Drummer Mark Pelkey


Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Keyboard, Piano.


I am seeking like minded, mature musicians for live performance in a variety of venues. There are no limitations on genres but I would rather stick with anything which is pleasing to the ear. Music that people can get up and move to. If it means playing covers with a few originals, so be it.

Instrument types: Acoustic/Electric guitar, bass, keyboards, saxophone, vocals, backup vocals etc.

I am open to all inquiries but must stress; I'm looking for experienced, professional musicians with positive attitudes and a strong work ethic.


History: Started out playing to the radio, trio with both my parents (guitar, piano, drums), first lesson age 8, learned to read & write music by age 10 while taking public & private lessons. Training involved basic and advanced studies while covering a wide variety of genres including Funk and Latin.

Sole percussionist for intermediate school band, transitioning into middle school band, jazz & marching band, high school band, marching band, jazz band and later; ensembles, studio recording, theatrical productions and involvement with about a dozen bands/independent musicians.

Involvement in local music in CT and western MA since 1997; performing in CT, MA, NY/NYC, RI & NJ. Recorded a full length album Zing Studios, Westfield, MA in 2007 entitled Epidemic with the band Clip (released 2009). Radio airplay on Lazer 99.3, 106.9 WCCC and Internet Radio stations worldwide. Trained in music theory, notation and composition.
