I'm a talented singer/songwriter that has been at it for nearly 20 years. I play a mix of folk, rock, blues, and americana. Book me for your venue or event and check it out!
Price Range: $100 - $300
Gig Length: 60 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
For most moderate venues (50-100 people), I bring all of my own gear in a surprisingly compact setup. I usually set up in a corner, out of the way of the clients/audience, and try to engage a little bit with the audience in order to help them feel more comfortable with me.
With larger venues, such as theaters, amphitheaters, large corporate events, etc. I will typically work with the venue's sound engineer (if available) to patch into the house system or I will bring my own system that can handle crowds between 600 - 100 people max.
I am all about the idea of having a clean and compact setup; no large speakers, big sets of guitar pedals, etc. While my equipment is nice and sounds great, I like to keep everthing focused on the music, not the equipment.
Mark Malan was born and raised in the Ogden, Utah area. From a young age, he was drawn to music and discovered his talent for writing and performing music nearly 20 years ago. His musical talents include singing, songwriting, and performing in the genres of acoustic folk rock, blues, and americana. Not only does he write many of his own songs, but he also covers great music from amazing artists such as Johnny Cash, Creedence Clearwater Revival, U2, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, Willie Nelson, etc.
Over the years, he has regularly performed in many venues in the Ogden area and beyond including the Ogden Amphitheater, the Ogden Eccles Egyptian Theater, Rovali's Italian Restaurant, The Oaks, The Ogden Farmer's Market, Roy Days, etc. He has also been the traditional performer over the last 7+ years for Smith & Edwards annual gun auction, a major yearly event that draws hundreds of people in Farr West, Utah.
Mark has long experience performing infront of crowds that range from hundreds of people to smaller venues of just a handful of people. Private events are also something that Mark enjoys to be a part of on a regular basis.

Additional Booking Notes
The nice thing about being a solo artist is that I don't require a lot of setup time, lighting, or stage space. Put me on a stage infront of a large audience, or in the corner of a quaint restaurant... I'm versital and comfortable in either setting.
All I really require is a working power outlet and maybe a little lighting or shade, depending on the setting. I even bring my own chair!
