The Tequila Mockingbirds are comprised of Mark Hernandez and Tim Spoehr. Mark is a Westland resident and retired band director from Romulus Community Shools. To help the “Birds” achieve their full band sound, he creates all their backing tracks and arrangements in his home studio. All backing tracks are performed by Mark from scratch using no sampling, prefab drum tracks or karaoke tricks. Mark plays keyboards, keytar, sax and flute as well as handling half of the vocal duties. Mark has been leader and musical director of several popular area bands over the years such as, The Chance, Channel Six, Party of 3 and Rustbelt Revival.
Tim is originally from Flat Rock and currently resides with his wife in Trenton. After graduating from Wayne Stae, Tim was the Technical Director of Monroe Community College’s Meyer Theater for several years before retiring. Tim plays acoustic and electric guitars and provides the other half of the vocal duties. He was a long time member of one of the Downriver Area’s premier all occasion bands, Lavender.
The Mockingbirds play a wide variety of classic and current pop, rock and Motown hits. Their large repertoire and years of experience enable them to tailor the music to fit any mood. From a laid back listening evening to a rocking bar party.
