Scheduled as the final featured act at the 2012 Ellwood City Arts, Crafts, and Food Festival, the Dallas Marks Band will take the stage and add a little twang to the festival from 8:30 to 10 p.m.
Named after its lead singer, the Dallas Marks Band began nearly five years ago. The group from Pittsburgh is a self-styled Top 40 Country act, but also plays classic and southern rock tunes, and their shows consist of both cover and original songs.
Dallas Marks has performed at national acts such as Sammy Kershaw, Joe Nichols, Randy Travis, Trace Adkins, Charlie Daniels, Billy Currington and Phil Vassar.
The band was also featured twice on Froggy Radio Station’s “Hometown Country,” and performed at venues and events such as The Pepsi Roadhouse, Three Rivers Regatta, Big Butler Fair, and The Post Gazette Pavilion.
Dallas Marks recently teamed up with Nashville songwriters to work on recording an original CD which will be released nationwide sometime in 2013.
Lead guitarist Bill Miller drives the song with stellar lead guitar riffs and chops, fluently articulating the framework of the composition.
Bob “Crafty” Crafton – Bob’s pedal steel performance is an intricate addition to the unique style of the band.
Justin Brown contributes ample bass, dropping thunderous but appropriately placed bombs which would make Thor himself proud.
The country group will close out the festival’s entertainment prior to the fireworks display at 10:15 p.m.
