Marc Bosserman Primer:

  • Marc loves creating amazing music.

  • He knows 1000s of songs.
  • Loves Interaction.
  • People singing is amazing.
  • Plays a lot. Constantly performing in the Los Angeles Area
  • His concentration is on playing as much as possible for you. (short or no breaks)

At a recent gig at the end of a 5 hours of almost non-stop playing the host said several times to Marc…”you didn’t take a break all night.” (Actually the host forced him to try some of the amazing food!!)  For Marc it simply is more fun to play the piano and sing than almost anything else He can think of. He has been known to play an extra two hours in a Hotel bar. If the crowd was into it. Just for the fun on it.

Marc has said “in my family when I was growing up we would take trips and to pass the time we would often sing in the car and there was something magical about it.”

  • Music is magical!

So he has managed to make a life as a magical pianist and vocalist playing for cool people in Los Angeles. He plays the piano and sings almost every day.

  • Marc plays about 350 gigs a year. (many days he has 2 or 3 gigs)

Solo piano and piano and vocals are two totally different art forms. Marc’s  solo piano work has been inspired by, among others, Errol Garner and Keith Jarrett and George Winston. He originally considered himself as solely a pianist. Marc has played Solo Piano every Monday night at the Parkway Grill in Pasadena. For the last 10 years! It’s a very upscale elegant classy room and lends itself to solo piano versions of tunes ranging from Coldplay to Cole Porter. He provides amazing solo piano for wedding ceremonies. Sometimes a private event, will only piano-no vocals to create the perfect mood..

Marc was  a resident at a “speakeasy” bar downtown Los Angeles called The Varnish! He was the Tuesday night Pianist there for almost 5 years.The owner did not want any pop tunes just JAZZ. It became a real treat! At times almost like a 50s-60s NY Jazz club. People came in  wanting to hear Miles, and Coltrane and Monk! What!? And in the same room on request Marc also would also  channel Fats Waller and Joplinesque Ragtime honky tonk! And then again at times it could be more of the elegant Sinatra, Gershwin,Cole Porter! A beat up piano/cool vibe, Marc was happily forced to play those styles for 4-5 hours a night!

  • As vocalist Marc is able to sing almost every thing that he can play.

Marc had experience singing anything from Hard Rock to Jazz right after graduation High School. But, did not really consider himself a singer….until he was living in Hawaii. In his early 20s when he started looking for work as a solo pianist…One of the first decent gig offers called for a pianist who could sing and the only chance to get it was to tell them that he could sing. Within 6 months of getting that gig Marc had a 10 hours singing repertoire. It’s been growing ever since.

A solo pianist/vocalist in Los Angeles needs to be able to play almost any song that anyone could request…Basically any song ever written…So to be able to play  a lot…Marc learned every song ever written…just kidding. He does have a vast repertoire of:

 

  1. 30s, 40s American Songbook-Standards- Cole Porter, Gershwin , Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald
  2. 60s hits  Animals, Beatles, Bob Dylan, Blind Faith, Bacharach,
  3. 70s Hits’  Neil Young, Eagles, Elton John, Billly Joel, etc..
  4. 80s  I might be a little weak on this but…Peter Gabriel, Some U2, Journey, Phil Collins
  5. Current- Train, Bruno Mars, Adele, John Mayer, Coldplay, Michael Buble, Diana Krall, Norah Jones, Radiohead, Lumineers etc..

6.Broadway-selections from  Phantom, Cats, Les Mis, Gershwin, Cole Porter etc…

  1. Beatles…lots of it.
  2. Irish- especially around St Patrick’s day!
  3. Wedding music-  the Classic repertoire Canon in D, Chasing Cars, Forest Gump, Bach, Mendelssohn , All of Me, 1000 Years

Marc is always learning new songs. He can learn practically any song.
