Hey Guys! I'm Kreig Marks, (don't pay attention to the misspelling on my profile, LOL. It's really me here.)
I'm the founder/publisher of Tru Rock Revival Magazine and the co-founder and Creative Consultant for this place, Bandivious. I'm also the proud father of 4 great kids and the husband to an incredible woman.
Tru Rock began as an idea written on a scrap piece of paper at dinner with my wife about 4 years ago and 1 year later it became a reality. Now, almost 3 years later, we've been fortunate to have interviewed so many very talented bands along with some true rock legends. My most memorable ones are my interviews with Sammy Hagar, Lou Gramm and Peter Frampton (who has become a good friend) and my most cherished was an impromptu interview I did with Brad Delp, the late great lead vocalist of the band Boston. That interview helped launch Tru Rock Revival Magazine and was the catalyst to our now 1.1 million readers every month.
The idea for Bandivious came about 2 years ago. Being from Florida, I remember the days when most of the venues here were rock n roll havens for original bands and cover bands and many were the spring boards for some pretty big Florida bands I'm sure you've all heard of, (Creed, Shinedown, Marilyn Manson, The Allman Brothers, Tom Petty, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Limp Bizkit, Matchbox 20). When I came up with the idea for Bandivious, originally it was to be a website to promote local rock bands in South Florida. But, with so many incredible rock bands all over the country that haven't gotten the exposure or break they deserve, I decided that Bandivious should be global. And, that's what brought us here today and all of you. I hope you all enjoy the newly renovated Bandivious. It was built for all of you because you all have incredible music that deserves to be heard everywhere.
Let's get this party started!
