About Mark West
Mark is an accomplished and schooled musician with a refined sound all to his own. As a guitar player for the last 35 years, his style could be compared to such artists as Jeff Beck, Wes Montgomery and Mike Stern, just to name a few. His performances always attack the audience with an expose of energy that stems from hi-tech rock and jazz to a melting pot of sounds that keep his listeners wanting more.
He is also a singer/songwriter and keyboard player with skills that offer a unique sound of originals unlike any other. Mark mixes it up with styles of rock, jazz, funk and latin into his own compositions to give it an extra edge of enjoyment that his audiences need. Never a dull moment, should be his title!
