewis plays guitar and mandolin and he sings every song from the 60s and 70s too.   He has been playing ever since he saw the Beatles on Ed Sullivan.  He is a big fan of all the great 60s and 70s tunes and loves Dylan, Neil Young, the Moody Blues, the Beatles, and the Monkees.   Alan and Greg met in the late 70s in L.A. and have played these oldies together so much that they finally decided to gig with these songs.  Greg and Alan make music magic together since the both come from the same music quilt.  Their guitar strings intertwine with each other and every in the audience feels their good vibrations!!!

Music by LA Parks and Wrecks

About a year ago I did the signs for a church that had had a fire. Speaking with the Pastor, the conversation drifted to music, and I explained that I had a record company, Pig Heaven Records and recorded some of the top urban blues players in the Bay area. I played my record and the pastor loved it. He asked me to play for the rededication of the church.

That's where I met Brother Phil Soul. Phil has been playing organ in church since he was 7 years old, he is a unique talent possible one of the best Gospel players around. To be quite honest it was a gift that brought us together, being a Jewish guy from New York playing contemporary gospel was really a challenge and helped put the musical pieces of the puzzle together.

After all, lots of the great players I idolized got their chops playing in church. So I offer to you the soulful & sanctified, that deep heart rhythm blues. LA Parks & Wreaks.

With a sound that combines acoustic folk-rock songwriting of the early 70's with indie and alternative sounds and textures, "singer-songwriter" would only address Allen Morris on the surface. With influences are as diverse as Neil Young to The Cure, Allen Morris runs a gamut of songwriting styles throughout his energetic and engaging performances that are captured well in his two releases thus far: "Alpha Particles" (2016), and this year's "Fly By Wire" (2017). Allen is currently touring in support of his latest release.
