The Simple Parade:
Hailing from Denver, CO, The Simple Parade is an alternative folk group led by Justin and Kayla Hooper. The duo is joined by a group of incredibly talented and amazingly humble musicians who are dedicated to a simple mission; create authentic, honest, storytelling songs that challenge the mind and encourage the soul. In fact, the band name is in itself a challenge. It is easy to get caught in the mindset of viewing life as a rigid assembly line or an immovable traffic jam, but the hope is to instead see it as a joyful parade where everyone has their own unique part to play. The simplicity is that our parade should primarily be about the relationships we make along the way, and although the march is rarely easy, it never has to be made alone. Have you joined The Simple Parade?
