About ME & HIM

ME & HIM are an Ibiza based Rock and Blues duo consisting of: Richard Parker (Guitar and main vocals) and Pepe Zappa (Bass and vocals).

Originally formed by Richard Parker on guitar, and Allan Shephard on bass in 1995, after the country-rock band Gringo disappeared.

Although they’d had seven pretty succesful seasons, at the end of Summer 2001, Allan decided to leave Ibiza and move to Italy. Richard started looking for another bass player to take his place, and met by chance Pepe, who was playing keyboard by those days, but longing for picking up his old bass guitar again.

From May 2002, ME & HIM carried on with equal success, that’s been increasing throughout the years as the duo keeps going deeper into “guitar music”, Rock and Blues, and taking higher challenges that allow a more powerful performing, and specially Richard to develop his brilliant and creative guitar playing. Pepe takes care of creating backing tracks and mixing board control.

Since there’s not many other options in the island, ME & HIM do mostly hotel venues, and mainly around the Santa Eulalia-Es Canar area during the summer season, bringing some good old rock music to their many times happily surprised guests, expecting a more conventional hotel show.

  5. What a wonderful discovery to happen upon you two on our first-time holiday in Ibiza! Whenever I travel, I always carry some harps hoping to connect with other musicians who are more into feeding the music than into feeding their egos. You were so welcoming; what a pleasure to play with you and make it work in the structure! We’ve all got those big ears; so much fun. I’ll get a couple of photos out to you soon.
    Best in all, Carol Moog

    • Definitelliy, it was OUR PLEASURE to have you joining us for a while that we found far too short. What a pity not to have you around anymore!
      Thanks for you beautiful comment; we felt the same way about you. And I tell you, GIRL, YOU’VE GOT WHAT IT TAKES!

      Wherever you are, we hope to keep you in touch. Thank you very much.

      Good luck and all the best.

      Pepe & Richard

  9. Hi Rick and Pep, you might or might not remember us. We were at Hotel Paraiso, Es Canar in early Oct. ? (bald bloke with ponytail? the one you ALMOST embarresed into singing?) Well you’ve jogged me into picking up my Flying ‘V’ again! So next time we come to Ibiza again you MIGHT??? get that jam you suggested. We only stayed a week, but apart from the hotel being great, it was you + Pepe’s gig that made it a really great experience. Taa for taking the trouble to be really good. By the way, Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you both, and all of your loved ones. Much health. Art + Maggie.

    • Hi, Art!
      Sorry this reply took long, but I (Pepe, the webmaster) have been diconnected for a few days due to moving to a new house. Happy New Year for you and Mggie too.
      Thanks for your nice comment. I’m really glad you decided to pick up your guitar back and I have to say that we really look forward to get you and your Flying V on stage.
      See you back next summer then?
      All the best.

  20. Saw you play at Hotel Miami Es Cana, late August – great great guitar playing (and bass playing too!). Great choice of material too. Particularly enjoyed ‘Another Brick In The Wall’ and ‘Black Magic Woman’ Very different from and a huge improvement on usual dire hotel entertainment. We stopped guitar player outside whilst he was loading equipment to say thanks for a great show. Maybe he’ll remember!
    Keep On Rockin’….Martin & Denise Ball and the whole Fam Damly.
