Mark 'Deke' McGee started playing Saxophone at the age of Thirteen, after hearing Bill Doggetts 'Honky Tonk' played by the legendary Clifford Scott. He began studying the sound and the stylings of all the great Swing and Rhythm n' Blues horn men of that era.

He began working as a sideman with bands all over Europe and North America at many Jazz and Blues Festivals. This saw him recording, supporting and sharing the stage with names such as Buddy Guy, Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh, Big Joe Turner's Memphis Blues Caravan, Hamish Stuart, Bill Wyman and his Rhythm Kings, Phil Guy, Lazy Lester, Sugar Blue, Zoot Money, Otis Grand, George Melly, The Fratellis, Band Of Friends, Martin Stephenson, The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Big George and the Business, The Nimmo Brothers, The Cobramatics, The Beatstalkers and many more.

As well as being in demand for live dates and recording sessions, Deke is currently out front leading his own band. This Quartet which consists of Saxophone, Piano, Bass and Drums, play a mixture of Blues, Swing, Gospel and Soul...with the vintage sound of all the great Rhythm n' Blues Horn Men of the 40s and 50s...and with the same idea in mind, this band aim's the music at the audiences feet.
