Musical Performances

Mark Alan

The inheritance of voice and place makes for a powerful union. Though acoustic in nature, Mark’s music is strangely expansive – it’s original in sound, soulful and groove oriented. His presence is warm and unpretentious. Poetic, yet simply profound, here’s someone faithfully doing what he’s supposed to do. He performs with that conviction night-in and night-out. When you see him, when you hear him at work, you’ll understand why friends are talking – about ‘the real’ Mark Alan.

Ivie-Meziere TrioMark Alan performs at the Chowder Cook-Off in Lincoln City, OR

The Ivie-Meziere band performs electric and acoustic blues with vocals and smooth jazz instrumentals. The band performs as an acoustic trio and an all electric band with horns! The trio was formed to supply the perfect live music experience where ambiance is important. The trio has performed at brewpubs, wineries, and other prominent venues and private events throughout the region.
