Mark Whittington

Funk / Jazz / Blues


Mark Whittington has been "serving the song" for more than 40 years. He began playing the bass in Berkeley and played in bands around the Bay Area, Portland and Monterey -- including Blue with Steve Snider. A dozen years ago, Mark followed a day job to the Neon Desert, where he managed coverage of the Las Vegas entertainment scene for the daily newspapers. He moonlighted as the bassist for the West Coast Travelers, playing everywhere from casino lounges to biker bars. Mark moved back to the Monterey Peninsula in June.
