Mark Hughes –  Solo Acoustic Performer – Live act with DJ hire

Melbourne based singer/guitarist Mark Hughes has been entertaining audiences at weddings, parties, pubs, clubs and private functions both as a solo artist and in duos and bands for over twenty years.

An accomplished and engaging performer, Mark plays a mix of tasty covers and crowd favourites, putting his own infectious spin on every song. A loop pedal enables Mark to layer guitar parts, which not only gives his performance a bigger sound than one would expect from a solo performer, but also showcases both his rhythm and lead guitar skills.

Years of honing his lead guitar playing in bands and at his own solo gigs means that Mark is equally at home playing beautiful, chilled instrumental background music for events such as wedding ceremonies and more relaxed occasions, as well as great party tunes for audiences who are out to have a great night dancing and singing along.

Mark has played at most major live music venues in Melbourne as well as at the Frankston Guitar Festival, and has had notable supports for artists such as Mark Seymour, Ross Wilson and Daryl Braithwaite along the way. He has also worked with some of Australia’s top musicians including members of Vince Jones’ band, and has had repeated airplay of his original songs on Network 10.

Mark is able to perform as a solo artist, or in a duo or full band format if required, and comes equipped with his own high quality Bose PA and background music for in-between sets.

Mark loves to play and brings an upbeat, friendly vibe to every occasion, taking pride in being down to earth and easy to work with.

With years of experience under his belt as a performer and musician, Mark knows how to make sure everyone has a great time at his gigs.
