Mark Cummings was born and raised in Southern California and has been playing bass professionally for over 30 years. He studied music theory at Riverside Community College and specializes in most genres including rock, pop, reggae, country and blues and is an original member of California ska legends The Skeletones.
He has toured internationally and has shared the stage with such luminaries as The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fishbone, The English Beat, Incubus, Smash Mouth, No Doubt, Sublime, Blink-182, Jefferson Starship and Steel Pulse to name a few. His discography includes fourteen full-length studio albums and numerous compilations. His playing has been featured on several international cable shows including MTV’s Viva La Bam, The Hills, Parental Control and Punk’d.
Mark is currently providing the low end and high harmonies for several groups and teaches both privately and at The Music And Arts Centers of Corona and Riverside, CA.
Learning should be fun! Yes theory and technical ability are important but if you aren't enjoying yourself why bother? My goal is to get you where you want to be quickly.
35 Years touring and recording experience.
