1. We raised OVER 15,000 MEALS FOR GLEANERS

BELIEVE in us...

Happy holidays, it's Mark, and I have some questions for you. Do you really know us? Do you know where our heart is? Do you believe that we have the ability to take our purpose/music to the masses? If the answer is no to any of these, please read on.
The music industry is tough. There's no doubt about that.  Jake and I have been pursuing music now for 8 years. 8 years of horrible…

Who else would it be but Mark the Shark? Today, I'm going to continue our great 'True Not-so-Hollywood Stories' saga....... It was August 17th, 2011, and Def Leppard was headlining DTE. Our album was fresh off the presses, so Elijah and I decided to make a trip up to DTE to let those pesky 'Leppard Heads' get a whiff of our BRAND NEW ROCK JAMS would surely send them into a…
