Dear Friends, Fans, and Music Lovers

Well……
Looks like we made it through another
tuff winter in LA 🙂

I’ve been cleaning up that Mustang and
buying gas …..while I can afford it.
Spring is around the corner and its a good
time of the year for an oil change,
a tire rotation and a cruise to the beach !

If you celebrate the Easter season
I wish you a beautiful day and service.
My Sunday mornings are usually with
our church band at Christ Luthern in West Covina.
Come visit us sometime.

Stay well
Share the Love & Music
Blessings…..Mark

Dear Friends, Fans, and Music Lovers
It’s February and I just celebrated another birthday,
on one of the warmest days in Los Angeles I can remember
….. and I’m not complaining.

Happy Lunar New Year !
I started the celebration by taking my grandson to see
Kung Foo Panda 3. Then followed that up with
some dumplings and Kung Pao Chicken….Too much fun !!

Well, I’m not playng in Asian restaurants,
BUT I AM playing some Amazing places with some Amazing food.
So come on out and let’s celebrate…. whatever you want!

Happy New Year !

Santa Claus brought me a new set of tires for Christmas 🙂

So, I took a little road trip to visit
my life long friend John and his family.
We met learning guitar together back in Junior High.
He was a huge Beatles fan and I was a guitar geek.
Some things never change….

And speaking of the Beatles…..
It’s time for our 2nd Annual Beatles Singalong !
We have students from Le Cordon Bleu
serving refreshments and I’m giving away a
prize for the “Best Beatle Wig” and it’s all free
So bring your voices and join us for a night of fun.

Sunday January 17 2016 7 p.m.
Sage Granada Park United Methodist Church

Come out and enjoy the Music

Dear Friends, Fans,and Music Lovers

Santa is working overtime … and so am I 🙂

New gig, new area code, new night for December !
Brio is a cool Itailan restaurant
with a relaxed vibe and great food.
Come by and check it out !
And when you are out that way, tune in
KSBR 88.5 FM from Saddleback College.
A great radio station known to play some
Mark Carter music 🙂

I love this time of year !
It’s crazy busy for everyone.
But many times it seems to be in a loving ,
giving way. When many go out to do
something ….for someone else.
And as this world is changing so quickly
I am praying that we all find a little more
….for someone else.

Have a beautiful Christmas season
full of music, love, and good health.
Blessings……Mark

Dear Friends, Fans, and Music Lovers

Looking for something different from Santa ?
Is there a singer/musician in your family ?

This time of year I do some extra work in my studio.
Clients put together a 3 or 4 song CD as Christmas
gifts for family and friends. It’s usally pretty
fun and a great time even if you haven’t had any
studio experience. I have done sessions also for
many, many, songwriters both pro and amatuer.
Give me a call if you are interested.

In the meantime ….
There’s some guitar swingin’ to do !

No more sand, surf or waves

Even the words, El Nino sound sweet ”

Dear Friends, Fans, and Music Lovers

How’s your summer going ?

In Southern California it’s all about
the beach, theme parks, and more beach !

Last month I had some extra work in
Long Beach, Laguna Beach and Manhattan Beach.
Ah, Oh,…I did find some time to catch a sunset ….
Always trying to mix a little fun with work you know 🙂

Theme Parks…
As Disneyland celebrates 60 years, I remember working summer nights at the Carnation Plaza with the Horace Heidt Orchestra back in the 1990’s.
A great Big Band playing swing music and enjoying the dancers night after night. ….Good Times !

I hope you are having some summer fun my friends.
Thanks again for ail your support !
Blessings……Mark
