Kuntsi is a native of Sault Ste. Marie who has played all over Canada from coast to coast for over 20 years; both as a solo performer and with a host of touring bands, including: The Greenhouse Effect, Ernie’s Coffee Shop, The Festive Eddies, Push Button Automatic, and Dobb & Dumela.
He has been described as a powerful vocalist, accomplished bassist, and solid guitarist with a wide-ranging and eclectic mix of originals and covers, Mark is at ease shifting from swing to soul to rock and the blues; through surprisingly 'straight' reads of early punk songs, and campy country takes on Led Zepplin.
"Sometimes zany, sometimes goofy, but always passionate, compelling and entertaining."-Pique Magazine

Mark has also been involved as a bassist for the past
six years with Southern Ontario pagan pop-rockers Another 1000 Miles
