You’ll soon be seeing a lot more of Schroon’s own music man Mark Piper. Mark is heading up a new group, “Marking Time”. Congrats, Mark!
“We can be a duo, trio or quartet, acoustic or electric, depending on size of venue and customer needs. I’, on vox and Guitar, Blair Sutherland harmony vox and upright and electric basses, Mike Suftin on Cajon or other percussion. We will at times bring in special guests to round out our sound and be a quartet.
We perform a mix of Rockabilly, Western Swing and Tasty Originals that’s sure to get you out of your chair. We call it “Toe Tappin' Music”.
And they have a busy schedule, including a gig (as a trio) this Saturday (August 22) at the Paradox Brewery from 1 pm – 5 pm, Witherbee’s Carriage House on September 5th (as a quartet) from 7 pm – 10 pm and (as a duo) at the Essex County Suicide Prevention Awareness Day (Tuesday, September 8) from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. They'll be on the lawn at the Court House in Elizabethtown.
The lads also play in Saratoga Springs every other Sunday at Paddy Duggan’s. And of course he heads up Witherbee’s Open Electrified Open Mic Night every Thursday night. Sign-up is at 6:30pm upstairs in the loft.
