Mark Hamza is the accordion player and Mark, the B3 organist, plays a modified Hammond organ that allows him to play all the bass lines with his feet. Mark has performed in New Orleans as well and is really great on Zydeco accordion and has composed his own song called "Zydeco Cheesecake" Our singer, Sheila Stratton-Hamza, spotlights the great female Blues and Rock singers from the 60's to the present. She has a unique and huge sound. The SheilaMark Band is able to play different musical styles, so we can satisfy a diverse audience.
