About the Band

We call ourselves NEXT OF KIN because the only people who frequent our gigs are family members. 

So welcome to the family!

We are a southern New Hampshire three piece band that plays an eclectic potpourri of music styles from classic rock, folk, country to southern rock and more. We have been playing in the granite state for the last six years, having fun and bringing the audience right along with us.  We are not only band mates, but friends who thoroughly enjoy playing together, which we hope comes through in our performances. 

In 2014, NEXT OF KIN had the pleasure of opening for Grammy nominated Confederate Railroad in Rochester, New Hampshire

With his unique style, Mark puts 

his own spin on the most well known tunes.   From CCR to the Grateful Dead to the Rolling Stones and the Marshall Tucker Band, Mark’s gift for bringing the audience right into the song makes for a fun filled and entertaining experience.

To say that being a drummer is in his blood is an understatement.  A drummer his entire life, Denny put down his sticks for a period of time until he met his lovely wife who encouraged him to play once again. Since then, Denny has played throughout the southern New Hampshire area with multiple bands including the Johnny Morin Band, specializing in French and American music, the famous Reverend Jerry Paquette and his Kan-Tu Blues Band, Talon, Cold Comfort, The Time Travelers and many others. His talent and enthusiasm for playing is contagious and always a pleasure to watch.  Denny never passes up a chance to play at an open mic night or to fill in for a drummer who can’t make a gig.

Bruce has been playing bass guitar since age 17 and has performed with numerous bands from Boston to Concord, NH.  While in the military, Bruce met up with songwriter Jeff Brown and did some session work for him in the San Francisco Bay area.  He enjoys playing rock, blues, jazz and funk.  Through his studies at the Portsmouth Music and Arts Center (PMAC), he performed with T. J. Wheeler at the Portsmouth Blues Festivals 20th anniversary show.  He has studied Jazz at PMAC with Chel Illingworth and Matt Langley directors of Jazz study and got to play with Ryan Parker, Les Harris Jr. and Jose Duque at the school.  From the cellar to the garage or out live at a club or private party, he truly enjoys making music with other musicians.
