Marquita Bernard - Pianist / Singer - Grand Rapids, Michigan Event Location: Louie Louie's, Traverse City MI Event Type: Night Club 14th July 2018
I have many highly positive references, but I have not had anyone write a letter yet. I will attempt to have some reviews written and post them here. Until then, I can provide the phone number of some of my clients, if requested. One of these clients is Doug Streeter, owner of Louie Louie's in Traverse City MI. I performed there most recently on July 13th and 14th. Another is a Sound Engineer at Gun Lake Casino in Wayland MI, named Ira Briggs, and the other is an agent and a colleague, Timothy Hunt.

In 2010 I began working for Rum Runners Dueling Piano Bar in Raleigh, and moved to Michigan to fill a spot in their Lansing Bar. I was there every Thursday through Saturday for about a year.
In 2013 I worked at Monaco Bay Dueling Piano Bar every ...
