HopMonk Tavern Novato Presents: Walking Mirrors (Mark & Brett’s Birthday Benefit Bash)

Formed in 2019 by singer songwriter Mark Nelson and lead guitarist/producer Craig Bartock (Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Inductee band HEART), the band has assembled some of the Best Rock n’ Roll All-Stars in the Bay Area. Thirty-year Joe Satriani drummer Jeff Campitelli (and ranked the 50th greatest drummer of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine), decade long Boston (yes that Boston!) bass player/ background vocalist David Sikes, and shredding guitarist Aidan Nelson (Deer Hollow, Berklee College of Music) round out this group of outstanding musicians.

Delivering a classic but insanely original brand of reflective rock n roll, this Rock n’ Roll Super Group is led by Craig’s ripping guitar riffs and overall musical direction, and Marks carefully crafted story-telling and raw vocals.

The band’s live sets include carefully selected songs from their thirty-piece original catalogue, and a host of synergistic cover songs that just make you feel the way you were meant to feel. “Awesome.” The music is heavily influenced by the pure energy of the Rolling Stones and storytelling and approachability of Tom Petty.

Over the last two years, the band’s “movement” has taken the North Bay live rock n’ roll music scene by storm. After tearing down the house at all the major Marin venues (Sweetwater Music Hall, Hopmonk Novato and sold-out Rancho Nicasio) multiple times, the band is expanding it’s live performances across the Bay Area.

Walking Mirrors released their second studio album “Nothing Left for Gray” at the end of 2022,three years after cutting their self-titled album back in 2019. Both albums are certain to reflectively “move you.”

For the band, everything we do comes back to community connection and support…what can we do, as artists and musicians, to make the lives of others just a little bit better, and brighter.

In service to our mission, all WM ticket proceeds are donated to local not for profits. We have raised over fifty thousand dollars over a year and half period. To date, beneficiaries have included Town of San Anselmo’s Live on the Avenue (our largest donation to date), Bridge the Gap CollegePrep, Sweetwater Music Hall, Nicasio Volunteer Fire Department, Mark Day School, and Redwood Credit Union Community Fund (Raised over $10,000 for this one event).
