An audio engineer & producer by trade, Reed’s vocals will recall those of the great Frank Sinatra and fans say he could go toe to toe with modern giants like Michael Buble. Originally from Guam Reed’s influences span a diverse range of music from the Rat Pack, to hip hop and beyond.
A true triple-threat, this heartbreaker is a Fernandina Beach native who woos audiences with her sweet, sultry sound that could have been plucked straight from the 1940’s. With influences like Nina Simone & Peggy Lee, her voice lends itself to a simpler, classic time. Not to be underestimated, Marah is also a talented actor and aerialist, performing a variety of shows in NE Florida.
The Band: Our world class horn section and rhythm section for the evening includes: Kenny Hamilton, Rick Benedetto, Cameron Strine, Mike Delorean. Luis Ocasio, Norah Doughtery, Dennis Negrin and specials guests to be announced from the stage.
