Biography

Not everyone understands just what music is all about, what writing and harmonizing really consists of, and what it means to wait patiently for success and giving up the socially accepted ways of living for true success. One can see just how a band should work together to look and sound as though they have been in the business for decades when watching Zechs Marquise play live. This band combines all types of different sounds and instruments to create an ambiance few have heard since bands like Yes, Pink Floyd and King Crimson hit the scene in earlier years
Zechs Marquise formed in the fall of 2003 going by the name of Monolith, and they played their first show in spring of 2004. Since then the band has been creating a stir in their hometown of El Paso, TX. With their energetic and always evolving live performances the band brings the listener along with them on their journey. Utilizing the live elements of jazz improv, and applying them to rock, the listener is transposed from the audio aspects of music to the visual. As proclaimed by Crystal Robert, booker and promoter of The T-Lounge, “a fusion of senses resulting in a unique and psycadellic rock experience.”
Over the course of two years members Michael Farraro on drums, Marfred Rodriguez-Lopez on bass, and Matt Wilkson and Marcos Smith on guitar, have had the honor to play with such bands as,Bus Driver, Data list, Free Moral Agents, Coaxial, Blow up Blow, Year Future, Chin up Chin up,The Make Belive, The Album Leaf, The Roots of Orchis, Oh my God, Seneca, and Art Lewis, just to name a few. They have recently been recording their second album that will be released in the Fall of 2007.
Zechs plans to tour to promote their up and coming album with high hopes that others will find what so many have found in their music, true enthusiasm passion, and inventiveness.
