Show Info

Named for its front man and lead singer, Dallas Marks evolved into a household name since making its debut nearly five years ago. The music scene is taking notice of the quintet hailing from the hills of Allegheny. Invoking a sound drawn from a wide array of musical genres, the band includes a little bit of everything. The group is a self-styled Top 40 Country act and the grit, twang and tasty guitar licks of such are evident, but a proficient display of both classic and southern rock tunes is managed without sacrificing integrity or fidelity. Their live shows, consisting of both cover and original tunes, are responsible for Dallas Marks acquiring quite the geographically diverse fan base. Lead guitarist Bill Miller drives the song with stellar lead guitar riffs and chops, fluently articulating the framework of the composition. Charlie McVay - Charlie's pedal steel performance is an intricate addition to the unique style of the band. Justin Brown contributes ample bass, dropping thunderous but appropriately placed bombs which would make Thor himself proud. A competent Bill Gendron pounds the skins with a fervor of rhythmic intensity. Rounding it all out is Marks with his polished vocalistic musings. In an era overpopulated with lead singers, Marks is like a breath of fresh air. The end result of this assemblage of fine musicians is a sublime musical soup concoction, a bricolage of success. Dallas Marks warmed the crowds for national acts such as Sammy Kershaw, Joe Nichols, Randy Travis, Trace Adkins, Charlie Daniels, Billy Currington and Phil Vassar. The band was featured twice on Froggy Radio Station's "Hometown Country," and performed at venues and events such as The Pepsi Roadhouse, Three Rivers Regatta, Big Butler Fair and The Post Gazette Pavilion. Dallas Marks recently teamed up with Nashville songwriters to work on recording an original CD which will be released nationwide sometime next year. Dallas Marks' star is on the rise
