Dear Friends, Fans, and Music Lovers

How are you all doing ?

I’m recovering from yet another birthday !

My kids surprised me big time this year with
a new Eastman guitar. I am really diggin
this instrument, It’s a beautiful archtop jazz guitar.
You’ll be hearing it early in my shows because of it’s
beautiful mellow tone.
But not to worry, my trusty Fender Stratocaster is
always nearby for Rocking Out     :)

So stop by when you can
and say hello to my “Brand New Love” !!

Stay well……Mark

Guitar Geekin 101

I love all kinds of guitar playing
and all kinds of guitar players.
I was recently reading a interview with
Brian Setzer of the Stary Cats fame.
When he was growing up he said his family
could not afford lunch money and his mom packed his lunch.
But they found $5 a week for guitar lessons !
The power of music.

I often think about my first lessons from my
grandfather who was a guitar teacher in Tulsa Ok.
We never know where the road leads in this life.
Truth is, I’m still enjoying the view and the people
I meet along the way. I hope you are too..
See you on the tour

Hope to see you soon
Blessings…….Mark
