"Reverend Red"

"The line up was a mix of rockabilly bands but one that stood out the most is Duane Mark. He’s a cross between Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, which in my book is a high compliment. He has a sound that is not quite country mixed with the ballads that rockabilly is known for. His music compliments the sound that Reverend Red has, bringing a fresh sound to the Hi Dive." - Christine Larranaga - In Tune Colorado


Still working on that hot first release.



Are you looking for an artist that displays creativity and maturity in their music? As a veteran touring act with over 15 years of experience in the industry, Duane Mark is that artist. After many years on the road with various rock bands, Duane Mark decided to focus his efforts on writing stories of American life, the old west, the craziness of love, and the good ol' hard working man. With influences such as Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Waylon Jennings, Tom Petty, and Dave Grohl, his music is a fine blend of Americana, Country and Rock. Whether playing a county fair, a large festival, or a local bar, he works hard to truly engage his audience. Music is important on stage, but putting on a show to remember is equally important in Duane Mark's never to be humble opinion!

Duane Marks musical philosophy is built on the idea that "a song that holds its own when played with one instrument and a vocal is the foundation for a great musical composition." He shares his stories with the conviction of a soapbox preacher, moving along a broad range of vocals that vary from a whiskey rasp to a honey smooth melody. While the vocals draw you into the story being told, the adept instrumentation roots you in the music. This acoustic driven music is a perfect complement to a wide variety of musical genres, whether it be a concert event dominated by Country, Hard Rock, Folk, Punk, Americana, Rockabilly, or otherwise. Simply put, this music is relatable to a medley of life's characters.

Performing on the road both as a solo act and also with his backing band, The Get Down Bandits, Duane Mark and his teams professionalism and work ethic are well known and highly praised. Usually traveling as a 3 piece band, The Get Down Bandits provide Duane Mark with thorough drum, bass, electric guitar, and banjo backing, along with excellent vocal harmonizing. Occasionally other veteran musicians will make appearances on stage to give the show even more dynamics.

Continuing to build a fan base, both regionally and nationally, Duane Mark is hard working and ever busy putting together new ways to reach potential new fans. Clever contests, quality merchandise, social networking, and solid live performances are all a critical part of the success and growth of this act.

There is no shortage of bands you and your organization could choose, and each one can feed you the typical lines about how great they are, and how much everyone loves them; however, wouldn't you feel more comfortable with experienced artists who know the ins and outs of the industry, and are seasoned professionals on stage? Duane Mark strives to make lives richer through music, and above all else, to put on an unforgettable show!
