Bio

Markham Hill was born under the wing of two legendary Fayetteville bands - Confunkshun Junction and Grampaw's Goodtime Fandango. When late-night jam sessions at their practice space evolved into a full set of songs, Markham Hill was invited to open for another band at George's Majestic Lounge on April 8, 2004.

With a turnout almost three times that of the feature band, Markham Hill offered a a breath of fresh air to listeners searching for riff-heavy guitar rock. For the past two years Markham Hill has been playing in Fayetteville - at George's an average of once a month, J.R.'s Lightbulb Club, the Copper Bar, Jose's, and the Gypsy.

Memorable shows include a headlining spot on the main stage at the 2005 Bikes, Blues and Barbecue, two-act nights at George's with local favorites Speakeasy and Wildwood Bluegrass, and shows at music festivals in and around Northwest Arkansas.

In April of 2005 Markham Hill won the Northwest Arkansas Music Award for best rock band.

Markham Hill music is influenced by: black sabbath, blue cheer, steppenwolf, the kinks, the beatles, rush, miles davis, led zeppelin, the doors, the band, sublime, nirvana, frank zappa, zz top, cheech and chong, howlin' wolf, grand funk railroad, smashing pumpkins, allman brothers band, jimi hendrix, widespread panic, george gershwin, bill withers, cake, the grateful dead, peter green, blind melon, the paper hearts, the meters, lucero, rage against the machine, the animals, pantera, beastie boys, neil young, traffic, mountain, muddy waters, and gov't mule.

With a repertoire of almost 100 songs, setlists can vary immensely, depending on the audience listening. Markham Hill appeals to a wide crowd - from twenty-something jamband fans to middle aged bikers.
