About Mark van Mourik Blues

In 1995, Mark met Roy Roberts, a Bluesman from the United States.  Being a fantastic singer and performer, Roy was hitting the right note at the right time.  When acquainted, Mark and Roy jammed together at the local Blues Cafe.  Impressed with the young man’s talent, Roy invited him to come to the U.S. to play and record with him and other affiliated artists. Together they toured across the United States and Europe, where Roy often introduced Mark as his adopted son. Mark has had the privilege of playing music with artists such as; Roy Roberts, Taj Mahal, Barbara Weathers, Floyd Miles (featuring Gregg Allman), Skeeter Brandon, Priscilla Price, Chick Willis, Sandra Hall, D.C. Bellamy, Tom Browne, William Bell, Willy “Big Eyes” Smith, Yahzarah, B. B. King’s AllStar Band, Howard Tate and many other fine musicians.

Being in the U.S. and working with so many fantastic musicians exposed Mark to the roots of music styles like Blues, Jazz, R&B, Soul and Funk, which he has incorporated into his own style. Mark has recorded his own albums entitled Passages and Dutch Guy Playing the Blues, which have had airplay across the globe.  Mark currently resides in the Netherlands, where he has started his own Blues band.  Please be sure to check him out for yourself,  he plays “the right note at the right time”.  You’ll be glad you did!
