Two old friends from Wayne State University are reunited by a chance collision in CyberSpace. The rest is history...
The Tequila Mockingbirds are comprised of Mark Fernandez and Tim Spoehr.

Mark plays keyboards, keytar, sax, and flute as well as handling half the vocal duties.
Mark has been the leader and musical director of several popular area bands over the years, such as The Chance, Channel Six, Party of 3, and Rustbelt Revival.
Tim is originally from Flat Rock and currently resides with his wife in Trenton.
After graduating from Wayne State, Tim was a the Technical Director of Monroe Community College's Meyer Theater for several years before retiring.
Tim plays acoustic and electric guitar and provides the other half of the vocal duties.
