Mark Berube | Fire In The Blue
Grooving rhythms, strong melodies, and vivid songwriting by this modern-day bard
Chris met Mark in a jazz combo class, where they learned how to play Chick Corea’s Spain together. Mark played Chris his original material and the rest is history. They played few shows together (including a particularly memorable outing at Vancouver’s Starfish Room). After adding drummer Ryan Davis (and plenty of rehearsal), they had the perfect platform to share Mark’s memorable melodies and literary genius.
Mark Berube: voice, guitars, piano; Chris Trinidad: voice, bass guitar; Ryan Davis: drum set
