"Brian Marshall Band"

The local guitarist and songwriter Brian Marshall released two albums before recruiting some accomplished peers -- Ivan Haas on drums, bassist Liz Roderick (niece of Long Winters frontman John Roderick), and lead guitarist David Allan Hultz -- to form the Brian Marshall Band. Vampire Happy Hour is their first collaborative release; it's all classic, fiery rock and roll, with lovelorn lyrics about the age-old game of winning, losing, and trying to win back that special someone. Some songs, like "Shelley" are countrified and twangy; others, like "Weekend in Tokyo," are moody and emotive. There are occasional howling electric guitar solos, and Marshall has smooth pipes that sometimes ascend into a clear falsetto. Solid, mature songwriting and polished musicianship are always a winning combination. With The Tailenders, Horace Pickett. - ERIN K. THOMPSON - Seattle Weekly

"Five Star Review: The Brian Marshall Band at the Triple Door"

I’m one of those people that want the live show to sound like the CD. I hesitate to say the show was better than the CD ’cause I love the CD. Was I ever happy. The show was vibrant, live and at The Triple Door. Wow.

Yeah, wow. Brian, let me know your tour dates and I will get the word out. The Brian Marshall Band dispenses rock, poignant ballads, and everything in between. Brian is a hell of a writer and the new guys in the band get it. Together they deliver. Here’s the breakdown:

Brian Marshall: Lead Vocals & guitar
David Hultz: Lead Guitar
Ivan “Titan” Haas: Drums
Brent Hamby: Bass
David Loy: Keyboards
The show started out with a bang with “Right On You”. The CD unfolded from there. If you haven’t seen Brian perform before, I call his style “cozy sexy.” He’s the hottie next door.

The Triple Door in Seattle was a perfect, delicious venue for the band: intimate and elegant. Thank you, Kristine Marshall for sharing your great photos.

The Brian Marshall Band started as Brian playing solo acoustic shows in the Seattle area and gradually adding members to the mix to more compellingly present the music from his solo cds and the mayfly albums before them. Over the past few years, the BMB has been building a following in the Seattle area and with each show the word is getting out that this band has something to offer beyond the usual sounds one might find in a local club scene.
Songs from Brian's solo cds and the mayfly cds have been featured on ABC's 'What About Brian,' NBC's 'Las Vegas,' FOX TV's 'John Doe,' and the second season of 'Dawson's Creek' box set. Music from Unfinished Thoughts has been played on XM radio and local radio in Seattle, Sacramento and L.A.
