“Summertime, and the livin is easy, fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high”
….George Gershwin

Well, I’m not much on fishing , but,
I am enjoying the summer, and a litte bit of down time. I started the month with a trip to see my son, his wife and 2 kids.We took a drive up to beautiful Park City Utah and had a great visit.  The kids are full of energy and I got to take a Starbucks break daily and even help out with a little potty training…..            Oh, the life of a Rock Star !

 There have been some private parties this month and also in August. But  I do have a couple of weekend dates open if you got a Pool Party or End of the Summer Bash ?  ….Cow-a-Bunga  Dude !!
 
There are also a couple of cool things in the works for the upcoming months.
So stay tuned…
 

Blessings………….Mark

Dear Friends, Fans, and Music Lovers

Hi folks,
I’m way behind on this one !
The holidays are here and I can’t believe this year is almost over and honestly it’s been a pretty busy one ! ….Soooooo I’m very very grateful to all who come out and support my work and keep my phone ringing.This world just keeps on moving and the power of music is still rockin my boat.Performing, teaching or recording its all very
fullfilling and at times consuming, but nothing can replace its beauty ….for me.

I pray this season we can all slow down and
share music with those we love and care for.

Stay warm.
Merry Christmas……Mark
