Mark Andrew Band
Fans will recognize him from season 4 of the The Voice and season 14 of American Idol, Mark Andrew joins us on the Park Stage for the Cheese Curd Festival!
Gaining new believers with their thrilling performances, masterful musicianship, and the unique and soulful vocals of Mark Andrew, himself, The Mark Andrew Band is borrowing from aspects of the great music of the past and fusing that with a new, vibrant sound, to create an incredible musical experience.
Imagine taking a powerful and dynamic vocalist like Joe Cocker or Van Morrison mixed in with a rhythm section straight out of Stax Records. Then give the musicians the opportunity to let loose. That is what happens when this band takes the stage. Their music is tingling-good, and Mark’s vocals and lyrics pack a punch. Hard to imagine? It’s for real and festival attendees are going to experience it up close and personal!
Best described as folksy-bluesy, Mark writes and performs songs that cross genres and generations. His strong, soulful vocals together with lyrics that approach the poetic create a musicality that is thoughtful yet familiar and pleasing to the ear. He understands a good ‘hook’ and will take little time reeling us in with his refreshing sound and well-written songs.
The layers of rhythm, nuance, and dynamics that the band adds to his songs provide a richness and vitality that helps his music stand apart. Grab a beer and some curds and park yourself on the grass in front of the Park Stage; with a few traditional ballads and popular songs mixed in, you can count on a well- rounded meal of stimulating, thoughtful, heartfelt music that will satisfy all our musical appetites.
