Mark Lynch: musician
I have been playing professionally since the mid-1970s when I was a teenager. All the classic rock bands: Beatles, Rolling Stones, Doors, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, etc. etc.. are huge influences. But I was playing in venues back then that wanted Top 40, beach music, disco, country.. so I learned it all.
As I've matured, through the 80s & 90s and beyond, it's been the same. Lots of great music in all kinds of styles. The Police/Sting, R.E.M., and U2 are later bands that I really admire.
For the past few years I've leaned toward jazz.. I always admired it, but am now confident enough to play in this genre. Some of my favorites there would be Pat Metheny & Jeff Beck.
What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 30 - 240 minutes
During a performance, my primary focus is to provide the best interpretation of the music as possible. Particularly at weddings and other private party-type events, I am NOT looking to draw attention to myself, but simply to enhance the occasion.. in the background.
My goal at all times is to satisfy the customer, and to be professional in appearance and demeanor. I am very laid-back; no video of me is going to go viral on YouTube! If you're looking for someone flamboyant, with strong visual appeal and charisma- seek elsewhere. I'm a 50 year old man, and I play guitar extremely well because I've done so for 35 years and I'm passionate about it.
If your primary requirement is a guitarist that will give you professional and well above average musicianship, look no further..
I provide all necessary equipment.
