Mark Alan Noone is a Berklee educated, award winning American musician, song writer and record producer, born and raised in Washington, D.C. Perhaps best known as the lead singer and frontman of The Slickee Boys, Noone has remained active in music until this day. Slickee Boys reunions continued through the years culminating in a final show at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. Their 81st and last appearance was on July 3, 2011. Mark Noone currently holds the all time record for playing the 9:30 Club - both F street and the current location. ( Please see the band page for current or upcoming gigs.) Mark is also an avid collector of all things tiki, vintage clothing and housewares as well as musical instruments. Every now and then a relic from the Slickee Boys' vault pops up, too. (Check out his Etsy shop.) He also does musical instrument repairs. ( See Guitar First Aid)
Mark is on more recordings than we can count. He is currently working on projects with King Soul and The Yachtsmen, as well as a new solo effort. Slickee Boys, Hula Monsters and Rhodes Tavern Troubadours' music are all available via the 'net. He's penned and published over 50 songs including "When I Go to the Beach," "Life of the Party," ( both MTV videos) "Gotta Tell Me Why," and "This Party Sucks." (both featured in films)
