Cold Duck

Dance Band

In 1969, trumpet player/vocalist Jose Cuadra assembled a group of musicians to form an eight-piece band known today as Cold Duck. Before long, Cold Duck was performing its way into the Southern California music scene, establishing itself as the premier dance band. This successful stint as L.A.'s number one dance band led to a First Place finish in 1971 at the East Los Angeles College "Battle of the Bands". After a hiatus from 1973 to 1978, Cold Duck revived itself in its current form seen today.Cold Duck continues its tradition of excellent musicianship and groovin' rhythms. To this date, Cold Duck has enjoyed continued success with appearances from San Diego to Santa Barbara, locations such as Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Magic Mountain, NBC, MGM and ABC Studios. The list of credentials of individual band members include extensive experience with a wide array of celebrities. With this solid experienced musicianship, it should come as no surprise that Cold Duck is renowned for being one of the most versatile bands in existence. Since Cold Duck's inception over three decades ago, an underlying philosophy has been directly responsible for the band's continued success to this day: "Give the people what they want to hear and have a good time delivering it!" Happily entertained audiences throughout Southern California agree that this band enjoys performing! What better way to turn any occasion into an event to remember by partying with Cold Duck.

Mark Easterday is a country cover singer in Southern California playing fun, upbeat music you currently hear on country radio. He covers great bands and musicians: Kenny Chesney, Cole Swindell, Luke Bryan, Justin Moore, Eric Church, Jason Aldean and many more.

The band also loves to put high energy set lists together to keep the crowd dancing, often grouping 2-3 songs together from the same artist in a “country block.” Country fans at their shows love this unique approach. The band calls line dances and teaches a few to enhance guests' experiences.
