About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

This is the homepage for SheilaMark Band, SheilaMark Duo, SheilaMark Side by Side, CelticMoon Band, The Apple Strudel Gang, and Mark Hamza, solo accordion. Our music is available on YouTube, iTunes, and other digital services. Mark Hamza's Great Swamp Band, "Come Together" and SheilaMark Band "A Presence of the Blues,” are available on CD Baby. Mark Hamza is a lifelong musician who performs on Hammond organ and accordion. He is the premier Hammond organist in the North Eastern US and has toured with national acts including touring Europe. His Hammond organ is modified to show his bass pedal ability. He has recently added a “vintage” Korg version of an ARP Odyssey to the organ. His Sano accordion is set up to play in stereo. He can play Jazz, Blues, Rock, Zydeco, and The Great American Songbook on these amazing instruments. He also has a large repertoire of European music. Mark Hamza started accordion lessons when he was eight years old. At first, he was taught traditional German music by his father’s friend. When he was twelve, he took lessons from Matt Leydens who taught him the Great American Songbook among other music. Soon he secured a job in a Pocono resort playing in the lounge with a Canadian trumpet player, Bobby DuValle. Mark met a Country-Rock band, The Hank B. Show, in the Catskills and soon was touring with them. That band became the backup band for the 60’s group, “The Happenings.” He was introduced to analog synthesizers and other keyboards in that band. Mark joined “The Clarence Spady Band” and played with Clarence for many years, touring America and Europe. Mark currently lives in East Stroudsburg with his wife, Sheila, who is a wonderful singer. We are currently working together as SheilaMark, playing the music featured in the various websites contained here. Sheila Stratton-Hamza is a vocalist whose singing voice has been compared to many Blues and Jazz singers. Sheila is an award-winning singer for her work with Irish/Celtic bands. She can be the queen of “the groove,” rocking the Blues or be simple and delicate with her soul-inspired vocals. She has performed at many pubs, restaurants, and festivals in Northeast USA, Ontario, Canada, and Ireland. SheilaMark Band is a Hammond organ-driven, female-fronted band. We do Blues, Rock, Zydeco, and Jazz. Mark also plays accordion when needed. He plays all the bass lines on the organ with his feet. Our music favors the Classic Rock era with Sheila spotlighting the great female Blues and Rock performers. SheilaMark Duo SheilaMark Duo performs at pubs and restaurants. We play Blues, Rock, Zydeco, Jazz, and the Great American Songbook. Mark Hamza on accordion accompanies Sheila on vocals spotlighting the great female Blues, Jazz, and Rock performers. We add guitar, violin, and drums as needed. We can play ethnic music also. SheilaMark Side by Side SheilaMark side by side duo performs at senior facilities of all kinds. Sheila is the vocalist and Mark accompanies her on accordion. The mix of music we perform includes polkas, waltzes, tangos, songs from the 1920s-1970s, show tunes, and songs from the movies. We can accommodate special events at these facilities. Mark Hamza, Solo accordion Cafe accordion is Mark's explanation for what you would expect an accordion player to be playing at a European cafe or coffeehouse. His repertoire includes the great American songbook, French, German, Irish, tangos, and Strauss waltzes. The Apple Strudel Gang is an authentic German polka band with Mark Hamza as the leader. We play German polkas, waltzes, tangos, and marches that encourage the audience to get up and dance. The band consists of Mark on accordion, Sheila on vocals, with clarinet, trombone, and trumpet added as needed. They perform songs from the Rheingold orchestra songbook from pre World War II. The band has played many Oktoberfest celebrations in NJ, PA, NY, and Washington DC. Mark and Sheila also have a duo of German music for smaller venues. CelticMoonband is an Irish/Celtic band with Mark Hamza on accordion and Sheila Stratton-Hamza on vocals and bodhran. We entertain with Irish traditional and Irish American favorites for pubs, family gatherings, weddings, wedding rehearsals, festivals, and life celebrations (wakes). We add instruments like fiddle and drums when needed.
