Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1949, Mark Colby comes from a musical background, as his father was a professional musician (drummer) who played with Benny Goodman for a time in the ‘40’s. Upon moving to Miami as a teen, he had the opportunity to play shows with popular acts, including Tony Bennett, Sonny and Cher, Bill Cosby, Ann-Margret and Sammy Davis, Jr., with seasoned musicians.  He was for many years the youngest guy on the bandstand, all the while pursuing his desire to play all styles of jazz. In the ensuing years, he has played and in some cases toured with such varied luminaries as Frank Sinatra, Jaco Pastorius, Mose Allison, Joe Williams and Charlie Haden.
