MARK CURTIS, 50'S & 60'S ROCK 'N' ROLL.
If it's Rock and Roll you want - this is the guy. 'The Stage'.
Mark has been playing in bands and solo for years.... and years. He's performed everywhere, from the pubs and clubs of the south coast of the U.K. to the national holiday camps. He's played the theatre circuit in various acts, and supported artists such as The Searchers, The Dreamers, Marty Wilde, The Comets, the list goes on. He's been fortunate enough to work in Sweden, the U.S. and has spent a lot of time in Spain.
He started out at a very young age as a drummer in the Rock 'n' Roll bands of Portsmouth, went onto guitar and then onto fronting his own bands.
His musical influences come from the 50's mid west of America. The raw sound of Elvis, Carl Perkins, Eddie Cochran and Johnny Cash is the sound he tries to create, basic, thumpy Rock 'n' Roll. Then there is the more smooth sound from the British Rock 'n' Roll scene, the Billy Fury ballads, Cliff and The Shadows. Also a big fan of the U.K's 60's Beat music he performs music by The Beatles, The Searchers and other bands of that era.
Recently Mark has been performing every night in 'The Rock and Roll House', Benidorm, Spain.
