With 20 CD’s currently in the marketplace, Mark & Gretch Hladish, with Jo Hodgins are known music professionals in the Walworth County area. Performing together as a vocal trio in a unique cabaret-styled musical experience since 2010, their music is the backbone of Rosewood in Delavan, Wisconsin entertaining theater goers from 7-10 states. Mark, the group’s producer, plays 17 different instruments, and has recorded every note of their repertoire spanning 1930’s to current day. This melding of incredible harmonies on such a wide variety of music is a crowd pleaser, every time.
In 2005, Mark and Gretch Hladish first blended their musical influences and talents, playing a mix of pop, classic rock and country. They were learning how to entertain together. Mark says, “now it seems so natural to arrange and produce music together – roles are more defined and we each do our part to build the performances and recordings.” Audiences knew them by name and it seemed pretentious to call themselves anything other than Mark & Gretch!
They have crafted a unique musical performance and one-of-a-kind audience experience. They have become skilled at creating amazing interactive performance soundtracks. These tracks allow the group to perform live vocals and play instruments accompanied by the sound of an entire backup band. They faithfully recreate the sound of the original hit recordings. Their versatile repertoire and extraordinary vocal style has become their trademark, performing over 200 shows each year.
