With a storied musical history—his mentor was none other than the Godfather of Soul himself, James Brown—this accomplished saxophonist is among the funk world’s most beloved icons. During his more than three-decade career, Maceo Parker has spread his signature sound across genre lines to work with diverse bands such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Ani DiFranco. His most recent album, last year’s Soul Classics, was recorded live with a 15-member orchestra from Cologne, Germany. Opening for Parker is the Fort Collins-based jam band Euforquestra. Fri 9 p.m.
