Mark Schmitz


Band to Join.


Currently a member of The Plant Band but I'm always up for sitting-in or something new. I've been playing drums for over 30 years. I enjoy playing all types / genres of music. I'm also a pretty good tenor vocalist, love singing background harmonies, etc. (harmonies are a must). That's me singing on Long Train Running. I like to accurately cover popular, high energy, complex, rock/pop/funk songs (think 70-90's XRT radio). Anything that gets the crowd dancing. I have a roomy comfortable rehearsal studio space at my house with PA / Mixer / mics and my drum kit. Not really interested in endlessly jamming or playing obscure or original music. I like playing popular songs that everyone knows and are instantly recognizable to keep the audience engaged.
