Mark & the Escorts
Van Nuys, California
February 21 , 2009
This is the first time my teenage band,
Mark & the Escorts, performed together since 1966!
We did only songs that we did back then, including the songs
we recorded for GNP Crescendo Records in 1965, "Dance
With Me" and "Get Your Baby." We sounded
good and had a great time. Unfortunately, the
audio on the videos below is somewhat distorted because the
video camera was too close to the band. Despite this
problem, the visuals are pretty good and you can still get
a good idea of the music and the performance of these songs,
as well as the atmosphere of the event.
Guerrero (lead vocal, guitar, keyboard), Ernie Hernandez (drums),
