Marc is opening his 58th season performing with a Midday Show at the Gendron Franco Cente in Lewiston on February 15 and also announces he has left The Connie Francis Tribute Show. He has rescheduled his show due to a snowstorm on February 7.
"It's a great way to kick off another year of shows in such a beautiful venue and we'll have a good program ready. I am also going to pay tribute to our band Lvoe, Inc. on our 50th anniversary this year by performing two songs written for the band...one by band co-founder and lifelong friend, Mark Swett...and the other by myself. Looking forward to this for sure!".
Marc is no longer performing with the Connie Francis Tribute Show. "Louis and I had some creative differences over some aspects of the show and it was decided he should move ahead without me" Marc said. "It was a great 3 year run and I certainly enjoyed the performances and the music. I now look forward to hopefully celebrating two 50 year Anniversaries this year and my solo performances. I wish him every success with the show in the future".
Marc is celebrating his Golden Jubilee with Ludwig and Zildjian...playing his original drumkit and Zildjian Ride Cymbals...from 1968...in 2018. His Vintage Webpage is being updated and he's looking forward to being recognized by both companies for his long-standing ties with them. "If you told me in 1968 I'd still be playing...let alone with the same kit...I'd likely never have believed it". We will keep you posted on these developments as well.
Marc's original group...Love, Inc...Maine's most popular and successful Pop Band from 1968-1971 is celebrating 50 years this year. There are discussions at this time about doing something in public to commemorate the anniversary. Again...keep it here for later information.
Marc will be lining up some solo shows this year also. Check our Performance Page for the latest details.
