Panther City Rounders - Gary & Mark

Gary (on the left) and Mark (on the right)
(which is not necessarily supposed to imply anything about politics)

Mark and Gary have been best friends since they met about 30 years ago at Paschal High School (Go Panthers!) in Fort Worth, Texas. They were both in the marching band and they also worked together as janitors during high school. After graduating from college and law school, they became partners for a few years in their law firm which was called Parish & Batchelder, Attorneys at Law. Currently, they are each independent practicing lawyers whose friendship and mutual appreciation of music bring them together as:
Panther City Rounders.

Perry Harper

Perry Harper
(A serious bass player!)

The Panther City Rounders now welcome their newest member of the band, Perry Harper on bass! Perry is a materials analyst at Bell Helicopter. Perry is also an expert carpenter. Originally from Tennessee, Perry has played upright bass with the Nashville Symphony and briefly played bass guitar on tour with the Charlie Daniels Band - as a substitute for the regular bass player who had a terrible slamming-his-hand-in-a-car-door accident. After retiring from music for several years, Perry is getting back into the swing of things with his new friends:
Panther City Rounders

Although she chooses to appear with Panther City Rounders as a guest musician rather than as a regular member of the band, when Janet Parish accompanies us, she always makes a valuable contribution with her keyboard improvisation, rhythm guitar, or her beautiful harmonic vocals. Janet is a very talented songwriter who often performs her worship music in other settings. Janet takes good care of her family and is also an efficient office worker, a licensed cosmotologist, and an experienced paralegal.
