Mark is a highly sought after performer and has headlined at almost every casino and nightclub in Las Vegas! He is the recipient of numerous highly coveted entertainment and humanitarian awards! Mark's new show "A Night At The Copacabana" has received rave reviews and always ends with a standing ovation and a cheering audience dancing in the aisles!
Besides winning "Las Vegas Entertainer of the Year", Mark appeared on NBC's Star Search, where his rendition of Conway Twitty's "It's Only Make Believe" beat out a five-time winner and earned him the victory!
Any first time listener is likely to be struck by the quality of Mark's powerful voice. Part velvet, part gravel, and all taut emotion, it's a voice ideally suited to perform the songs of the Great American Songbook. His is a voice that can be alternately rough as a sandpaper embrace, or as cool as a tall glass of milk.
Mark's love of performing began early in life with leading roles in The Boston Children's Theatre. After several years of guitar lessons, he discovered the other love of his life....singing. He sang in the church choir five days a week and starred in many musical productions in surrounding community theaters. Mark started his first band at the age of 16, playing weddings and other events. He worked for two seasons at the South Shore Music Theatre in Cohasset, MA working with many celebrities. He carefully studied their talents and took what he thought was their best and put them into his own show.
Mark's first exposure to the national limelight came from his dead-on impression of a matronly grandmother. As fortune would have it, Jay Thomas, a regular on Cheers and Murphy Brown, heard Mark while in Boston and asked him to be a regular on his radio show in Hollywood. He was an instant hit!
Mark, in character, interviewed the likes of William Shatner, Geraldo Rivera, Woody Harrelson and others. Over the next three years Mark became syndicated in over twenty major radio stations across the country and became the number one commodity in radio.
The victory on Star Search and the recognition which followed from the Las Vegas establishment, including three consecutive "Best Male Vocalist" honors, proved sweet indeed. Mark and his band became one of the most highly sought after headliners in Las Vegas, playing at all of the major strip properties.
Mark hit CD, "The Crooner" was produced by Keith Olsen, one of the great record producers in America, having success with such artists as Fleetwood Mac, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Rick Springfield and Pat Benatar, to name a few.
