In 1992, Mark focused his career on Country music and began writing and performing in both LA and Nashville. The West was first formed as a backup band for Mark's original music. It has now grown into the most versatile Country band around. These great musicians have collectively played all over the world, recording and touring with many of today's major artists. The West covers nearly all areas of Country music including Western Swing, old-style, fiddle-and-banjo Bluegrass, Classic Country, Country Rock, high energy Country Dance music and they can also throw in some good, old Rock 'n' Roll, for good measure. The West -the best possible choice for your upcoming event. See ya'll at the show!
