From listening to Mark’s Midnight Carnival Show, it’s hard to believe that this Indie Rock band has only been together for a couple of years. Formed in September 2009, Mark’s Midnight Carnival Show has played over 400 shows, traveled 80,000 miles, met countless fans and friends, and put out two live radio albums. Anticipating the release of their first studio album in 2011, MMCS looks forward to sharing their popular live songs like “Dancing” and “The Moon Song ” in a studio-polished form. Comprised of Mark Bush, vocals/bass/guitar, Scott Bein, lead guitar, and Gavin Straub, percussion, this regional touring band continually gains momentum and grows their fan base from their home in Southern Colorado to Kansas City, Santa Fe and beyond.


“I also fell in love with Mark’s Midnight Carnival Show and leader Mark Bush’s soft, melodic and overall lovely voice (I’m not sure he would want it described that way, however)” 

Denise Chambers, The Denver Post

“But like I said, very well done. It's like Sublime meets Wild Cherry meets... something else. I don't know. But it's good.”

James Campbell, the Blacksheep  Audience Member

“I love the new work! The band brought a tasty, new element to your already savory songwriting”

Jefferson Fox, Singer Songwriter

“Mark's Midnight Carnival (the band)Together for only a few months now, they've been gigging tirelessly throughout Colorado They've earned a reputation for mellow, "easy on the ears" acoustic rock, and I just thought you might like their rich and bold, indie-o-coustic power-pop.”

Adam Leech, The Independent

“At its essence, a song is nothing more than a melody with a musical backing. Local singer songwriter Mark Bush, aka Mark’s Midnight Carnival Show, captures this essence on this self-titled record.”

John Pompei, Beyond The Fold

“Several weeks ago, Pueblo West resident Mark Bush posted a note on Craig’s List, looking for other musicians to form a band with. His one-man show became a three-man band, and the trio is finding quick success.”

KRISTEN M. WHITE , Pueblo West Veiw

“Mark is a songwriter with a passion for performing. This Indie-Aggressive Acoustic Rocker attacks his music head on, layering intensely powerful vocals with a percussive acoustic sound rare and often unseen in the modern singer-songwriter. Now lead singer of Mark's Midnight Carnival Show!”
