Drums & Lead Vocals
Mark started playing drums on a toy drum set, banging out ‘Love Her Madly’ by the Doors at the age of 4. His sweet grandmother bought him his first “real” set of drums when he was 12, and he’s been playing ever since then. His musical influences in that timeframe have ranged from the great rock and roll of AC/DC to jazz-fusion-progressive bands like King Crimson and Rush. Mark’s skills have honed over the years through formal musical instruction and teaching drums for marching percussion and a variety of music projects ranging from Contemporary Christian to Country-Southern Rock. He’s played with a number of great artists in the past like Tim Smith (Sheryl Crow, Jellyfish, Neil Finn), and Brian Harrison (producer, music director, Shelby Lynne), but today is having the time of his life playing with Shane and Don in Used Groove.
