Mark first made a name for himself in the DJ world in 1980 when he began a twenty-two year stint as a weekly fixture on two of Boston’s most popular non-commercial radio stations: MIT affiliated WMBR and Boston College affiliated WZBC. An avid record collector, Mark found his true calling as one of the weekly hosts of the Late Risers Club (1982-1987) one of the USA’s first program devoted to punk, indie rock and it’s various manifestations. In 1987, he moved over to WZBC as their weeknight programming offered more creative avenues to explore new music in non-rock forms. By 1997, his program DISC ERROR had evolved into a weekly live DJ format which, until 2002 featured live mix sets by a vast selection of DJs from Boston and beyond.
In 2000, Mark accomplished two lifelong dreams: he moved to NYC and he began to pursue his full-time career as a DJ, focusing on club work, weddings, fashion shows and events. Mark continued to return to Boston on a weekly basis for his radio show at WZBC through the end of 2001, and has kept his deep ties to his hometown. Since 2000, he has been DJing in numerous clubs and lounges in Manhattan and is frequently joined by many guest DJs from around the globe. Besides working the “wheels of steel” in Boston and NYC, Mark has performed nationally and internationally with gigs in Amsterdam, Berlin and Munich.
In 2006, Mark was hand picked to join high-end retailer Bergdorf Goodman to DJ at their inaugural music department founded by Felix Cutillo. After three years, Mark is proud to announce Volume Events mobile DJ service, expanding from the Metro New York Area to the Northeast corridor from Portland to Philadelphia.
