Mark Easterday & the 40-Oz. Band
About this pro
We play the best of today's top country hits but while many bands simply perform songs like a copy, we put our own personality into them--so the audience still hears the music they want to hear but with a different twist, played by top notch musicians who can help judge the flow and vibe of an event and create the right sound. Not everything in life can be planned! Playing for crowds that respond to us. We've noticed that even people who don't listen to a whole lot of country music enjoy our shows, and country music fans like hearing all of their favorites, fresh off the radio!

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Typically we start at $1,000 for a two-hour event. The price increases depending on the total time of the event, how far we have to travel and how much specific material needs to be learned. For those on a budget, our four-piece option can be a good fit, having done many successful performances with that format.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Growing up in San Bernardino, I was always a big country music fan. I've also always loved being on stage and over the last five years, I've evolved from doing duo shows which were fun but low key to having a kickin' band behind me that makes everyone dance. Country music hasn't always been popular but when people hear it they love it, and I love to bring it to 'em!
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?If you are budgeting for an event, especially if you have a long time frame to plan for it, don't short change yourself when it comes to music. Even if Mark Easterday & the 40-Oz. Band isn't the right fit for your event, make sure you budget enough to get a band you REALLY want and don't just settle for low-hanging fruit. Remember as a kid when you wanted that new video game or sneakers and you had to save up your money for it? Yeah, you could have bought a knock off for cheaper but it wouldn't have been the same, right?
