The purity and range of her vocal skills, together with her excellent guitar playing opened the door for Mary to have the great fortune to record with jazz greats Gerry Mulligan, Max Kaminsky, Bucky Pizzarelli, TootsThielemans and Ray Barretto. Later she shifted into writing music for radio and television.
Patti Austin, Michael Bolton, VickiSue Robinson, Jonathan Edwards and Astrud Gilberto have recorded her songs. For years she wrote and sang jingles working with the top musicians and singers in the country. One of the jingles you may recognize is "Wait'll We Get Our Hanes On You"!!!
Mary’s repertoire includes popular music from the 1940’s to Today, for shows, listening and/or dancing !!

Better watch out........here comes STACEY STEELE!
Like many musicians, Marty got his professional start while still in his teens, performing dance music and backing up shows in numerous resorts in the famous Catskill Mountains in New York. He played sax, clarinet and flute, and even did a little singing to entertain the guests. Throughout high school, he played his instruments in the school band, and was always involved as a pit musician in the school’s Broadway-style musical shows. He later attended the prestigious Manhattan School of Music and played flute in the symphony orchestra.
During his career in New York, Marty performed with his band in many clubs throughout Manhattan’s uptown, downtown and the Village. One highlight was playing at Shea Stadium with Murray the K (a famous DJ in New York) in a televised production in which his band was one of the groups on the same bill as Stevie Wonder, James Brown, and Frankie Valle and the 4 Seasons. He later toured with his band in Europe and South America.
Since coming to South Florida in the 70’s, Marty has excelled as a performer both as a singer and an instrumentalist, and has appeared in venues from Key Largo to Orlando, including stops at Trump’s Mar A Lago and the Signature Grand. Audiences are always amazed by his great versatility. In fact he is known as the “Ultimate Performer” !! His vocal stylings in several different languages cover a wide musical range. He is equally comfortable singing opera, Broadway and pop. In fact, Marty has thrilled audiences by singing selections from Phantom of the Opera, Le Miz and Man of la Mancha. Then he will switch gears and sing songs of Neil Diamond or Tom Jones, and finish his performance with an Andrea Bocelli or a Josh Groan favorite.
What makes his shows unique and even more exciting is his virtuosity on his musical instruments. Not only does he play saxophone, clarinet and flute during his shows, but he also performs on a very special Electronic Wind Instrument called an “EWI” (pronounced EEWEE ). This instrument looks like a soprano saxophone or a clarinet, but it electronically imitates the sound of 100 different instruments, with sounds as diverse as a violin, trumpet, bassoon and even percussion. As Marty weaves these effects into his show, audiences cannot help but be amazed and thrilled. Watching Marty in a show is an experience that can’t be missed. Like all his audiences, you will want to see this “Ultimate Performer” over and over!!
