About Mark P. Lopez


Mr. Lopez has been exposed to Jazz all his adult life, more intensly from the late passing of his father Paul who was not a musician nor famous but just a Dad who was a Korean War Veteran. All the while he has enlightened and just storied him on the scene from his own love of jazz from dances, concerts and experiences of his Father's knowledge of so many great artists and types of Jazz people that Mark has become to know of today. While Mr. Lopez's father was still alive he often went home to tell his Dad the concerts and involement he was enjoying listening to Jazz., Mark had even went as far as managing his first band called INVINO Jazz Quintet from So.Ca. which is still together today, in fact Mark had invoked an acclaimed vocalist Ann Mack who shadows the voice of Sarah Vaughn to the group recently. Although INVINO has been very affluent instrumentally, Mark decided to make this move and everyone seems to fit. Since Mark's involvment into the scene of Jazz as a listener and the quest to know more driven by his Late father Paul, he has since gone on to manage several bands today from Jazz, Latin Jazz, R&B, Reggae and even some tribute bands. Mark has been devoted on seeking the most pleasant venues and exposure for bands such as The Temecula Valley International Jazz Festival, Sierra Madre Wine & Walk Festival, The Millenium Biltmore Hotel, Rudy's Baja Grill & Cocktails, countless chartiy events, red carpet events & art exhibits, The Golden Spur Restaurant, Cuban Pete's Caribbean Grill, and soon to be appearing @1st. & Hope Downtown Supper Club.
