Name Origins

There are about 74 known explanations for the Origin of Parker House and Theory's name.Please add them as you see fit.


The band used to jam at their good friend Sean Parker's house in Metuchen NJ. There, he trained them and taught them an intense amount of intricate music theory. Sean died of a rare form of cancer days before they were to all play a big show. On his deathbed, he supposedly had a closed meeting with the rest of PHT and no one knows what he said. But the boys played the show in honor of Sean and unveiled their moniker. If you look at the name Parker House, it is obvious. So is Theory, but the creepy part is that SEAN's name is also spelled out, with the SE from 'house' and the AN from 'and'.

overheard at a show

I heard that they got the name from Miles Davis and Charlie Parker, and how they used to jam at The Bird's house, and they just went crazy redefining the musical boundaries and theories that existed


Andy Wesby is rumoured to have been involved with a very famous Motown Recording Artist

Speculation exists as to why Carlos doesn't use his real last name.
