For more than 30 years Mark has entertained audiences in the Pacific and the West Coast of the United States with his silky smooth vocals and unique finger-style guitar.
An accomplished songwriter, Mark also covers a wide vairity of artists including James Taylor, Paul Simon, Jim Croce, The Eagles, The Beatles and many, many others.
Mark takes these well known songwriters and applys his own interpertation to their familiar and, not so familiar songs. Mark often says he “Likes to take the old songs and wreck them.” We think he wrecks them pretty well.
Mark moves easily between Folk, Rock, Country, Americana and Gospel and provides an evening of fine music for your listening pleasure.

What to Expect
I utilize Taylor Guitars and Bose amplification and processing. The sound is superior in small to medium sized venues seating 300 - 500 people and works wonderfully well outdoors.
I provide hours of original and/or cover music with a professional awareness and sensitivity to the atmosphere. I interact well with small and large audiences and can also provide a light background of music during dinner or receptions. Your can get up and dance the night away or be surrounded by mellow accompaniment to a romantic evening of fine music for your listening pleasure.
Additional Booking Notes
I only require a standard 20 amp household outlet and a 25' square flat surface to set up equipment
