Newnan’s Deantoni Parks performing today in Atlanta

by Wes Mayer

Musician and Newnan native Deantoni Parks will be playing with his new band, Bosnian Rainbows, at Terminal West music venue in Atlanta today.

This show will begin Bosnian Rainbows’s Eastern U.S. tour, which will last until July 24. The band will be playing at multiple venues on their way up north and will hit a number of states before ending in Chicago. A week later, the band will be traveling overseas to play at numerous music festivals across Europe.

“We don’t really believe in taking breaks,” Parks said. “We have only been together for eight months, and we are closing in on 100 shows.”

Bosnian Rainbows was formed in 2012 by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, co-founder of The Mars Volta, and he now takes position as Bosnian Rainbows’s lead guitarist. Parks, who was also the drummer in The Mars Volta, adds his drumming skills, and the two other band members are vocalist Teri Gender Bender and Nicci Kasper on the keyboard.

Tonight at Terminal West, doors will open at 8 p.m., Sister Crayon will go on at 9 and Bosnian Rainbows will take the stage around 10 p.m.
