JOYANN PARKER is the best Twin Cities female singer you've never heard. Imagine a sober Janis Joplin. And that's a good thing. Imagine a taller Shemekia Copeland without the my-dad-was-a-blues-star pedigree. And that's a really good thing. There's pain in Parker's heart - and in just about every song she writes and sings. And, onstage, the grimace on her face, the clenched fists and the ache in her roar let her listeners know that she knows hurt...whatever she plays, Parker owns it.  She's a powerful, animated blues-rock singer, capable guitarist and pianist, and a writer of praiseworthy originals

Events begin on Wednesday, September 18, with an optional, but highly-encouraged Fraternity Meet-and-Greet from 7-9 p.m. The actual Structured Recruitment process takes place Thursday-Saturday, September 19-21. Those participating should be available for the whole process. "Bid Day," or the day on which men may actually receive bids, or invitations to join, will be Sunday, September 22. In order to register, you will need both your MSU StarID and your TechID numbers.
