Bamblusion: a rock band fusion of jazz and blues is the soul project of Western Massachusetts natives, lead singer/guitarist Mark Perry, drummer/vocals Paul Dawicki, and bassist/vocals George Czeremcha. The trio formed in the early 90‟s splitting up years later when Perry moved to California to further accelerate his music career.
Mark Perry grew up with a guitar in hand. At the age of ten, he started practicing under the influence of Jimi Hendrix, Yngwie Malmsteen and Uli Roth. At the age of eighteen Perry knew the only option for his future was to create music. Perry began to explore his potential in San Francisco, later moving to LA when his funk metal band MEDIEM started to take off. Bands like Hoobastank and POD would open for the band. Selling out shows at LA hot spots like The Whisky and The Roxy Theatre. The band also opened for Guns and Roses’ lead guitarist Slash (Slashes Snake Pit), Bonaham and Tony McAlpine. MEDIEM also played at Oz Fest in 2000. Despite the local success in the metal/ hard rock scene, Perry is most recognized for a country song he co-wrote with friend Chris Ellis, “One more Beer” landing him two LA music Awards in 2009 and again in 2010 for Best CD. After over two decades apart Perry, Dawicki and Czeremcha reunited when Perry moved back from California in 2010. They immediately formed Mark Perry‟s Bamblusion. Releasing Two CD‟s to date. The newest self-titled “Bamblusion” was written by Perry and produced by Jim Fogarty. The CD reflects mainly upon Perry‟s past two years and the significant changes that happened when he moved back to the east coast. Nearly thirty years of playing, song writing and recording are expressed through nine relatable songs, making their second self-titled CD more of a love child.
