  • The 120+ mile journey will set the record for the longest distance ever performed by a standing one man band. Marc will be playing guitar and with every step remote trigger a drum hit on a backpack drum kit. Marc will use both his main backpack drum kit and mini drum kit through sections in “the middle of nowhere.”

  • Fundraising proceeds will go to the non-profit Entertainers Foundation, Inc. which assists Central Florida Entertainers through hardship and tragedy.

Marc has spent 30+ years entertaining. Over the past 10 he’s become a sought after grounds act at fairs and festivals across North America and a One Man Band mimicked by others from around the world. The show is an impressive performance playing 9.1 instruments at once along with improv comedy.
