Mark Lowe has been playing guitar for about 30 years. He thought Ace Frehly from KISS was the coolest thing ever and wanted to be a rock star. He started off as a teen performing in bands, playing mostly originals at first then slowly fell into cover bands in college at SUNY Oneonta where he studied the music industry. Mark grew up in Orange County, NY, then moved to Myrtle Beach, SC after college for about 5 years where he played in cover bands before moving back to New York. He is a founding member of Hillbilly Parade.
