About
Nationally acclaimed, multi-talented Mark Pressey intertwines undeniable stage presence and extraordinary vocal abilities with nearly every genre of music. He is a brilliant songwriter, composer, arranger, lyricist, entertainer and indisputably one of Denver's most sought-after pianists and vocalists. Mark plays blues, jazz, classical, popular standards and Broadway show tunes at renowned venues and private parties across the country.

Though he was born in Colorado, Mark spent many years in Los Angeles, where he was the music director for McClain Stevenson, the esteemed actor on the long running smash hit M*A*S*H. Mark recently played David Welsh's wedding (Welsh is the guitarist for the Grammy-nominated band, The Fray.)

Throughout his illustrious career, Mark has gigged at the prestigious Beverly Wilshire Hotel, the Brown Palace Hotel, Westin Tabor Center, Ivory's Piano Bar, Mel's Bar and Grill, the Grand Hyatt, the Burnsley Hotel, Baur's, Dazzle, the Inverness Hotel, and The Black Crown where he was house pianist and director of music.

Over the years, Mark has generated numerous local and national accolades. Penny Parker, columnist for the Rocky Mountain News, called Pressey a top ivory tickler, and Zagat Survey, in its United States Top Nightlife guide, hailed Pressey as a crooner who gets patrons humming with show tunes and hits by Elvis, Sinatra, Jimmy Buffet, and others. Colorado AvidGolfer magazine called Mark a pianist/vocalist extraordinaire and Sunset magazine wrote: His voice is stellar, his hands extraordinary, and with a songbook of over 5,000 titles, just try stumping him.

In 1994, Mark formed the Mark Pressey Trio, a brilliant jazz act that played all over Denver. In 2000, the Mark Pressey Trio became MP3 with the release of Mark's first CD, Ciao Vino. In 2004, Mark released another CD, titled Music at Mel's, a selection of 15 tunes dedicated to the regulars at Mel's Bar and Grill, where Mark played for five years. In 2006, Mark released "Ain't it Grand," a compilation of some his favorite solo piano tunes, and in 2011 "Daydream," another collection of solo piano. Mark and his trio play weddings, private parties, corporate events and clubs, while Mark continues to play solo gigs around Denver.

Mark is a great piano player. He played at our 50th wedding anniversary vow renewal ceremony and the dinner reception to follow. Mark's themes and tempo were so good during dinner and dancing that my guests applauded at the end of each piece. He also took several requests. Mark replied promptly to my telephone and email questions. He was on time for the gig. I recommend Mark for anyone who needs a great entertainer.

Mark was one of the most accommodating professionals I've run across in years. His library of songs was immense. His years of experience solidly contribute to his repertoire. It's been a long time since I've seen such a combination of (piano) playing and singing talent. He knows how to please the crowd, and was great at "feeling us out" to get a solid understanding of our musical wishes, and our voice range capabilities (for which he tunes his keys and such).

I've hired numerous pianists/singers over the years for various parties, and Mark Pressey was by far the best musician I've ever had. He was so professional, played all of our song requests, and was definitely the major highlight of our party. People danced and sang all night because of him. I would recommend Mr. Pressey without question and will certainly hire him again for future parties. On a scale of 1-10, Mr. Pressey was an 11. Such a beautiful voice and an absolutely fabulous pianist!!
