The Mark Christopher Band Works on New Music
LA Band Works on New Material
Los Angeles, California – May 19, 2017 – The city of Los Angeles has come to be known as a transplant locale. A place where one moves to make moves. The men of The Mark Christopher Band stray from the pack because to them, this city if simply home. All three come from a varying set of influences that come together to create a sound that fully reflects the struggle of what it means to strive and survive a place where everyone is trying to make something out of nothing.
Raised in Los Angeles, all three men know the highs of lows their hometown can offer. Leading man Mark Christopher picked up his first guitar at 15 after watching his jazz pianist father for years. He wanted in on the action and with that went from playing in high school to graduating to local bars and clubs. The same can be said of bassist Philip Friedland, who also worked hard making a name for himself in the local club scene. For Steve Roybal, he’s played on one of the biggest stages LA has to offer. A member of the Los Angeles Junior. Philharmonic, this drummer brings his style alive by incorporating technique he’s picked up from the likes of his influences that include Louis Bellson, Gene Krupa, and Buddy Rich.
Local boys and a Philharmonic member, they came together over a shared love of blues, hard rock and that a soulful LA street sound that very few are in tune with. Until now that is with The Mark Christopher Band. They’ve put all their eclectic styles into one and emerged with their own take on music, one that has served them well playing everywhere in Los Angeles from the infamous Viper Room to Molly Malone’s down on Fairfax. They want to continue to build up their local fan base in LA and throughout Orange County as well, all while putting out their third album in the coming months.

Los Angeles isn’t the easiest place to call home. Rent is astronomical, traffic strains the mind and with the amount of people trying to make their mark - it’s damn near impossible to stand out. The Mark Christopher Band is one of the many are one of the many acts in the City of Angels who know this is all too true. Their fusion of blues, jazz and hard rock is an authentic reflection of  the LA scene the struggles in becoming successful in our great city.
Comprised of three talented men born and raised in Los Angeles with various skillsets, The Mark Christopher Band is led the man who gave his name to the trio. Mark Christopher was born with music in his blood. Influenced by his jazz pianist father, he picked up the guitar at 15-years-old and has yet to put it down. 
Finding a band full of people actually from LA is a feat, but it happened and The Mark Christopher Band came to be. Soon after they released their debut in 2002. Today they are a few albums deep and working on their fourth album that’s due out by the end of 2017. In between working on the new record and its release, the band plans on playing throughout their native Southern California from LA to San Diego and back again to strengthen their name on their homebase before taking the show on the road.
