Cape Ann favorite Mari Martin has been entertaining audiences from Massachusetts to California with her compelling voice and signature stage presence for over 20 years. Mari’s influences run the gamut of popular music…from the Beatles to Stevie Wonder, the Rolling Stones to Billie Holiday. Throw in some Bonnie Raitt, Aretha Franklin, Alicia Keyes, Marvin Gaye, Dinah Washington, Eric Clapton, Earth, Wind and Fire, Ella Fitzgerald and Al Green, and you’re beginning to get the picture. Mari’s original arrangements present songs in new and often unexpected ways, bringing listeners a renewed appreciation for a favorite.
Mari has opened for and shared the stage with such luminaries as Tower of Power, the Average White Band, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Glen Phillips, Jonathan McEuen, WAR, and Alan Parsons. She has also had the great fortune to sing on numerous occasions for local Santa Barbara legend Kenny Loggins. Mari has performed at LA’s Ahmanson Theater for the Obie Awards, the Majestic Ventura Concert Theater, Santa Barbara’s Lobero and Granada Theatres, The Santa Barbara Film Festival and hundreds of weddings, events, local benefit concerts, clubs and venues from Massachusetts to California.
Mari will appear with The Lucky Boys: Mark Retallack on keys, Peter Fedele on guitar, and Roger Brockelbank on drums.
Mari, I appreciate you and your generous spirit. You are a joy to watch sing. Love workin’ with ya…
