Biography

Marble Garden is a funky and delightful Jam-Band outta Kalamazoo, MI (might as well be space). Their blazing twin leads and hot slide guitar licks have been turning heads since 2007, and with an always tasty rhythm section Marble Garden has a sound that is continuously fresh.

The band has had great success with their blues roots and played in Memphis, TN, all up and down Beale Street at places like B.B. King's for the 2009 International Blues Challenge. Between that, the group has played great festivals like the Old Town Blues Festival in Lansing, MI (Crowd of 5,000+), the Kalamazoo Blues Festival and the St. Louis Blues Festival, to name a few.

Not to ride on just one genre, The MG's play a fantastic blend of funky and fusion-like music and have opened for such acts as Devon Allman's Honeytribe, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk and Lonnie Baker Brooks. Angelo Santelli has performed as a sideman to Berry Oakley Jr, son of founding Allman Brothers Band member as well. The band's 3rd release is due out in early 2011!
