MARENE is a once-in-a-lifetime EXPERIENCE hailing from Cape Town. Their on-stage antics have entertained and blown away audiences throughout SA and are now bringing their over the top FLASH-ROCK show to Grahamstown.
MARENE is a band that was put together to be the band that nobody has ever seen live. Front man, Lead Vocalist and Rhythm Guitarist Tyler Duggan (Purple) wanted to put together the band he never saw on stage. Along for the ride is Lead Vocalist and Bassist Cuan Leo (Red), AKA The Lord Of The Night. While Tyler prefers a Glam-image filled with rhinestones and sparkles, Cuan embodies the dark with his aggressive lyrics and persona. Lead Vocalist and Lead Guitarist Brandon Johnson (Blue) is a charismatic alien who enjoys shooting sparks from his guitar as well as using Tequila to his advantage. Brandon always has a smile and is light-hearted. Drummer Joshua January (Green) uses his solid drumming to convey the power behind MARENE’s songs. With Power Ballads, Singalong choruses, a little Tequila, choreography and special effects, MARENE are sure to give you some Thrills In The Night.
