Desription: Episode 6 - Marc Martel Interview

This episode takes us back to November 2013 when the Queen Extravaganza hit the UK. The interview was recorded backstage at the Shepherds Bush Empire in London just before the band hit the stage. Marc talks about the QUEX audition process, UK crowds, 'Freddie-isms' and his solo material.

Brian Gresch and his recent return to the stage with the QUEX
July 31st 2014



"It was fantastic to play on stage with the QuEx again! It's always exciting seeing how the crowd reacts, and it's an awesome feeling when they erupt in cheer! I actually haven’t played any shows since the last November UK run, it’s the first long gig break I’ve taken since I started playing gigs in 2002. So it felt great to get back on the stage again, especially with the QuEx guys and their huge talent. I really feel like I’m a part of something very special when playing with them, it is such a privilege to be a part of it and perform that magical music together."

"Also off the stage, spending time with the band and crew is a real pleasure. They always hire top notch people. You can tell the crew guys are professionals just by hearing who they have worked with- Aerosmith, Journey, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Guns n Roses, 30 Seconds to Mars, Jeff Beck, just to name a few. It’s great fun exchanging stories. And we always find something to laugh about! I think my new nickname may be Tony Bueno, haha."

The QUEX Watch Queen + Adam Lambert

The guys, including new dad Brian Gresh (!), all got together at the Queen + Adam Lambert Uncansville show last week! Great to see them all together again. The next day the band performed a private show and got back in the groove for the UK September Tour.

Marc's summer update!
July 27th 2014



Hey all! Gather around! Here's some news. This Summer I've been putting the finishing touches on my first full-length album, Impersonator. The official release is set for September 30th, but if you come to one of our UK shows this September, you will be able to pick up an advance copy! I've worked hard over the past year or so writing and recording these songs with some very talented people, and I can't wait for you to hear it. If you're familiar with The Prelude EP from last year, this album is stylistically much more on the "rock" side of things -- much more what you might expect from me. Plans to tour the album with a band following the QE UK Tour are shaping up, and I will keep you posted as that solidifies more.

On a more summery note, it definitely hasn't been all work. Spending lots of time with my A-1 lady friend, grilling out with our (B-1 co-ed?) friends, adventuring to some beautiful Tennessee lakes, rivers and waterfalls, and doing fun creative projects around the house. Last weekend, while Crystal was away, I took the opportunity to surprise her by building her an entryway arbor on the back deck. She's been wanting one to grow ivy and flowers on for quite some time. Her reaction upon seeing it is second only to when she found out I was going to be on Ellen. Unfortunately, I do not have video footage. A fairly simple job, but I must say, if this whole music thing flops, I might like to try my hand at carpentry!

One last thing. Be on the lookout mid-August for another little video I made at home. I think you'll get a kick out of it! Hope you're all enjoying your Summer. See you soon!

The Queen Extravaganza return to action in September for a UK Tour. Tickets and dates can be found here.
