After drumming for the past 20 years in NYC, Marcus is excited to be back in Frankfurt. As a 16 year old, Marcus started drumming in Frankfurt with cover bands and singer-songwriters, backed up by the occasional shift as a cab driver.
After moving to New York in 1998, Marcus was active in NYC’s vibrant East Village singer songwriter scene and hip hop scene, living the first 4 years in a windowless back room of a drum shop. Marcus soon played with a variety of bands and artists such as Blue Man Group, Chubby Checker (“The Twist”), Reverend Vince Anderson, and Steve Borgovini (Fun Lovin’ Criminals).
Getting deeper involved with Blue Man Group and drumming on commercials for General Motors or Anheuser Busch, Marcus began splurging on an apartment (with windows) and on private drum lessons with Bernard “Pretty” Purdie.
In 2017, “sought for questionning” by US Federal Marshalls, Marcus needed to leave the US quickly and relocated to Frankfurt, where he is keen to play in the widest possible range of styles.
