About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

As a professional musician and entertainer for over 30 years, Mark James is most known for his ever present smile, warm personable rapport with any size audience and his versatility in adjusting the mood of the event to the crowd and setting. A wide songlist of over 750 songs and a unique sense of humor can take the evening down unexpected paths as the situation requires. Mark loves what he does and the audience can feel that. With the addition of a steel drummer, the act becomes "Caribbean Sunset" available from a duo and trio up to a 6pc Band. This combination becomes the perfect musical backdrop to summertime events featuring authentic caribbean music for listening and dancing. Summertime work is concentrated on (but not limited to) the Jimmy Buffett Parrothead community featuring select JB covers, singer/songwriter material and tropical flavored country/rock. Specific songlists covering different music styles can be assembled as required. BIO: As a solo entertainer, Mark James has performed in various settings across the country from intimate parties to corporate events, the college circuit and many park concerts over his 30+ year career. As a lead guitarist, Mark James had been performing with John Frinzi, including several dates with different members of Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band: Doyle Grisham, Michael Utley, Robert Greenidge, Mac McAnally, Nadirah Shakoor and Peter & Jim Mayer. This personal accomplishment and experience has had a great effect on how he relates to and performs this style of music; as an ensemble player, solo performer and songwriter. Mark continues to perform with John on select dates when John is in the Northeast and various dates in Key West during Meeting Of The Minds. He has also been collaborating with Dennis McCaughey of Tropical Soul around Southeast PA and Yankee Jack when in Key West, FL. Mark James was lead guitarist for the premier JB tribute band Parrotbeach from 2006 to 2009, performing extensively throughout the US and Caribbean.

Mark was the hit of the party. Everyone commented on how good he was. He kept everyone engaged and entertained young and old. Look forward to getting a chance to have him play again.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on September 26, 2020From Mechanicsburg, PA

Mark is a Pro. He is a great entertainer that develops a rapport with the audience and keeps them engaged and having a good time throughout the night. His talents with a guitar are exceptional.

Private PartyReviewed on March 22, 2012From Harrison, NY

I need more stars for Mark James! He has a beautiful combination of being both tremendously professional and incredibly personable. And then when he started to sing, we never wanted him to stop! People are still talking about our event and it is all due to Mark James and his amazing performance. In addition to being a great singer and player, he is also a super performer - he did a great job engaging and interacting with the audience as well. His drummer was super, too! I cannot wait to bring him back to NY! Can't rate him high enough. It was a true pleasure working with Mark James.
