Mark Evans Band
Mark Evans Band’s 2018 debut release “Carousel” was critically acclaimed and led to their opening for international touring acts including Denny Laine and Micky Dolenz.
Spearheaded by Mark’s songwriting and vocals, MEB is driven by a rhythm section of Philly stalwarts Roy Fisher and Jeff Pancoast; with Grammy winner Pat Robinson on keys and Rob Brodie on guitar. The band’s sound offers both a look back to a time when records were crafted with passionate abandon, and a look forward to what is still possible.
The band’s new single “The Beautician” was recorded during lockdown and features Bobby Michaels on Sax and John Marchiano on guitar.
Mark started writing songs at an early age and has enjoyed success at every stop along the way. From his early days on the Philly scene, to his decades in NYC, and a “residency” in Nashville, he’s been a band member, solo artist, songwriter, producer, filmmaker and professional actor. He cowrote the love ballad for the hit USA Films release “Never Again” starring Jeffrey Tambor and Jill Clayburgh.
Mark was a finalist for 2020 Songwriter of the Year by 91.7 FM Hometown Heroes

"The album's cover art even depicts the underside of a carousel roof as a record. Inside are pop/rock songs that sound like they could have been released between 1966 and 1973." BRIAN BINGAMAN
