...MARC CELEBRATES GOLDEN JUBILEE WITH LUDWIG AND ZILDJIAN IN 2018...
Marc opened his 58th performing season with a great show at the Gendron Franco Center in Lewiston on February 15. The show had to be postponed a week due to snowy weather.
Wih a crowd of 150 people, Marc gave a dazzling performance on vocals and piano. His Roger Williams Tribute song...Autumn Leaves...received a sustained ovation. "It's my way of honoring Roger who I met in person in 1962 and had such a big influence on me during my early years learning piano. It's fun to play...techinically challanging...and always a crowd pleaser" he said. "The Franco Center is a beautiful Venue and I really enjoy performing here. The audience is nice and friendly and I always get a warm reception here...it's really appreciated".
Marc will be perfoming at the Odd Fellows Home in Auburn, Maine on May 24, 2018...ironically the 50th Anniversary of the Debut of "The New Love, Inc." at St. Anthony's Hall (formally St. Hyacinth) in Westbrook, Maine on May 24, 1968. That magical night in 1968 was the beginning of an incredible 3 year run for the band which set many "firsts" in Maine music history...including charting 3 Singles...Recording the 1st Pop LP in Maine...and 3 TV appearances on WCSH TV in Portland, Maine, in 1969 and 1970...among others.
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 has been 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".
"I have a drum and piano recital coming up at the end of June...a private performance...and you know I'll be doing something on the drums to commemorate this event".
Stay tuned for updates.
