A wide variety of corporate clients also make use of Marnus’ entertainment services for ad hoc one-night gigs

  • Master of Ceremonies/After Dinner Speaker for a wide variety of groups, businesses and individuals for functions, launches, promotions, weddings, birthdays etc.
  • Type of piano music provided can be described as relaxed, “easy on the ear” music, interspersed with some light jazz. Marnus is one of the most accomplished, versatile and sought after wedding and function pianists in South Africa.NB: Marnus does not do church services or accompaniment for singers.
  • Type of one-man band music provided is a mixture from mostly the Sixties, Seventies, and Eighties. The standard compliment for his one-man band work is that the level of volume makes it possible for people to either dance or talk, while creating a light-hearted/relaxed vibe for both the dancers and the talkers.
  • Repertoire on both the piano and keyboard/vocals (background as well as one-man band) enables the provision of approximately 6 hours of continuous music on either without repeating songs (or scraping the bottom of the barrel).
  • Instruments used comprise a fully portable digital Roland piano; a sophisticated Yamaha keyboard with full band and percussion effects; a high quality Yamaha public address system (can also be used by MC and speakers); various high quality standard microphones; and microphone and speaker stands.
  • Marnus is free to travel, a tee-totaller, and dresses appropriately for the occasion he performs at.
  • Fees are realistic and flexible, in line with the size and style of the venue/function to be performed at.
