Mark Wheeler

Mark Wheeler

Saxophone

Music has always been a part of Mark's life. He played saxophone through elementary and high school, then studied as a classical saxophonist. It wasn't until his later years of college that jazz, R & B, pop and blues began to take hold. Since then, he has played in countries ranging from Ireland to Cuba to China and many others in between. Mark has recorded, produced and arranged for orchestra and studio projects, but is happiest inside a small combo on the backside of a deep groove.
