The Band Founder Biography
My Name is Mark Mckenzie, the Bass Player and Founder of ifrolix Band. I started practicing Bass in 1994 in Negril Jamaica.
As a Child growing up in Montego Bay Jamaica, I was exposed to a lot of Sound Systems. I use to be captivated by the sound of the Bass Lines in every Song.
In the decade of the 90s, as a Tourist area, Negril was steaming with Reggae Bands almost every Night of the Week.
I hung out and learnt from some of the best Reggae Musicians in the World. I continued my craft in New York City where the ifrolix Band was formed.
I have done many live music projects throughout the years with several other Musicians, Producers, Promoters and Singers. This page features some of the wonderful moments that we have captured.
We were hired as the backing Band for this Event in Port St. Lucie Florida.
The Band rehearsed and performed over forty five Songs for Reggae great Singers like Everton Blender, Admiral Tibet, Colin Roach, Izana, Jahmela Blender the Daughter of Everton Blender, Shanty Plus and Hopeton Lindo.
It was a good turn out of Audiences and a Stellar performance from the Musicians and Singers. Nicky Blaze also did a great job as the Show Host and MC.
I grew up in Jamaica listening to most of these Singers and it was an honor to be able to perform with them on the same stage.
It was the Jamaican Dancehall Segment and these Ladies were out of their Seats Dancing to Monsoon and the ifrolix Band
It was a five Band Audition for the Resident Band position at Shuckers Waterfront Bar & Grill in North Miami.
Your guess is right, we won the position of Resident Band to perform every Thursday Evening.
The ifrolix Band is well known by a large number of Singers. Every Week we gave a different Singer the opportunity to Sing at the Shuckers Gig, to add a different Flavor of Entertainment.
While we were at Shuckers we meet with Ana Ortega of Radio Miami, a Latin American Radio & TV Station. Mark Mckenzie the Bass Player and Founder of the Band was called in for a Live Exclusive Interview.
We performed for Francisco and his Friends at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Miami.
It was a Corporate Event that earned us a Five Star Review.
Francisco requested a special play list of Classic Reggae Songs to be performed by the Band and DJ during the Band breaks.
All his requests were fulfilled plus a few Latin American Songs from Jose our Cuban Guitarist.
Jack Radics is one of Jamaica's most Prominent Singers with many well known hit Songs.
The New York City Ensemble of ifrolix Band was Guitarist Lee Archibald, Keyboardist Bo-Pee, Drummer Fitzroy, Bassist Mark and Singer Elijah Rock.
Bo-Pee worked with Jack Radics for several years since the 90s in Negril Jamaica. They Toured together in Europe and other parts of the world as Jack's Keyboard player and Music Director.
On the release of the Singer's new Album "The Watershed" in 2016, we were called in to do the Music Video for his hit single "Love Is".
A Wedding Gig we did in Massapequa New York
This Ensemble of ifrolix Band was formed in 2016. I meet Keyboardist Bo-Pee in Baldwin New York at another Gig that he was playing. I told him that the Band was missing a Keyboard Player and he immediately accepted the position.
The Drummer Fitzroy Frank worked together with the Guitarist Lee Archibald in the Resident Band on a Caribbean Cruise Line for over ten Years.
Chris is a Singer that they knew from a previous Band that they use to play in. We all did a few Gigs together successfully including the Christmas Party at a private House in Elizabeth New Jersey.

Chuck Turner is one of Jamaica's original singers and is a personal friend of mine. We put together this show.
