WELCOME TO THE HOME OF V8!

Mark

Mark first appeared on the music scene at the age of sixteen, playing in any band at any venue he could to establish himself as a guitarist and performer.
In 2000 he joined his first original material band HAIZE, as lead guitarist Mark gave the then, indie band a classic rock edge with big riffs and soaring solos.
After recording two four-track demos and playing hundreds of gigs up and down the country they decided to split in 2003.

Following Haze, Mark then went on to form SILENT FALL along with members of Coventry metal band Fume playing lead guitar. This extended Marks style as the original band was heavily influenced by American grunge and metal groups. They immediately developed a steady following of fans whilst playing at venues around the Midlands and recording a EP.

After the disbanding of Silent fall in 2004, Mark joined the long running and well established Rock/ Metal covers band V8. Replacing Guy Parfitt on lead guitar. Mark enjoyed four years of V8 performing along side Dave, Chaz and Pete Primmer on bass. The rock group played to large audiences at the biggest festivals and biker rallies all over UK, evolving Marks abiities on the guitar.

Wishing to broaden his musical diversity, Mark joined IRON HORSE.
Members of the cover band included John Ward -vocalist in Oliver Dawson's Saxon, Baz Eardley - lead guitarist of Chevy, Ted Duggen - Session drummer for artists like Elton John, and Tim Kelsall - bass player for Tubular Dog. Iron Horse had a very distintive classic rock sound; gritty vocals, solid rhythm section with Mark and Baz doubling up big riffs and harmonising solos, they completed the Iron Horse sound.

Due to relocation of band members, it became increasingly difficult to keep the band running, so Mark quickly formed FULLY STACKED. The rock & indie cover band was put together with good friends Carl Williams and Luca Rusnighi of HAVANA fame. They were able to hit the party and wedding circuit entertaining to all audiences with there professionalism and fun attitude.With other band commitments the band came to a close in early 2010.

With the then current guitarist, Fred Cox leaving to pursue his new reording career in London, Mark was called upon to fill the position of lead guitarist once again for V8.
Now with the amazing power-house rhythm section provided by Pat and Chaz, Mark pushing the boundaries on the lead guitar, Dave's strong rhythm and lead guitar work as well as front man perfection and distinctive vocals, V8 are now the No.1 Rock/Matal Covers Band in the UK.
