Recently Mark Performed at the event It's Worth Spending a Night With Janis Joplin, written and directed by Randy Johnson, and received this rave review from the Toronto Star!

“The eight-piece band, led by musical director Mark Berman and including a three-piece horn section, is taut, disciplined and stylistically adept, whether they’re thundering through Piece of My Heart or toning it down for Q. Smith’s poignant rendering of Nina Simone’s Little Girl Blue.”
