Mark and the Pentones
Well known for their killer live performances, the Pentones combine blues, rock, and funk to create a tasty gumbo of New Orleans-influenced sound that's uniquely their own. The Pentones are Mark Penton (guitar and vocals), Thomas C. McDonald (bass guitar and vocals), and Eddie Christmas (drums and percussion). Their NEW live CD, We Only Drink at Work, is now available.
Here's what Where Y'at Magazine had to say:
"Penton doesn’t get a lot of ink or air time but it would not be an exaggeration to rate him among the top 10 lead guitarists in a city that has no shortage of them.... Penton can be counted on to give a stellar performance. Anyone who can make his axe sing like the late, great Duane Allman gets my vote.... in addition to being an extraordinarily gifted musician and vocalist, Penton is also an accomplished songwriter."
