I am very fortunate to have remarkable musicians to accompany me on stage. I am pleased to invite you to a night of music with the Mark J. Nyvlt Band at Pressed (750 Gladstone Ave.) on November 11, 8-11 p.m. In the band, we have Robert Libbey, Ken Kanwisher, Zeek Gross, and Alvaro De Minaya. Special guests: Andrew Mah, Robin Mallory, and Mike McCormick (who will end the evening with a group jam).
Mark J. Nyvlt is a Canadian singer-song writer. Born in Ottawa, but traveled extensively around the world. Coming from an international family, he was exposed to the pulse of international matters at an early age. Schooled at Canterbury High School for the Arts (Classical guitar), Nyvlt was fortunate enough to witness a rich array of talent in all the fields of the Arts. Sadly, Nyvlt put the guitar down for a very long 15 years while pursuing his studies and his Ph.D. in Ancient Greek Philosophy at Boston University. He now compensates for this loss of time. Now, a permanent professor of Ancient Greek Philosophy at the Dominican University (Ottawa), he continues to integrate philosophical themes into his songs, along with the political and quotidian events of life. He performs regularly in Ottawa and collaborates with the very talented community of musicians in Ottawa.
