Marco Man Band(MMB) - Professional and showy drive band!


We play anywhere! Just leave the driving to us! MMB repertoire is from Elvis to contemporary show and dance music. It’s not unusual to hear MMB playing Bon Jovi cover and then jumping straight to Willie Nelson song! We love to keep our musical scale as wide as possible. Something to everybody! MMB started in the beginning of 2007. Very vision-ful musician Janis Retenais wanted to put up his dreamband! The face of the MMB is Marco Ojala(Finland).The other members are the top of the cream in Latvia!
