Mark soon joined The Volcanics shortly after they were formed. Having lived across the street from Frankie and being childhood best friends since kindergarten, it was natural for Mark to hop right in the band and complete The Volcanics’ line up as a four piece. Mark is heavily influenced by punk rock which is depicted by his aggressive rhythm strumming patterns and sound. Mark is the primary engineer for the recordings of The Volcanics’ two full length albums. Not only does he “operate” on Volcanics’ recordings, “Dr. Mark” also operates in the O.R. room at the hospital he works at.
Mark played bass with Frankie on guitar in a previous “3 piece surf band” called The Futuremen before forming The Volcanics.
