Biography

Mark Bell was born in San Francisco. Raised in Daly City, ten minutes outside of San Francisco. At the age of twenty he moved to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and four months later moved to Lakeland Florida were he now resides.
Before he knew what drums or even music was, he was in love with it. He can truly say music was his fist love. While in his mother’s womb, she was in a gospel choir standing right next to the musicians, she told him as soon as the music began to play, he would begin to kick.
At the age of 8, he played in church for the youth choir and children’s choir, learning from the music directors and mentors the meaning of drum playing and the power of music. He knew he wanted to make music/drum playing as a career when he was in third year in high school. He began to focus on Drummers like, Dave Weckle, Vinnie Colaiuta, Dennis Chambers to the more and upcoming Drummers like Tony Royster Jr., Chris Coleman Aaron Spears and the list goes on.
When he moved to Florida he was introduced to more world Drummers such as “El Negro,” Giovanni, and many more. He was offered a scholarship to Southeastern University to play with the Tour Bands and was faithfully committed to the group. Played on many recordings and projects.
