The Mark Wells Quartet Plays acoustic RnB in the tradition of Ray Charles, Nellie Lutcher, and Louis Jordan. It’s jazz influenced, with the intent on down-home feel-goodness, and a “please feel free to grab someone and dance”! The band will tip their hats to any music that fills your heart and moves your feet. The group features Mark Wells on Vocals, Piano and Guitar, Jared Wofford on Guitar, George Knott on Standup Bass and Bass Sax, and Stephen Coffman on Drums.
Mark Wells has been making music in the triangle for years in too many genres and settings to mention. He was recently a featured vocalist with the North Carolina Jazz Repertory Orchestra and will be singing with that fine institution on their September show. Mark is a founding member of Peter Lamb and the Wolves, which has been voted “Best Jazz Band” by the Independent Weekly for 2 years running. As a sideman, Mark plays regularly for local greats Al Strong, Shana Tucker, and Brevan Hampden
