Thanks for Stopping By!
I guess in this day and age the personal website is a necessary evil, so here is mine. Humor me as I attempt to write about all things (or maybe just some things ) Mark Letalien (in third person, of course!)
Mark Letalien has been playing drums for the better part of thirty years. Over the course of that time he has performed throughout the United States and in Europe. A native of New England, Mark moved to Los Angeles in his late teens to study with such noted drum instructors as Joe Porcaro, Ralph Humphrey, Steve Houghton, and Jim Chapin, and graduated with high honors from Musician’s Institute (MI).
Playing highlights include performing with Grammy winner Shelby Lynne for her London performances, being a founding member of and performing for four years with Colonel Bruce Hampton and the Quark Alliance, being a founding member of the World music group Insonnia, and touring with renown Beatles tribute band Abbey Road Live.
As of late Mark has been performing with several Atlanta based bands, specifically Sweetwater Junction and the Bombastic3. He is also the first call drum sub for many local churches/music ministry directors.
