Mark is an accomplished Musical Director, having performed many musicals in university and beyond. Whilst in university, Mark became resident Musical Director for the Liverpool University Student Theatre (LUST) society, whose recent productions include Into the Woods, Guys and Dolls and Little Women.

Reviews

From customers:

Kerry J, 2 years ago

Mark was a great addition to our wedding. Mark played background music during the ceremony and learnt the songs we asked him to. A top class musician!

Paula S, 1 year ago

We hired Mark to play background jazz music during the drinks reception at our wedding. He was brilliant and really helped the ambience.
