Carl Thomas
Hi! My name is Carl Thomas and I have performed and written music for over 20 years through a number of bands, duos, and as a solo artist. I am a native of the greater Huntsville area, and I absolutely love the history and personality of this city.

Over the years I have performed in just about every venue in Huntsville, so I understand the artist's point of view, while also having a firm understanding of what venues need as well. After struggling through keeping a full booking schedule myself for many years, while also finding success in Huntsville's professional world as a Realtor, an Apartment Community Manager, and owning/running multiple businesses, I saw a major potential for our live music scene here to grow. That potential drove me to work incredibly hard at creating ways to give musicians and the venues that support them a platform that would be noticed not only by the city itself, but by other music-focused cities like Nashville and Atlanta.

In 2016 I met an amazing guy that I now consider a very dear friend, Rick “Parker” Dieffenbach. After realizing the incredible web building skills Rick had, his heart for the local music scene, and his unending creativity, I knew that teaming with him would be a sure way to shine a spotlight on music in the Rockin’ City and surrounding areas. I am incredibly honored to play a small part in the amazing things to come in our live music scene!

Rick 'Parker' Dieffenbach

Hello! My name is Rick Dieffenbach ‘tho I go by Parker sometimes.

Huntsville is my adopted home. I moved here in no small part because it offered a rich mix of live music opportunities as an audience member.

I had fallen in love with music as a young boy in the 60s when the Beatles appeared. My friends and I played Beatle songs on toy guitars. 'Ringo' used a garbage can top as a drum. Yeah yeah yeah!

I’m a retired Navy Civil Engineering Officer, was married to the love of my life for 25 years. In between I owned a web development company for a number of years. Today, every day is an adventure and joy. Every day is Christmas.

Together with my friend and musician extraordinaire Carl Thomas, a love of live music and my web development background combined to create HuntsvilleMusic.com . Why? Music is the easiest and best way to enjoy a moment, a day and a lifetime. It can help you see light during dark times. Bring strength during sad times. And deliver even more joy to the best of times.

If Carl and I can help you find the music you love, then we have accomplished what we set out to do.
