PJ'S SONG MAKES MOVIE DEBUT IN AWARD-WINNING 'WEST END!'


westend2
PJ's original song, “Dreams Are Meant For Two,” with music written by her late father, Jazz pianist Thomas E. Parker, makes its motion picture debut in Joe Basile’s “West End." The movie won "People's Choice" and "Best Homegrown Feature" awards at the 2013 Garden State Film Festival in Asbury Park and was the "Soho's Pick" award winner at the 2013 Soho International Film Festival in New York City.

The song, which is also performed by Parker, appears during an opening scene with Eric Roberts (Runaway Train) and Isabella Hofmann (Grey’s Anatomy), who play married couple Victor and Mary Trevi.

Parker, a Somerset County, New Jersey resident, wrote the “Dreams Are Meant For Two” lyrics to her father’s 1940’s music. The song is also the title track in Parker’s third album. Besides “Dreams Are Meant For Two,” Parker has released two other albums, “Intimate” and “It’s Christmas.” Her music has also been heard in prime time television’s “Parenthood,” “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “The Vampire Diaries.”

‘West End’ was written, produced and directed by Red Bank, NJ native Joe Basile, a veteran actor who has appeared in more than 25 television programs and 15 movies.

The movie follows Vic Trevi, played by Neal Bledsoe (Ugly Betty), who has returned to the Jersey Shore following the mob-ordered murder of his gangster father, Victor (Eric Roberts). The younger Trevi seeks to find out who killed his father, while hiding his identity as an undercover FBI agent, from his mobster family.

Also starring in the film are Melissa Archer (One Life To Live); Paul Calderon (Pulp Fiction); Wayne Duvall (Lincoln); Anthony Mangano (Point Break); Lou Martini (The Sopranos); Joe Nieves (How I Met Your Mother) and Peter Onorati (Goodfellas).

PEOPLE ARE TALKING

"PJ Parker has performed for two years at the FoodBank of Monmouth & Ocean Counties' annual Culinary Classic fundraiser. This high visability event attracts between 700 to 900 guests each year and PJ's delightful voice provided the perfect atmosphere for our guests. Her selections include wonderful classics as well as newer melodies that have received creative and smooth arrangements." -- Ellen Komment, The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties

When PJ Parker sings...people listen! This dynamic songstress and her equally talent trio of professional musicians (including pianist Vinnie Ruggieri) wowed the crowd at our "Taste of Somerset" culinary fundraiser for The PeopleCare Center -- people are still talking about their performance. There was magic in the air with a delightful array of tunes performed from the Great American Songbook. From jazz to classic contemporary songs, our guests went home full in the belly, as well as delighted in their hearts! We look forward to the return engagement of PJ Parker and company. --

No words can describe the joy PJ brought to my family during the Christmas Season of 2011. Both my husband and father-in-law were deathly ill. After a long struggle in the hospital my father-in-law was sent home to pass away and my family was devastated. In an attempt to lift our spirits, we posted an ad seeking a musician willing to come to our home and perform my father-in-law's favorite music from Les Miserable. We never dreamed that an accomplished artist such such as PJ would have a heart big enough to accept this offer. From the moment PJ and I spoke over the phone, it was clear PJ loves what she does. PJ is the ultimate performer! She filled our hearts and the room with the light of her music. She, and her accompanist ,Vinnie, would be comfortable anywhere from a dark and sultry jazz club to a Broadway stage, and everywhere in between, including my father-in-law's living room!

We were absolutely wowed by PJ's performance and her effortless talent. To this very day, our family credits PJ's beautiful music with curing my husband and father-in-law who both made miraculous recoveries. PJ is simply exquisite! --
