Melvin Sparks, 1946-2011

Price Chopper mourns the loss of Melvin Sparks – the kind and musically-gifted man who lent his voice, bluesy guitar licks and gleaming smile to our annual “House of BBQ” campaign. He helped us to fire it up, and for that, he will always have an honorary place in our ‘House’.

Melvin was an accomplished jazz guitarist who played alongside the likes of Little Richard and Marvin Gaye. He will be missed by the entire Price Chopper family.

If you would like to learn more about Melvin’s long musical career, you may read his obituary in the New York Times here.
