Marnie is a nostalgic throwback to the vaudeville era where story, song, and a little bit of goofiness, were intertwined. Wielding her ukulele, Marnie blends the cabaret, broadway, and jazz art forms into a seamless, and hilariously, entertaining show.
As a multi-hyphenated artist, her years of experience have landed Marnie appearances across Colorado and the U.S.. Marnie has shared the stage with the Rocky Mountain Ukulele Orchestra, Hot Tomatoes Dance Orchestra, Savannah Symphony and Colorado Springs Philharmonic to name a few. She has delighted audiences at the Candlelight Dinner Playhouse, Boulders Dinner Theatre and in numerous club appearances at Dazzle Jazz, the Mercury Cafe and more!
Marnie has created 10 unique solo cabaret shows that she has performed around Colorado and beyond. And is a highly sought after presenter at ukulele festivals, where she performs and teaches skilled based workshops to encourage all people to participate in music in their own way.
As an arranger for the Rocky Mountain Ukulele Orchestra, Marnie highlights the diversity of the ukulele by showcasing 80+ ukuleles on stage performing instrumental orchestrated pieces from classical music to heavy metal.
For 8 years, she was the owner / performer for Reveille 3 - An Andrews Sisters Tribute Act. They toured extensively in the U.S., and performed at the 70th Commemoration of D-Day in France. Marnie co-wrote three original musicals for the group, telling the stories of women during WWII interwoven with the songs made popular by the Andrews Sisters.
Through her Voice & Ukulele Studio, Marnie is proud to pass along musical knowledge, meeting her students at their level of engagement, truly showing that music is for everyone to participate in.
Marnie’s infectious enthusiasm for song can be felt through her unique storytelling and arranging. She considers herself a steward of the Great American Songbook and honor to help keep it alive.
