Marshall is a professional and a pianist first. Over his career he has refined his talents as an arranger, composer, contractor, producer, MC and radio host. Initially drawn to music through classical piano and jazz, he has added all styles of popular music from hit recordings and big band to blues and Latin.
To develop these interests to their fullest, Marshall has assembled a first-class, professional musical organization devoted to each. Having drawn from Chicago's top talent pool of finest musicians, Marshall has the perfect blend of performers whose style and capability express each organization's unique focus. Whether the drums and rhythms of hot salsa, or the swinging brass sounds of the big bands, or the sophisticated piano of the Marshall Vente Trio, each unique group is devoted to providing an authentic musical _expression. Always attractive and authentic vocals too!
Marshall is an experienced and fun Master of Ceremonies who can keep your event on time and moving. He knows how to "read" an audience to play the right music and always brings excitement to the party. He's always admired and emulated the versatility of the great bandleaders of the past, especially those that could play a concert hall, or dance party, or recording session with equal facility and professionalism.
Always the versatile entertainer, Marshall is often called on to provide specialty "dance and party music" for various corporate, charity and private events.
