Old Man Markley is a punk & bluegrass band based out of Los Angeles, CA. Founded in 2007, the band consisted of John Carey (lead vocals, guitar), Annie DeTemple (Autoharp, Vocals), Jeff Fuller (Drums), Joey Garibaldi (Bass, Vocals), Ryan Markley (Washboard), John Rosen (Banjo, Vocals), and Katie Weed (Fiddle). The band was signed to Fat Wreck Chords in 2010, but has largely been inactive since 2015.


The band was formed in late 2007 in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles. They were named after washboard player (and former drummer for Angel City Outcasts) Ryan Markley, and played their first show in 2008 at a bar in Pasadena called the Old Towne Pub. The show was attended by an at-capacity crowd and the bar sold out of beer. The band's debut album "Guts n' Teeth" released on Fat Wreck Chords on January 18, 2011. The band's first EP was a 7" released on Fat Wreck Chords with the A-Side being "For Better, For Worse" and the B-Side was a cover of the Screeching Weasel song "The Science Of Myth".
