Marko and the Bruisers was started in 2008 by mark martin in Spencer Massachusetts. Above the Chinese food restaurant "Chef Sau" the very beginnings of this band started with ray mundel on bass, shaun danforth on guitar, and greg leger on various things... after a little while everyone went their own way in 2009 and mark was left alone. It stayed a solo project with mark playing all the instruments... until 2016 when the full band formed with Paul lacroix on lead guitar, Kyle Donnelly on bass, and nick latour on drums. Mark martin is still singer/ guitarist as well as primary songwriter. In april kyle (bass) left the band and paul moved over and took over the bass. They started recording a full length album on may 24th and are still playing tons of shows.
