Voice and Vino 2021


Mark Maxwell

In Kentuckiana, the Maxwell name is synonymous with music. Mark literally grew up in his parents’ music store, Mom’s Music in Jeffersonville. He learned extensively about the music business, specifically about retail, education, and performance. When Mark had the opportunity to purchase that music store 10 years ago, he jumped at the opportunity. After several years, he rebranded it to Maxwell’s House of Music.

Mark prides himself on making music-related dreams come true for elementary school kids to octogenarians alike. Mark is a true music advocate in the community, and even at the state level. He and his team are involved with a music advocacy group pushing to include more music education in our schools. He understands the value of music in all our lives!

Another hat Mark wears proudly is that as lead singer for The Louisville Crashers. He and the band play approximately 100 shows every year regionally. Mark’s talent and energy on stage are contagious  to all who attend, proving just some of the benefits of music! He has also performed with various groups throughout the years, sharing the stage with artists such as Cheap Trick, Eddie Money, Travis Tritt, and Blake Shelton. 

Why did Mark want to be a part of ‘Voice & Vino’? Mark says, “Our community relies on LifeSpan Resources to enrich lives and help bridge the gap for so many people right here in our own neighborhoods. This is such a worthy cause to which I’m happy to add my VOICE!”

Mark’s favorite time of the day is spent with his wife, Angie, their kids and family, “I’m quite possibly the luckiest man on Earth!”
