Word whizzes will agree that "part and parcel" is an idiom describing a component or integral part of something.
But those familiar with Denver's booming music scene know the band with the name, Part & Parcel, is a progressive bluegrass project that will get your toes tapping and your head bobbing.
The five-member band is on its Happy Hour Tour and will perform a show from 8 p.m. to midnight Friday, April 19, at Copeka Coffee, 1012 N. Fifth St.
Matt Flaherty (guitar/vocals), Jacob Moss (guitar/vocals), Devon "Tree" Lindsay (drums), Evan Harris (bass guitar) and Mark Pietrovito (mandolin/vocals) are longtime friends who in 2016 "decided to take their shared love of string music and cultivate it into a progressive, energy-fueled passion project," according to partandparcelband.com.
Elements of funk, punk, folk, rock and bluegrass blend into a sound they describe as "genre-fluid."
"Fans will find themselves tapping their toes to a fiddle tune one minute, then head banging to a righteous rock song the next. The dance floors at Part & Parcel shows are consistently packed, feet always stomping and booties shaking," the band's website says.
Admission is $5 at the door. Go to facebook.com/copekacoffee for information.
