Stand combines heartfelt energy and excellent song craftmanship to deliver songs that range from loud and gritty to mellow and dramatic. Their combination of 2 very harmonic vocalists over hookie guitar lines provide a breath of fresh air in a music world full of mundane rock and puffy pop.

Biography

Comedian, singer, impressionist and TV host Marcus is a multi-talented performer who began his career hanging out at radio stations writing jokes and pretending to be celebrities. After a year or two, he was convinced by a visiting comedian to try his hand on a comedy club stage, he did that night, and as they say, the rest is history.
In 2008 , Marcus shot to notoriety after being featured on NBCs hit TV series, Last Comic Standing, where he went all the way to runner-up. After the show, Marcus proved night after night on the official LCS Tour that he was a comedic force to be reckoned with, rocketing to headliner status by slaying at clubs and colleges all over the country, even earning a reputation of not wanting to be followed by other comics due to his tendency to leave a room destroyed.
Over the course of the last few years, Marcus has written and produced two full-length comedy specials DVDs, Second to None in 2008 and The Hand That Feeds in 2010. He is constantly writing and growing as a performer, bringing a new show to campuses every time he comes, keeping some colleges booking him year after year, just to see what hell do next, and Marcus never ceases to surprise and delight.
1n 2012, wanting to try something different, Marcus looked for a new way to share his talents and decided to write and develop a musical impression show, so along with his good friend, guitar player and fellow comedian, Guy Seidel, Marcus taught himself to sing like over 100 different musical artists spanning from the 50s to today, literally from Sinatra to Jay-Z, and put them all together into an unbelievable, one-of-a-kind musical experience that has to be heard to believed.
