Originally from Indianapolis , Indiana Mark Roberts has lived in Santa Barbara , California long enough to call it home. The Mark Roberts Band roots/rock sound consists of drums, bass, guitar, and Hammond B-3 & blues piano.
The opening song,“Road Kill”says it all about being smitten by a woman on a motorcycle. This CD, released in Oct. 2006, reflects life’s situations of love and the rigors and joy of playing live music. Mark touches on faith and gambling in other tunes. Even though there are some outside players here, the CD mostly reflects the work of the touring members. Here are Mark Murray on drums, Theo Jennings on bass guitar, and Chris Rokusek on keyboards. Mark played the electric and acoustic guitars.
Mark’s influences are Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, U2, The Rolling Stones, and Robbie Robertson to name a few.
The Mark Roberts Band plays up and down the Southern California coast with Santa Barbara as it’s base.
