Marion DuBose - Electric Violinist - Houston, Texas Event Location: Cancun Event Type: Wedding 14th June 2023
Marion was amazing as our violinist for our wedding in Mexico! When we met with him to discuss the songs we wanted him to play, he was so accommodating and did not have ANY limitations. Having a Desi wedding with lots of Desi songs, we knew that it would be a new challenge and difficult to transition, but Marion did a fantastic job. He spent hours practicing to make our wedding entrances and welcome parties perfect! The music added such an aura and created the perfect ambiance for our venues and programs. All our guests, even experienced violin players, raved about Marion, and we are raving about him here. Not only was he great at the job, but he was very fun to hang out with and even joined us for a cenote excursion! He was the perfect vendor that we could have hired, meshed well within our group, and now a friend!

Meet the Act

I started playing the violin when I was 10 years old. My older sister is a classical orchestra teacher and taught me first. I picked up the electric violin in high school and played at my first talent show my junior year and haven’t stopped since. I love making music and putting my heart out in every performance!
