mark harris & Portsmouth studio
In 1998 Mark moved to Berwick-upon-Tweed and was a resident entertainer/compere for British Holidays at Haggerston Castle, it was here that Mark fell in love with performing!
In 1999 Mark changed site where he was to become a resident entertainer at Marton Mere Holiday Village in Blackpool.
After a long season in Blackpool Mark was offered a lead part in Pantomine in Sevenoaks where he was to play Wishy Washy at the Stag Theatre. After this Mark was approached by Tony Johnson Productions where he was to become a lead singer in a touring cabaret show ‘TIME MACHINE’. Mark worked with some experienced vocalists in this show and eventially became an out and out front man.
The next show formed in 2000 and Mark was 1 of 4 lead vocalists in the Motown group GUYZ, this show was top of the bill across the UK for Bourne Leisure, Haven, Butlins and also ventured into Hotels and Social clubs throughout the North East of England. GUYZ even had the honour of supporting chart topping 'Blue'.
In 2004 Mark went back into TIME MACHINE but this time was the front man along with 3 other lead vocalists and 4 dancers. This show was a musical journey from the 1920’s right through to the present day.
In 2005 Tony Johnson formed GUYZ & DOLLZ, a male female Motown act for the Holiday circuit and Hotels. Mark was one of the Lead vocalists in this polished harmony act.
It was during these years that Mark spent £1000’s on studio time, poster design, business cards and backing tracks.
Those of you who still work in the industry will know that these prices are climbing and climbing every year.
This is how Portsmouth Studio was born.
Mark decided that if he trained himself up to do all of the above and gradually buy all the required equipment, he could do everything much cheaper.
Mark has a full time job as an IT Manager supporting various sites around Europe so anything to do with the studio has now become a hobby. This being the case Mark can afford to supply his services at a low cost.
