Mark Mackay
Mark Mackay
A blazing guitarist, an evocative vocalist and a songwriter steeped in authenticity: At the crossroads of country music and rock and roll is where Mark Mackay makes his stand. Fronting a powerhouse band, he rocks the room with rowdy charm and persuasive conviction.

Headlining festivals, concerts and clubs and opening for country stars like Frankie Ballard, Eli Young Band, Cole Swindell, Tracy Lawrence and Old Dominion, plus legendary rockers The Marshall Tucker Band, 38 Special, Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi), Jackie Lee, Drew Baldridge, and Joe Nichols. in a recent 12-month period Mark played 230 shows as Music Connection magazine named him on their annual list of the country’s Top 100 National Live Acts

Mark, who grew up south of San Francisco enthralled by country music and trained as a classical pianist, exemplifies a wide screen Western perspective in his songs. With two previous EP’s, he now ups the ante in a new eight-song collection.

Between the introspective journeys and boisterous shows, he locates the magic alchemy that defines his artistry. “Touring doesn’t make you jaded,” Mark professes. “It becomes more fun.”
Matt Jaffe
Matt Jaffe
Matt Jaffe is a rock & roll singer/songwriter from San Francisco. Cutting his teeth on countless open mics around the Bay Area, Matt started taking music (a little bit) more seriously when Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads offered to produce his first record. Since then, Matt has continued to churn out more songs than he can remember the words to, oversaturate the market with gigs (opening for the likes of Mavis Staples, Wilco, and Blues Traveler), and collaborate with the likes of Chuck Prophet and Tom Higgenson of the Plain White T’s. Fresh off the release of his first LP, California’s Burning, Matt Jaffe is street-teaming with the best of them to bring rock & roll back to the masses.
