Hard-hitting rhythms, melodic grooves and soulful vocals are key elements in
what separate The Mark Sexton Band from other groups. Their latest release
with Â³MultiformityÂ² in early 2008 marked the turning point for this band,
seeing huge success locally and regionally. The recent “Multiformity Summer
Tour” spoke volumes about the bands musicianship and dedication to spreading
their music and message throughout the West coast.
The success and positivity from their first tour saliently rubbed off on all
who witnessed the bands performances letting the music truly speak for
itself. Seeing albums fly at every show has more than confirmed the future
for this funky ALL-acoustic reggae rock band.
Â³No off-nightsÂ² is the motto that these guys hold true at every show.
Singer/Guitarist/Songwriter Mark Sexton, Bassist Alex Korostinsky,
Saxophonist Ryan Parrish and Drummer Dan Weiss have an absolute love for
performing and making music together. This quality is apparent at every show
making each and every performance better than the last.
This love for creating music started in 2005 and since then Mark and the
band have become passionate. The album Â³MultiformityÂ² gets its name from the
melting pot of musical styles that make up the discÂ¹s contents. Â³We blended
reggae, funk, pop, jazz and hints of world-beat all together in a musical
blender and out came this awesome album!Â² says Alex who also co-produced the
Getting ready to hit the road big-time, the band is churning out new
material showcasing the soulful songwriting, smooth guitar tones and vocals
of Mark, thumping bass grooves by Alex, crystal clear drum rhythms courtesy
of Dan, and unique improvisation of Ryan. With spectacular live
performances, The Mark Sexton Band is driving full-force making a name for
themselves on the West Coast. The Band will be playing at Alex’ s Bar &
Restaurant Plaza in Ashland, Oregon on Thursday, June 11, 2009 at 9pm. FREE
