Mark Bono

Mark Bono


Since the year 2000, Mark Bono has performed thousands of gigs and is a real presence in the Brisbane covers scene performing at everything from chilled out background gigs, to kicked-back afternoon sessions, weddings, engagements and other private parties and functions, right through to the party scenes of the pubs and clubs and anywhere in between that’s keen for a good sing-a-long.Loving nothing more than playing to an interactive crowd he always encourages people to request songs, give birthday shout outs and even joining him on stage to play the tambourine!

Over the years Mark has fronted and played in many bands and since 2009 he has performed solely under the name MARK BONO, either solo or as a duo.

Keeping everything live, Mark achieves a fat, full sound with a rich mix of vocal harmonies and guitar tones to give the impression that there is more likely a small group performing rather than just one guy. And when performing as a duo, he adds a drummer to the mix catering to a wide variety of audiences from relaxed diners through to dancing party animals and everything in between.

MARK BONO is available solo or duo for Hotels, Taverns, Clubs, Pubs, Private/Corporate functions and events.
