The music of Ruby Topaz can display raw emotional energy one minute and polish the next. It exhibits a progressive blend of pop, rock, blues and fusion. Their influences run the gamut from The Beatles, The Monkees, and Hermans Hermits to Queen, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Alice Cooper, David Bowie, Frank Zappa, Jeff Beck, and The Mahavishnu Orchestra. Mark Bram, and his alter ego/band Ruby Topaz, has a long and colorful history in the Rhode Island music scene. In the 80's, their single, Why/The Sack, had some international success; and was played on the radio in England, France, Germany, Switzerland, and Belgium. Live, Mark plays lead guitar, lead vocals and keyboards, along with the line up of Ruby Topaz (Steve D'Andrea on drums and Chris Hallam on Bass), but in the studio Mark handles everything (vocals, guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards, as well as the engineering), with Steve playing drums most of the tracks. Mark has produced five CDs.
