Lead Guitar, Steel Guitar, and Lead/Harmony Vocals
Mark can be seen on a typical Mystics night playing a blaze of hot lead guitar, sweet melodies in dance music, or behind his pedal steel for when that special country flavor is needed.
Mark's skillful repertoire began at the age of 12 when he became part of the Minnoe family act, The Silver Spur Band. At age 17, Mark won first place in a State-wide contest as Junior Instrumentalist and Vocalist, in addition to winning other such contests.
When Mark founded the band Southern Express, he spent the next sixteen years building the group into a first-rate, widely acclaimed group selected to be the opening act for such professional shows as Marty Martel and the Midnight Special Band and Billy Montana.
Today, Mark holds it all together as the Band Leader for The Mystics and with him as their "point man", the band has become a country music force to be reckoned with!
