Parachute Musical Calls It Quits, Will Play Last Show March 30 at The 5 Spot

Well, I can't say that primary color-sporting piano-pop locals Parachute Musical have graced this ol' blog's virtual pages too many times in recent months and years. In fact, last we heard from them was their album release back in September. But it looks as though the quartet is making some news today, if only by way of an obituary.

According to a status update via their Facebook page, Parachute Musical has decided to call it quits. The split appears to have been amicable — the term "bro-noodling" was used — and PM is now discounting all their merchandise. Here's an excerpt from the band's farewell notice:

The past 7+ years have been some of the greatest moments of our lives, but at the same time, we all feel that this chapter has come to a close. We're ready to try new things, go new places, see where life takes us.

We just want to thank all of you for your love, support and generosity throughout the band's existence. PM would not have made its small yet significant mark on this planet had it not been for you. It certainly made a huge mark on our lives and we'll never forget it, or you.

To those who participated in our Kickstarter project, we owe you special thanks. You gave us the means to make our dream album, which is stamped in time. Listen to it with pride as it's yours as it is ours.

We also want to specifically thank our manager, Nick Hardy, who has pretty much been our 5th member since we relocated to Nashville in 2007. He worked as hard as all of us and is a behind the scenes hero.

Parachute Musical also mentions that they'll be playing their last show on March 30 at The 5 Spot, along with The Winter Sounds and Baby Baby. I don't know anything about Baby Baby, but I'm hoping their entire set consists of one long, drawn-out cover of Amy Grant's "Baby, Baby." Doesn't seem likely.

Anyhow, farewell, Parachute Musical. We hardly knew ye. True, we may not have done a whole lot to correct that on our end, but nobody likes to see a dream die. Good luck in your future endeavors.
