"Parish Hall" was a power trio from the California Bay Area.
The band consisted of "Gary Wagner" (guitar, piano, vocals), "John Haden" (bass guitar), and "Steve Adams" (drums).
Specializing in a Hard Rock sound, their album "Parish Hall" (Fantasy Records 8398, 1970) was originally released near the end of 1970 on a small Californian record label "Fantasy Records".


All songs on "Parish Hall" album are originals written by "Gary Wagner" and hold up well when compared to other Hard Rock acts.

"Fantastic power trio Hard-Rock that just about everyone likes.
This is no-nonsense stuff, brief songs, killer riffs, strong but unpretentious singing, sparse arrangements.
There's a mild bit of bluesiness to it, but the songs are fast and the album isn't full of long guitar solos. There's a terrific ballad too. A really good one".
(Aaron Milenski)

Why do you put quotes around names? It makes it look like the names of the players aren't their real ones.
