Mark DeRose Music
“Thoughtful and provocative, laden with metaphors of hope and celebration for life. It’s the stuff that makes feel good music feel so good”.- Patrick Kirchner, The Fly Magazine
DeRose has opened for national touring artists Rusted Root, Gin Blossoms, Michelle Branch, Edwin McCain, Blues Traveler, The Sugar Hill Gang and Josh Kelley. As well he perform as part of an NFL halftime show for the Baltimore Ravens and his music has been featured for use on daytime television.
Along with his band, The Dreadnought Brigade, DeRose’s music calls upon his love for rootsy blue-eyed soul and classic rock of the late 60s and 70s. The band brings high-energy performances of DeRose’s upbeat, feel good music to stages across the tri-state region. However, they’re just as happy to leave the amps at home and bring the same positive energy to acoustic settings, listening rooms, and house concerts. For fans of Van Morrison, Counting Crows, and The Band.
