OXYMORONS


Mark Geovjian and Jeff Schroeder comprise the duo “Oxymorons”; friends that have played together well over 25 years, emphasizing fun with the crowd. This duo performs a large variety of tunes based in nostalgic folk rock of the 60's and 70's, but rounded out with songs from all eras up through the present. 


They have performed in a variety of venues, wedding receptions, parties, corporate events, and festivals throughout Michigan. One of their most memorable gigs was in Galway, Ireland where they performed for four days at a church sponsored picnic for the public at the promenade there on the bay (photo on left). 


THE OXYMORONS BAND


In 2013, they added drummer and friend of Jeff’s, Mark Nester, to form “The Oxymorons Band”  Jeff and Mark performed in the duo “Schroeder and Nester” back in the early 80‘s. 


Then, in 2015, we added Jim Frontier on bass, guitar, and vocals.  Jim is a good friend of Mark Geovjian’s from back in his high school days.  Throughout high school, college and years following (over 25 years), Jim and Mark comprised the duo and band “Spinnaker”, from in and around East Lansing, Michigan.
