ABOUT BIG BAD WOLF

All four members agree that an important strength is to choose songs that people recognize but don’t often hear. The Big Bad Wolf's collection of classic covers ranges from Beatles to Bowie to James Brown to CCR with many interesting stops in between. A party with the Big Bad Wolf is always a high octane, rip-roaring good time. The number one word fans use to describe The Wolf is “FUN!”

Mark has been playing in bands since his teens and thanks his mom for insisting at age 11 that he play a musical instrument. His musical roots are deep in the soil of the golden era of rock and roll. The Americana sound, the Beatles, and the blues all continue to influence what and how he plays today.
