Awesome music to really make the event

5 stars - Marcus are Highly Recommended
booked Marcus for their event in Oxfordshire June 2022

“Marcus was awesome - would absolutely recommend him for any event. He played at my 40th birthday party and the music was fantastic. Everyone mentioned how good he was. He coordinated before to select which songs we wanted and communicated really well throughout. Delivered two brilliant sets. Thank you for a great performance.”

5 stars - Marcus are Highly Recommended
booked Marcus for their Wedding in Kent July 2021

“Marcus is incredibly talented. He performed a beautiful acoustic set on our wedding day and also played during the ceremony. We had so many wonderful comments from our guests on his performance and it really did make our day even more special. I even looked over to see my uncle in tears as he played Hey Jude. Would highly recommend Marcus to anyone looking for a musician for an event or wedding.”


Fantastic performance for our wedding

5 stars - Marcus are Highly Recommended
booked Marcus for their Wedding in London May 2021

“Marcus’s performance at our wedding was brilliant. We could not have wished for better. Prior to our wedding we spoke with Marcus via zoom and discussed song choices and vibe we wanted. Because of Covid restrictions our wedding Reception venue would not allow him to use a microphone however the sound was awesome and actually he did not need it. Very professional and friendly gentleman who is extremely gifted. Will be hiring him again for entertainment.”

Full Biography

Singer-guitarist Marcus has a broad repertoire encompassing rock, pop, indie and soul from the '60s to today, from the Beatles to Bruno Mars. 

Having been classically trained on the piano since childhood, and then picking up the guitar aged 16, Marcus has been involved in music for over 20 years. Having played in several bands in London and Birmingham, and performed his own material around London at legendary venues such as the Troubadour, he has been performing for nearly a decade.

Marcus can boast having played over 200 gigs over the last two years – many of them private events and weddings. He mostly travels over the South East of England, but can go further afield where required. 

Marcus is perhaps most at home playing downbeat, romantic numbers, but is well renowned for being able to play a given song in several different ways, and is more than capable of getting a crowd dancing! He likes to tailor his performance to the event, and is always happy to learn a special song or two for the day if appropriate! With consistently great reviews from clients, and a reputation for good communication and professionalism, Marcus looks forward to sculpting his musical performance to fit your event perfectly!
