Mark Mullins (b. 1962) is an American trombonist, arranger and composer.
Mullins is a founding member, in 1998, of Bonerama, a brass funk rock band from New Orleans, La. He is also active with the Mark Mullins Band.
Mark was a pioneer using electronic effects with his horn in a way previously used only by guitarists to enhance his lead lines as a guitarist would. He’s also been a major force composing arrangements for multiple trombones in the groundbreaking band he co-founded, Bonerama, which tackles everything from original compositions to Led Zeppelin, Beatles and Black Sabbath. He is often given credit for raising the trombone to lead instrument status in the modern funk, rock and jam band music scenes.
Mark has become a top call when major record and tour producers look to add a dynamic New Orleans flavor to their albums and in recent years he has served as horn arranger/producer for Blackbird Presents series of concerts featuring Don Was as musical director. Broadcast credits include HBO’s Comic Relief (musical director), Lynyrd Skynyrd: One More For The Fans - Blackbird Presents (AXS), Mavis Staples: I’ll Take You There - Blackbird Presents (AXS), The Late Show, Tonight Show, Grammy Awards, and many more.
