Marco Capelli Frucht
Known for soundtrack music in Duke Nukem 3D and Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic's Schoolhouse...
Psst: Henry CrowDog helped write This Land Is Your Land.
Marco has performed in Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Texas, Kansas, Wisconsin, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, Illinois, Massachusetts, North and South Dakota, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Oregon, Tennessee, Wyoming, Washington, Washington, DC and of course NYC, Connecticut and Rhode Island closer to where he comes from.
Marco likes classical and folk mostly, but he also likes punk, pop and parody music. He used to play bass in a three-piece Christian Heavy Metal band called "POE," (Peace On Earth) so if you hear a weird influence now and then it's probably just loose eardrums.
"If you think the music you're hearing here is eclectic, you should hear what I do when I'm playing out in the streets!" he once told someone in the mezzanine to a theatre where he was playing classical guitar before nine showings of Phantom Of The Opera's bus- and-truck group. He didn't know it at the time but the woman he was telling this to was Sarah Brightman's Broadway understudy. She went on to lead both on Broadway and in the touring companies. Marco currently plays every day in the summer at an amusement park, and hibernates in the fall, winter and spring.
Playing guitar since age 14...
...writing songs even longer.
First album, unsigned, unpublished, and unpromoted was titled "Hootenany Green." Copyrighted 1989 as a demo on digital audio tape (DAT) and cassette only. Sold 50 copies on first printing and 150 on the second. Contains 8 songs and a commercial.
The demo also includes "Hey Mon," which was written in 1988. Carl Franklin digitized it as one of the first midis ever uploaded to the Internet. The music from it can be heard on any computer that has a sound-blaster built in. Or look for it in search engines as reggae.mid Marco has 900+ original songs, but he's only happy with 300 or so.
Writes whenever he's awake and completes the math while he's asleep and dreaming.
Marco is a Pisces, loves long walks in the park, the color purple, poetry and everything besides Proctor&Gamble products - IE: Pringles, Puffs, Olean, Pantene, Prell and Pepto-Bismo.
"Oh wait, did I leave out Puritan Oil, Jif, Tide and Pert?

Enjoying this immensely.
Great phrasing here.
Nice compression on the guitar! Makes for a LOT of extra sustain. :)
Django Reinhart meets Gordon Gano of the Violent Femmes. I love this!
Amazing! Deliberately derivative, and fun! Good work. I find you guys highly inspiring.
This song and "Grown Ass Man" are my favorites so far.
