SOL PARTY - about the entertainers is a Caribbean music solo or duo with backing tracks, providing a full Island-band sound; based in Phoenix, Arizona. Mark Dolin sings and plays steel drum, sax, flute and keyboards. Mark was chosen to open for "The Beach Boys" in the summer of 2008! His island-band experience includes "Search Party," a popular Boston-based Caribbean band that appeared on "Star Search" and recorded original island-flavored music. Mark has entertained for many years in the greater Phoenix area, playing steel drum music for Bahama Breeze, Tommy Bahama's and the finest Arizona resorts and back-yard Caribbean and Luau parties.

Bradley (Phoenix private party) ~Mark was the perfect touch to a perfect day of grilling, drinking and backyard pool fun for 16 friends and family over the 4th of July weekend. His music kicked the party up and gave everyone the energy needed to have a good time in the AZ heat. He arrived about an hour before show time and seamlessly set up his equipment and started jamming to the good feeling sounds of summer. Mark was great to work with and I would recommend him as entertainment to anyone I know. Mike (Scottsdale private party)
