N.T.O. pulls together a hundred years worth of musical experiences into one coheasive unit. Being it playing in a club or on a large stage they always deliver a solid performance that has them invited back over and over. Constantly creating new music, the band is all about playing to the crowd at hand and making sure that everyone is having a good time..
Joe Marks, gathered together a group of very experienced and seasoned musicians from the Little Rock area who enjoy playing original home spun music. Joe's musical roots come from playing coffee houses and writing and singing highly lyrical songs, poetry if you will, set to music. He fell in love with the blues in 1998 and has been true to that musical format ever since.
Phil Link, lead guitarist for the band toured from Florida to New York back in the eighties playing everything from disco to Heavy Metal. His guitar playing style gives N.T.O. that extra kick in the pants and lights the fires of audiences everywhere. Phil always strives to take the music to the next level.
Mark Bolls has been playing drums since he was old enough to hold a stick. Nick named "Spider" for his ability to be all over the drum kit all at one time he is the ultimate time keeper. Mark has played with bands in Japan and did a two year tour in Europe. When he returned from that tour a car accident nearly cut his drum playing days short but he has recovered and come back with a vengence.
Gary James Moore has played bass with more Honky Tonk bands then you can shake a stick at. Coming from Austin Texas he has had the opportuninty to play the Late Great S.R.V. and also with his Brother Jimmy. Gary is a walking encyclopedia of Bass licks. You name it, he has probably played it on some stage, somewhere.
Given the varied backgrounds of all the members is what makes N.T.O. so unique. From folk to rock to country to disco to blues the band puts it all together in one high energy show that is NTO Blues.
