Von Bizmark are a 4 piece rock band based in Dublin.
The band formed in Kilkenny in early 2007 (3 of the members hail from Kilkenny, 1 from Wexford). A handful of songs from a previous incarnation of the band were used as a platform to get started but the band immediately set about crafting new material with a distinct sound.
Influences vary greatly among the 4 members, The Roses, Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Oasis and others are used as reference points but Von Bizmark don't base their sound on any one particular band. Each song has its own identity but at the same time all the songs have a definite Von Bizmark 'vibe'.
At the moment the band are working hard on new songs and gigging regularly. Plans are afoot to release new material in the near future.
Tune in again tomorrow!!!
