Emerging from the studio with their debut album release, Carousel,Philly-based songwriter, vocalist, guitarist, and producer Mark Evans is poised to open a new creative chapter and take his band to great heights.
Backed by a rhythm section of Philly stalwarts, Roy Fisher (bass), Jeff Pancoast (drums), Grammy winner Pat Robinson (keyboards), Allen James (lead guitar), a string quartet and three-piece horn section, Carousel takes the listener on a high-wire journey through addiction to recovery, with plenty of stops for insanity along the way. Merging the psychedelic sounds of the late 1960’s with Beatles-inspired accents and pop sensibilities, Carousel showcases the emotionally charged songwriting abilities of an artist that knows no boundaries.
The Mark Evans Band celebrates the official release of Carousel on vinyl on August 24, 2019 when they perform a very special concert at Chaplin’s Music Hall, Spring City, PA. Show time is 7:00 P.M. Tickets may be purchased online at https://www.chaplinslive.com/markevansband
A limited 200 copy pressing vinyl will be available the night of show. Every purchase will also receive a free digital download of the album.
