My name is Marcio (MAR-see-oh) and I'm 20 years old. Music has been my life since I was a toddler. I've been learning classical piano since I was four. When I was in 5th grade, I picked up trombone for the school band and I played till I graduated from high school. I was first chair all four years of high school. In 7th grade I started teaching myself drums. I played drums in a just-for-fun band with some friends called Decimal B (don't ask about the name). As a freshman I began kinda teaching myself guitar, but I soon got a teacher who taught me soloing techniques and jazz guitar. I currently play in a jazz quartet named The Red Note Quartet who plays around town. I just started learning jazz and slap bass.
I have been dying to make a serious reggae/rock band with a purpose to make a difference in the world, or at least in the world of music.
I am looking for multi-talented, creative, passionate, easy-going musicians who are willing to try different things. Contact me at rebel.2188@ or myspace.com/music_man21.
I grew up on rock. For me the things that make a good rock band are: 1. able to write songs that are more complex than just one progression throughout the whole song. 2. able to creatively apply music theory such as different time signature, key signature, and strange rhythms. 3. They must straight-up ROCK!
My other love is reggae. Reggae is awesome! It's a wonderful example of simple beauty. These two genres have so much versatility that the possibilities are endless!
