Bio.. The Mark Bennett Band..s unique sound is a fusion of origional songs, in the Irish singer, songwriter tradition and contemporary acoustic Folk-Rock. Mark Bennett..s songs deal with themes such as love, emigration and the journey of life. His powerful ballads and modern beats come to life through the organic grooves created by the other memebers of the band. .... In today’s multimedia world the universe of music revolves around image, video clips, computer generated sounds, what’s in and what’s out, where but few are prepared to open their minds to influences outside of the “mainstream”. Inlight of this necessity to label music and performer one asks if it is at all possible, without the aid of elaborate visual and sound effects, armed only with a voice, a guitar, and a passion to entertain to captivate an audience… The answer is yes! Mark Bennett with his eclectic mix of self composed songs, spontaineous energetic humor and intuitive interpretations of old and new songs brings soul to the hearts of his audiences! .... .. .... .. .... .. .. .. .. .. .. ..
