He can tailor his show to your event and can perform solo or with a band depending on your needs and budget with a network of musicians able to fit any bill!
Mark has performed extensively for almost 40 years and has held long-term solo residencies at several major resort venues including Stratton Mountain, The Killington Grand Hotel, Killington Skyeship, Grizzly's at Stratton VT, The Grist Mill (now the Foundry), Killington VT and Jackson Gore, Ludlow VT.

Mark brings a band's energy and musical sophistication to every solo show. Sets are programsmed precisely to provide a solid hour of non-stop entertainment and to flow from song to song in seconds. He has put his Berklee College of Music training as an arranger to good use in producing subtle yet powerful backing tracks for his tunes with real acoustic guitar, bass and drums. He controls these with a foot pedal and plays through a very small, high quality amplifier, producing a full band sound at low volume with no need for other players, a cost-effective, fun, live music solution.
Mark's equipment is fully self- contained and can be powered by batteries, freeing him from the usual constraints of power supply in outdoor performances. Book him to play anywhere outside in good weather for your next special event.
