Tight harmonies, clever arrangements, and an actor’s sensibility characterize Marquee Five, the collaboration of singers Mick Bleyer, Adam West Hemming, Vanessa Parvin, Sierra Rein, and Lynsey Buckelew. Marquee Five brings a spunky, intelligent flair to New York’s cabaret world with exciting five-part arrangements running the gamut of the Broadway canon and the American Songbook.
Marquee Five debuted in 2009 and won the 2010 MAC Award for their first show, “We Can Make It: The Songs of Kander and Ebb” at the Metropolitan Room. They followed in 2010 with “8-Track Throwback” at Don’t Tell Mama, a show Cabaret Scenes called “top-notch spectacular.” The group released an album recording of “8-Track Throwback” in 2011. They debuted a third show, “Broadway By The Letter: Act One” at 54 Below in 2013, followed by “Back Porch Swing” in 2014 presented by Dreamcatcher Repertory Theater.
