4TELL

A trumpet player, singer, songwriter, guitar, and spoken word artist out of Longmont, Colorado. 4Tell, a.k.a, Mark Wridt, is a former Astronomy Teacher and long time Engineer and has been performing music for over 20 years.  Mark has been a Toastmaster (ACB,CL) for over 5 years, competing in and winning public speaking contests, and is where he honed his speaking, speech crafting, and storytelling abilities.  Mark has performed ceremonial music in 11 weddings, the National Anthem for many sporting events (and even a prison opening) which include a full length pre-season NFL Half time show with a marching band as a soloist, and currently is performing solo, with 4TELL & The Aces, and with  Defunkt Railroad around the front range of Colorado. Mark became '4TELL' as a performer in 2016 after a few creative friends insisted on the stage name. 4TELL's solo act is highlighted below:
