COCONUT GROVE – Marquise Fair found his love for music as a five-year-old singing Gospel songs in his mother’s church. He was heavily influenced by Motown and Bob Marley while growing up and began performing on stage at age 20 with a used guitar he taught himself to play. Independent producer and drummer, David Wheren, invited Marquise to work under him in Switzerland in 2013, and he has been playing music professionally in Europe and the U.S. ever since. He finished recording his first album with David in 2015, and his latest release entitled “One Race” has aired on television and radio in Switzerland. He competed on American Idol in 2018 and was one of 169 contestants to make it to Hollywood.
Marquise will perform his original songs and soul, blues, Motown and reggae classics under the moonlight at The Barnacle Historic State Park, 3485 Main Highway, Coconut Grove, FL 33133 on Friday, April 16, 2021 from 7 p.m. EST to 9 p.m. EST.
