Music and ranching are in the Mobley brothers’ blood. Growing up on the family ranch near Shaniko, Mark and Ron Mobley began cutting their musical teeth at the respective ages of 12 and 10 by playing in The Sundowners band with their parents, Vern and Pat Mobley.
Based out of Prineville in those days, Countryfied was a trio consisting of Mark, Ron and friend Charlie Walker. The lineup has changed some since those long-ago days spent playing mostly covers at old Central Oregon bars. Still going strong 30 years later. Today, Countryfied is a five-piece with Mark on rhythm guitar, trumpet and lead vocals; Ron on drums; John Hite on keyboards and acoustic guitar; Yancey Fall on bass; and Tim Fenderson – Guitars and Vocals.
When playing live, Mark said, “My goal is to make everybody smile out there … and have a good time. That’s what music is all about.”
