M A R & The Marmeladies

M A R and the Marmeladies is a spirited 4-piece band rooted in the rich tapestry of Latin American Folk and ventures beyond boundaries of genres adding a touch of quirky bluesy indie and Latin flair over bilingual lyrics. Hailing originally from Peru and based in the US, M A R, the lead singer and guitars of the Marmeladies is a trans/non-binary songwriter, musician and producer. He started the band along with multi-instrumentalist Andy John on bass, harmonica, cello, slide guitar, and whatever other instrument he’d pull from his closet. Zack Downes plays Latin American rhythms on the drums keeping an indie feel, along with their newest member Madelyn Ilana on violin and vocals, who just joined the band!

Together, they create a fun and enthusiastic groove that always gets an audience on their feet and singing along - whether they know the song or not.

M A R and the Marmeladies are available for private events, outdoor festivals, weddings and more.
