“Martel’s vocal resemblance to Mercury is striking”
– Rolling Stone
“Marc Martel’s ability to sound like Freddie Mercury remains staggering.”
"It's hard to find someone who sings like Freddie Mercury and I'm not sure the movie would have happened if we didn't have Marc Martel."
-Producer, Graham King of G.K. Films
The Ultimate Queen Celebration, an explosive, attention-commanding tribute where some of the most iconic rock anthems of all time collide with a theatrical performance style and eye-popping production. At its core, the riveting show focuses on the extremely diverse body of the band’s greatest hits, from the grandiose “Bohemian Rhapsody” to the adrenaline-pumping “We Will Rock You,” the euphoric “We Are The Champions,” the funky “Another One Bites The Dust,” the stadium-shaking David Bowie collaboration “Under Pressure,” the soulful “Somebody To Love” and the swinging “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” (to name but a few from the steroid-stacked set list).
In addition to the obligatory but nonetheless consistently astounding selections, The Ultimate Queen Celebration also incorporates an entirely unique angle that will have die-hards and casual appreciators alike clamoring to hear several other sides of Martel. “Near the end of Freddie’s life, he explored other styles of music beyond rock, including opera, so with that in mind, the show also includes a segment of familiar songs in the flavor of what they might have sounded like had Freddie ever gotten the chance to sing them,” he explains.
The Ultimate Queen Celebration is a 5-piece band comprised of lead vocalist Marc Martel, accompanied by a short list of uber-talented musicians, including Brandon Ethridge (keys), Tristan Avakian (guitar), Jason Gianni (Drums), Mike Cohen (bass), Angus Clark (guitar), J.R. McNeely (bass), and others.
