Review for John Marsh:

A native of North Carolina, trumpet player and vocalist, John Marsh attended Clayton State University pursuing his associates’ degree in business management supervision. After entering the United States Army, Marsh chose music as a profession, and went to the US Naval School of Music in Norfolk, Virginia where he graduated in March 1974. His first musical assignment was with the 82nd Airborne Division band at Fort Brag, North Carolina where he played lead jazz trumpet and vocalist, while studying advance music theory, jazz arranging and improvisation. He toured a good portion of Europe as a jazz and pop performer.

Marsh has versatility as a performer in pop, jazz, and classical mediums, and his energy is contagious. With 38 years of musical background, his main influences have been Woody Shaw, Freddie Hubbard, Frank Sinatra, Dizzy Gillespie, and John Coltrane, along with Miles Davis, Maynard Ferguson, and Ella Fitzgerald.

March has studied with professional trumpeter, Donald Byrd who was the director of the music department at North Carolina Central University in Durham, North Carolina. In addition to being featured on radio and television in Europe he studied in Frankfurt, West Germany. He also performed for the Queen of England, and the British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher during that time.

Marsh currently resides in Atlanta and performs at several locations throughout the city including as the house band for the Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Falcons, Georgia Tech sports, Le Meridien Hotel as well as majority of country clubs for private events. Most importantly he enjoys communicating with people for their pure pleasure of his music.
