Having played in bands for years, Arcades leader David Hoskins recognized that there was something missing in the local Houston club scene - and that void could be filled by a band that plays the songs that people want to hear - songs that you can dance to and sing along with - played by top musicians and conveyed with a personal and genuine connection to their audience. David set out to make this happen in August of 2013. David met keyboardist Michael O'Brien through another group. He and Michael began by auditioning drummers. Mark Wreyford was #6 of 7 to audition that day. His keen sense of tempo and amazing ability to play the song - and not just a beat - was evident from the very first song, and Mark gladly took the gig. Our lead singer, Morgan Highland, joined shortly thereafter and she is amazing. Our newest member, Ray Babauta is one of the finest players around and he adds a whole new dimension to The Arcades.
The Arcades are all seasoned players with many years of experience, covering a wide variety of music for all occasions. Please contact us for your next event.
