Mark Hopkins at WLOY Coffeehouse 9/6

Saturday, September 1st, 2018 by Tara Howell

Post by Lindsey Zapata

I am pleased to announce that Mark Hopkins will be returning to campus to perform for our first Thursday night Coffeehouse at Starbucks! Mark is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist, and though he sometime will appear with the rest of his band, Mark Hopkins & the Pretty War, we will be having him as a solo artist this week. Influenced by some of the greats, such as, Paul McCartney and Jimi Hendrix. Hopkins specializes in rock, pop and soul. As stated by him, one of his biggest interest is “making good music so you can shake your…” well, you can imagine the rest of that sentence.

If you want something to do this Thursday night (September 6th) make sure to stop by Starbucks from 8-10pm. And before you come, you can listen to some of his hits at http://www.markhopkinsmusic.com/. See you there!
