Anything from one man with a guitar and a harmonica, to a full on rock and roll show as good as any 5 piece band.
Mark William is a solo act with enough talent and diversity to perform most any venue. Weather you require a campfire sing along, a low key background performance, or an all out party one man band, I can easily fit the bill.
With music ranging from cowboy and folk, to Joe Satriani shred, todays pop, to jazz, and country all tossed into one show.
A professional performer with over 30 years of stage, studio, and theatrical shows behind me, I know and understand the importance of hiring a good entertainer for your event.
The "Digital Band" For all of my one man band shows utilize digital technology to create everything from the simple duet sounds of Simon and Garfunkel to the all out orchestrated sounds of performers like Garth Brooks, The Lumineers, The Cars, and many many other great bands. All of the digital sampling, and instrumental background music was created, performed, and recorded by me. No other musicians were involved in the creation of the music. This offers you the advantage of getting a band's worth of great music at the expense of hiring a solo performer. So you can have a virtual band at your event without breaking your budget. The only difference is......you won't have 4 or 5 strangers drinking and eating all your food or trying to otherwise take over your event. With energy and diversity, I can deliver an entertaining, all inclusive night of fun for any event where you'll swear that you hired a whole band, or I can lay back and just play great music for dinner gatherings and conventions. It's up to you.
So if you want the best.....hire the best. Contact me to make arrangements and I promise......you will not be disappointed!
