What to Expect
We have a 500 Watt PA if desired. We are a three piece band with a southern rock, blues and country sound. Much of our music is original but we do covers by bands like Third Day, Amy Grant and Casting Crowns. We are a fun group that encourages audience participation. We can cater our show to either a church type crowd, or a general public event without changing our set list much. We have found that our music is received well by folks of most ages.
Mars Hill is a three piece band from Torrington CT. We got together because we love music and wanted to play. After several months of making a rocket on our own, someone suggested we play for a local coffee house. We played our first gigs at Nirvana Juice Bar in Torrington and were very well received. Since then we have honed our skills and are looking forward to sharing our music with you. Our music does have some spiritual elements to it, but does not come across as judgmental or holier than thou. We simply love life and want to spread a good vibe.

Influences & Inspiration
We have an eclectic mix of influences. We range from Third Day, Petra, Casting Crowns, Amy Grant and Allison Krouse to Gov't Mule, The Black Keys, Little Feat, and Primus. You may not hear us imitate any one of these bands, but you will hear shades of musical similarities. We like to have the passion and Lyrical genius of Tom Waits while having a vocal style more like Third Day. We love to Jam, and just let the Spirit move us as we play. Each performance will end up unique, even though we use similar set lists.
120v Power to run our amps and PA system. Whatever lighting that is desired.
