Mark Allen Koch / Bio

MARK ALLEN KOCH IS OUT OF THE JAMES JAMERSON, DUCK DUNN SCHOOL OF BASS PLAYING. UTILIZING VARIOUS OTHER INFLUENCES HE CREATED HIS OWN STYLE OF PLAYING. HIS MAIN GOAL IS TO PLAY WHAT FITS BEST WITH THE SONG, NOT NECESSARILY WHAT SHOWCASES HIS ABILITIES ON BASS. SOMETIMES LESS IS MORE IN MUSIC, KNOWING WHEN TO HOLD BACK & WHEN TO LET GO CAN MAKE OR BREAK A GREAT PIECE OF MUSIC. HE HAS WORKED FROM NEW YORK TO HAWAII AND SHANGHAI TO MADRID IN DUMPS AND STADIUMS (AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN INCLUDING FACTORIES, BUT THAT IS ANOTHER STORY). MARK HAS PLAYED BASS FOR A NUMBER OF ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME MEMBERS OVER THE YEARS. AT TIMES MARK PLAYED LEAD GUITAR WHEN ADEQUATE GUITAR PLAYERS WERE NOT AVAILABLE TO WORK. THAT BEING SAID, HIS FIRST LOVE IS THE BASS. HE HAS YEARS OF EXPERIENCE PLAYING IN FRONT OF LARGE CROWDS. THE MUSIC HE ENJOYS PLAYING MOST IS HOUSEROCKIN' BLUES, BUT HE CAN GET INTO ANYTHING THAT IS PERFORMED SKILLFULLY. RELOCATING TO NASHVILLE HAS RENEWED HIS DESIRE TO ONCE AGAIN PLAY MUSIC FOR A LIVING (NO MORE DAY JOBS). MARK IS CURRENTLY WORKING AS THE BASS PLAYER FOR BABY BLUES & THE NO ATTITUDE BAND. ALL THE MUSIC ON THIS SITE IS FROM LIVE PERFORMANCES. Mark Allen Koch was Formerly with: International Recording Artist Van Preston, Moxie, The Bullet Band, Shaken Smith Blues Band, The Virginians, Front Page News, Rock Bottom Band, Sierra, Cottonmouth, The Banned, and The Bucklin Blues Band to name a few.
