Mark Hart              

Biography: I was born on November 5, 1958 in Parkersburg, WV, and was raised in Columbus, OH. I finally made my way  to St. Augustine, Florida in the summer  of ’95. That same year I put my years of service industry work on the back burner and began to follow my dream as an entertainer, of which I had 20 years experience playing guitar and singing—both with a band and as a soloist. (GOD HELP ME ON THIS ADVENTURE, PLEASE!) After arriving in St. Augustine, I immediately went on a hunt for a nightclub that I thought would be a good fit for my style of music, which was 60s and 70s music, with alot of Jimmy Buffet thrown in for good measure. I found that club at the TradeWinds. With its location right on the bay of St. Augustine, tropical atmosphere and lighted stage, I thought it would be perfect. The mix of patrons was wonderful, from local, tourists, to others just passing through.  I hung around awhile, letting people know that I was interested in playing and getting to know them. One afternoon in the spring of 1996, Troy Locke asked me to play a happy hour show at the Tradewinds. To my happy surprise, the crowd enjoyed that performance, and I have been playing happy hour ever since,  Saturday through Wednesday from 5-8. I now have my own CD out, entitled “It’s My Turn”, featuring all original music. Hope you enjoy it! 

CDs can be purchased at showtimes or conveniently
