To Say that "Music is my life" is an understatement.
I started semi-classical piano lessons at the age of nine.
At age 19 I studied voice under Ernie Martin in New York City.
My whole family was musically inclined, and therefore;
I became "part of the family." ...
My father, my brother, my cousin and I formed a band known as:
"Marie and The Vagabonds" We enjoyed playing together for 15 years
in the New York City area ... During that time we recorded an album
that was a huge hit with our many fans ...
I moved to South Florida 1n 1978 and my brother and I continued to
perform together ... We were known as "The New Yorkers."
In 1983 I embarked on my "solo" career ...
That was when I became known as "The Electric Lady" due to the
"State of the art" electronic equipment that not only allows me
to sound like a small combo but also when needed ...
Like an entire orchestra!
In 1986 I recorded a "Solo" album entitled "Moments with Marie"
The album included five of my original tunes and was produced by
Teddy Mulet from Gloria Estefan's "Miami Sound Machine."
Today, I still enjoy playing and singing in many different venues ...
In reference to that, I think my resume from 1978 to the present
speaks for itself:
1978 - 1979: The Fountainblue Hotel, Miami Beach, FL
1979 - 1983: Carino's Restaurant, North Miami, FL
1983 - 1984: Le Club in Ft. Lauderdale and Mr. Cagney's also in Ft. Lauderdale
1984 - 1988: DiAnno's Restaurant & Lounge, Hallandale, FL
1988 - 1997: Villa Perrone Restaurant, Hallandale, FL
1997 - 1998: Conca D'Oro Restaurant, Hallandale, FL
