Mark Ludwig played his first gig at age 15. Now, almost 35 years later, he has thousands of shows under his belt, Nation Wide! There was no need for additional music schooling after high school for Mark, he developed his love for music from the very moment he played his first gig and knew that it was the career path for him. From that point forward, he focused on fine tuning his talent and getting as much experience as he could by playing different events. From coast to coast, Mark has performed in almost every capacity, from intimate coffee houses, to 15,000 seat stadiums! In 1997, he joined Atlantic Recording Artists Solution A.D., with the Modern Rock single “Fearless”. Touring extensively with the band, Mark gained an entirely new level of experience, playing shows and festivals across the country, including such prestigious venues as CBGB’s, and The Beacon Theatre in New York City.
Originally a trio, Mark, his wife, and band member Kurt performed under the name of the “Fuzzy Bunny Slippers.” They started as a cover band playing throughout the region, securing a weekly spot at Ocean City, Maryland’s Seacrets waterfront dining location. Over time they grew in band members and went from a trio to a full band consisting of nine talented members in 2006. The bands main focus is to make sure their crowd rocks out and has a great time during their performance.
Through his extensive experience, Mark has learned the key to success as a performer… ALWAYS keep the party going. Resident of Center City Philadelphia for the last 11 years, Mark has established himself into the extensive music scene, with performances in most of the Ballrooms and Event Centers in the area. Mark Ludwig, band leader of Back2Life, has assembled some of the finest musicians in the area to ensure that every song is played to its perfection. Mark and Back2Life are sure to impress at any event that they play and keep the dance floors packed!
