Born in Canonsburg Pennsylvania ( also the birthplace of his great-uncle, Perry Como ), and raised in southern Florida ( the birthplace of mosquitoes and humidity ), Mark Miale began his musical  journey playing drums in his junior high school band.
With the realization that Ringo Starr didn't get the hot girls, he soon began playing the guitar, bass guitar, banjo, and mandolin.
After years of toiling away in smoke-filled south Florida bars, in 2004 he made a move north, to the greener pastures of Micanopy , where he now happily toils away in smoke-free north Florida bars.
