Rick Springfield Rehearses at Markee Music with Mark Begelman
Rick Springfield has had an amazingly successful career as a rock singer and guitarist. He's had five Top Ten hits including "Love Somebody," "I've Done Everything for You" and the chart-topping Grammy-winning classic "Jessie's Girl." He's also brought many of his stories of life on the road and working on the hit soap opera General Hospital in his memoir, Late, Late at Night. He continues to perform music and still releases albums to this day and has particularly needed to work in rehearsal for many of his performances.
When Rick Springfield comes into the Miami area for a show or to simply jam out, he comes to
Mark Begelman one of the owners of Markee Music. Begelman formed Markee Music as a quality place for music rehearsals, lessons and songwriting clinics and has particularly hosted a large variety of different musicians from all walks of life. Springfield is just one of many people who have come out to perform here.
Springfield's live touring band has changed over the years and they are always looking to learn many of his songs ranging from his biggest hits to his newest stuff to some deep tracks. Springfield brings his band members to the recording studio to help them record demos of them performing songs so they can see how well they are working on them and what needs to be done to improve things. Mark Begelman has staffed the recording studio with a full professional-grade mixing board just like what's used in the album process.
The rehearsal studios have plenty of space for all of Springfield's band members and for Springfield himself. Everyone can practice their instruments thanks to the guitar, keyboard and bass amps used here plus the effective drum support system used here. All the tools are organized well enough to make it so everyone who comes out here can practice their work and get things ready as soon as possible.
These rooms are also available seven days a week. This is great for bands that tend to tour quite a bit and have to be on the road.
It's a great touring and music life for Rick Springfield. Mark Begelman and his friends at Markee Music right outside Fort Lauderdale are all there to help make it easier for him and the rest of his band to get things ready for all sorts of shows. The studio and the rehearsal rooms here are all useful for everyone looking to find ways to get on the same page when performing music and getting it all ready.
