About
Veterans of the Pacific Northwest music scene, the Seymour Baker Band is one of the area's hardest working bands, delighting audiences with silky smooth harmonies, intricate instrumental interplay and infectious rhythms. These talented musicians perform over 150 shows a year covering our favorites from Folk, Rock and Roll, R&B, and Country as wells as their own catchy originals. Their music can hold an audience close in a gentle ballad, and then bring them to their feet dancing to irresistible melodies and upbeat rhythms. While comfortable in cruise control, they easily accelerate into the fast lane so you can dance the night away.

A finely talented finger-style guitarist with a silky smooth voice, Mark Seymour has performed as a solo act for many years, capturing audiences with that magical blend of soulful guitar and velvety vocals. Growing up in a musical family Mark started playing piano at four years of age and naturally moved to the guitar after watching The Beatles debut on the Ed Sullivan Show. An accomplished songwriter, Mark also covers many styles of music, spanning multiple decades from show tunes to country, rock and roll to folk and rhythm and blues. After traveling and performing all over the world, a chance meeting with Rex Baker at an open mic in Gladstone Oregon led to this partnership that has stood the test of time.

Rex Baker has been involved in the Portland music scene since the late 70s. As a design engineer for Sunn and Fender, Rex designed sound equipment, and traveled the country testing new equipment designs with the top bands of the era including Queen, Jethro Tull, Yes, Rush and The Who. Rex also toured the Pacific Northwest with several bands, beginning in the 70s with “The Rocking Relics”. They opened for many national acts including the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, and Paul Revere and the Raiders. During the 80s and 90s Rex continued engineering work with Mackie, Seymour Duncan, Dean Markley and JBL. He also started touring the Pacific NW with “The City Kids Band” and they found steady work as the “house band” aboard the Columbia Gorge Sternwheeler. In 2005 and 2006, Rex toured with the show band “The Big Picture” performing in the Pacific NW, Palm Springs and Las Vegas.

The Seymour Baker Band augments their sound with the addition of Haley Michell, a lover of many musical styles. She performs anything from classical to jazz, pop to gospel. Her lyrical voice mixes with a touch of soul and her vocal versatility makes for unique set combinations that land on all of the favorites.

Adding those upbeat rhythms are a bevy of talented percussionists, including Jimmy Adamson on congas and high harmonies, Tommy Taylor on drums and Jon Graham on drums and high harmony. These percussionists collectively add more than one hundred years of experience holding down the beat.

Together this band of professional musicians provide hours of entertainment perfectly suited to your event. From intimate house concerts to full blown outdoor concert events, you can hire Mark as a solo act, the Seymour Baker Band duo, trio with Haley or percussion or the whole nine yards with five part music and harmony. Whatever your needs may be you can expect an event filled with that "Fine Music for Your Listening Pleasure."
