Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush
Uma grande banda canadense, assim como Triumph, Rush, Neil Young. Mahogany Rush é uma banda de Rock liderada pelo guitarrista Frank Marino. a banda atingiu seu auge na década de 70, onde se apresentou no California Jam II, dividindo o palco e as atenções com outras bandas de peso, tais como Aerosmith, Ted Nugent e Heart. Um sonzaço, com uma guitarra que lembra muito Jimi Hendrix, a principal influência de Frank Marino.
Uma breve historinha em inglês: " Mahogany Rush was moderately popular in the 1970s. Their records charted in Billboard, and they toured extensively, playing such venues as California Jam II (1978). Toward the end of the 1970s, the band began to be billed as "Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush." Not much later, Mahogany Rush split up and in the early 1980s Marino released two solo albums on CBS. The band reformed and continued to perform throughout the 1980s and 1990s. In 1993, Marino retired from the music industry. Marino returned in 2001, inspired in part by a fansite, www.mahoganyrush.com: "I always knew we had fans, I just didn't know I'd find half a million of them on the Web," he said in an interview with Guitar Player in 2005. He released Eye of the Storm, and went on tour again, playing more improvisational shows. Frank is still active, recording and touring under his own name. He has also been involved in blues recordings with other artists as well, playing on tribute albums to Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan. (Wikipedia).
