Hi-99 Summer Bash today at Fairbanks Park

Country group Parmalee and Clare Dunn are scheduled to appear at Fairbanks Park tonight as part of the annual Hi-99 Summer Bash. The concert is to start at 8, and admission is free. Parmalee is named for its members’ hometown in North Carolina, population 278. The show, the annual Hi-99 and Dorsett Automotive Summer Bash, includes Clare Dunn as the opener.

Admission is free.

Parmalee is a family band comprised of brothers Matt and Scott Thomas (lead vocals/guitar and drums, respectively), cousin Barry Knox (bass) and lifelong best friend Josh McSwain (guitar).

Recording on the Stoney Creek label, Parmalee charted a No. 1 single with “Carolina” culled from its debut album, “Feels Like Carolina,” which was released Dec. 10. The compilation received solid reviews from the New York Times, USA Today and Billboard, according to the band’s publicist. “Carolina” was the longest-climbing single by a duo or group in the 24-year history of the Billboard Country Airplay Chart.

Parmalee’s latest single, “Close Your Eyes,” has cracked the country music Top 30. That song can be heard at: The full album can be heard at:

The group is currently touring with platinum-selling country artist Jake Owen as the middle supporting act on select dates of the Days of Gold tour.

Paramlee made news in 2010 through a harrowing incident. In September of that year, the band was involved in an attempted robbery and shootout on its RV outside the club at which they had just played. The ordeal came on the eve of Parmalee traveling to Nashville for a showcase with Stoney Creek Records. Drummer Scott Thomas was shot three times and airlifted to a hospital in Charlotte, N.C. He was given a 5 percent chance of life by doctors, but miraculously survived after spending 35 days in the hospital, 10 of which he spent in a coma. He made a full recovery.
