Mark Haze at Cafe Roux
April 30, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pmR100
Mark was born in Cape Town & at age 7 started playing the guitar after being inspired by watching his uncle play. His love of music inspired him to learn not just the guitar but also the drums, trumpet & harmonica & while at school he played in several different school bands.
In 2010, Mark went to the US & while at Disney world, after some encouragement from his wife, he entered ‘The American Idol Experience’ a shortened day-long version of the television show, which he won. Winning this competition entitled him to a Golden Ticket, which meant he was able to enter American Idol & go directly to perform for the judges. He was unable to return to the States for the Idols audition, however winning the competition at Disney World gave him the confidence to enter South African Idols where he was runner up.
After Idols, Mark received a recording contract from Universal Records. To date, he has performed alongside some of the countries top artists & some of the world’s greatest musicians, including Rock icons Bon Jovi & his career continues to go from strength to strength.
