Mark Huckstep has been heavily involved in the NZ music industry since 1984 and is widely recognised as having one of the finest male rock voices around. Mark’s talent on his acoustic and electric guitar, as well as his outstanding vocals, has seen him perform both as a solo artiste and with other musicians at venues and special events. His talent has seen him appear on stages throughout NZ and overseas, including the UK, where Mark performed regularly for three years as both an original artiste and with his covers band.
Mark’s return from London saw him playing bass guitar and singing for popular dance bands on the NZ pub and club circuit. The first original band Tyga Tyga, made it to 2nd place in the local battle of the bands. This band eventually morphed into the top cover band “KICK”; Mark was the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the band. He applied many tricks of the trade to this musical unit –most notably, and uniquely, ‘hot-mixing tracks’ live so there were no gaps at all between songs, often for a whole set. This quickly became a feature of Kick’s performances. Kick played the high-end club and event circuit and once again Mark was traveling to perform, around NZ and offshore.
Building on Kick’s success, Mark moved onto his own band, Huckstep & Co which continued to dominate the club and pub scene for an additional seven years. After a brief stint at home to look after his newborn babies Mark joined cover band Rhythm & Groove, which became the first resident band for all of the Cock’n’Bull bars around Auckland.
Returning to the live music scene - as well as recording jingles for multiple radio and television ads - got his name out there again. Mark was hand-picked for the Hauraki Band – a unique show band performing hits from the popular Hauraki radio station at venues and events such as Big Boys Toys, Beach N Boat, and v8 Supercars etc.
Mark has a very sensible and corporate day job – his alter ego comes out to play on stage! Mark is currently offers a range of musical acts to suit any venue, event and budget, from solo performances to a fully live band.
