Chris Marx

Chris Marx


Sounds like Elton John sitting in a Starbucks playing Super Mario Bros. 3.


Chris Marx can play any genre of music but specializes in original piano pop with clever lyrics or infectious melodies, reminiscent of Billy Joel or Elton John.

Though he plays keyboards on stage, Chris lets nothing come between him and his audience and unlike most piano players, he is rarely sitting on the bench for performances.

Thanks in part to spending his youth in the Northwest surrounded by Starbucks and other coffee shops, he radiates with caffeinated energy on stage. Squeeze in solid musicianship and Chris' repertoire of hits will make for a memorable experience at any venue.
