Act Description: Picture the opening of Mary Poppins with Dick Van Dyke as a One Man Band, except on steroids. The One Man Band, Marc Dobson performs “musical illusion” sounding like a band playing a variety of music from the 50’s thru 90’s. The appearance is a bit comedic playing a back pack drum kit via feet and arms while playing a guitar out putting both guitar & bass parts and harmonica. Seeing is believing, all performances and videos are completely live. Marc may be the most advanced Real One Man Band in the world. With interactive improv comedy, no two shows are alike.
