~Mark was the perfect touch to a perfect day of grilling, drinking and backyard pool fun for 16 friends and family over the 4th of July weekend. His music kicked the party up and gave everyone the energy needed to have a good time in the AZ heat. He arrived about an hour before show time and seamlessly set up his equipment and started jamming to the good feeling sounds of summer. Mark was great to work with and I would recommend him as entertainment to anyone I know.
