Mark Williams

Mark Williams has over 40 years' professional experience as a guitarist, teacher, recording artist and composer, and it's demonstrated on every performance. Career highlights include live radio broadcasts from Los Angeles and concert performances with the Mansfield Symphony Orchestra, as well as extensive work in night clubs, for fashion shows and wedding ceremonies throughout Ohio. Mark currently appears regularly at the Buckeye Lake Yacht Club and the John Glenn International Airport.

Mark performs as a soloist on the 7 string electric-acoustic guitar custom built by legendary guitar maker J Thomas Davis. The tones of the instrument extend well into the bass range. Booking Mark for your event is like hiring both a guitarist and a bass player for the price of one! Be sure to check out the music videos of BREEZIN, AND I LOVE HER and Michelle on this site to hear Mark on this remarkable and unique musical instrument!
