Rockabilly ain't supposed to be nice music - its a bastard begot of hillbilly simplicity and
r & b vulgarity...
Leaving a trail of grease stained pillows, broken hearts and busted amps in their wake The Greasemarks have been doin' desperate 50's rockabilly raw & right since 2007. Three guys, all named Mark - a bassist pullin' double duty, kickin' a snare while beatin' out the rhythm, a guitarist not thinkin' much beyond keepin' the chords live, & a young, drunk, explosion of nervous energy up front, barely able to hold the acoustic guitar in his hand as he chokes out the words.
The Greasemarks have cut their teeth playing all over Southern Ontario, Quebec and the Northern US. From the Shadow - Guelph's filthiest dive bar - to backyards, basements, weddings, clubs & festival stages, making friends where ever they go. With hundreds of shows, and a couple successful tours, under their belt highlights include twice playing Montreal’s Red, Hot & Blue Rockabilly festival, Halifax’s East Coast Rockabilly Riot, The Maritime Shakedown Rockabilly Festival, Toronto's East End Rockabilly Riot, surviving nights at Mike's Honky Tonk & Guelph, Hamilton & Toronto residencies.
