1 hire on Thumbtack
Mischief made my event. We had a dance floor and the band kept it full all evening long. They had great groove, had varied song list. Marlena not only has great voice - truly star quality - but was amazingly varied in style for music she sang and she certainly kept the guys attention. If she wasn't so nice I would hate her :-) the lead guitar player clear knows his craft - his solos were crazy good and fantastic job singing. Harmony amount the members was impressive often in 4 parts! They showed up on time, were professional, interacted very well with my friends, and put on an amazing show in addition to the amazing sound. I would definitely hire them again!Jun 27, 2014Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We would like to determine your wants and needs and tailor our show to your venue! We work hard at not only giving you wonderful music but an overall positive experience in working with us.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Starting at the age of 10, Marlena, the daughter of a minister, sang gospel in church, and on Saturdays performed a capella versions of the same on the mean streets of New York, drawing a crowd to whom her father preached. These experiences honed her voice, enabling her to emote and greatly connect with all that have the pleasure to hear her sing. She worked, modeled, and sang, while living in the artistic community of Soho, NY. This is where she developed her great versatility as a female vocalist, singing in multiple bands in and around New York City, ranging in style from garage, to funk, to torch and at venues as diverse as sticky dive bars and the famed Studio 54. Now performing in the Los Angeles, CA area: Jazz, Blues, country, and Standards. She most frequently performs in fine dining venues.
