Daye Marco is a Canadian musical and Comedic original .. forced to listen to Classical & Country music as a child ,She boasts about being the first one on her block to discover Jimi Hendrix.
She grew up in northern Alberta .. starting out primarily as a “Folk Singer”at the age of 16 did her first public performance at The Barricade Coffeehouse in Edmonton , her first professional gig was in a seedy little lounge in The Cromdale Hotel in Edmonton called “The Ponderosa”. “I knew things could only get better from there on “ muses Daye.
Urged on by friends she invited the manager of The Bonaventure Hotel to come have a “listen” ,which resulted in a steady gig for about 2 years (between The Rosslyn Hotel & The Bonaventure).
Then She discovered “Booking Agents” and life was good . Traveling all over western Canada in the 70\s Daye started to get a following as a Lounge Entertainer.
In 1978 Daye played a “Special Performance “ at The Central Hotel in Kamloops,BC ,It was just after the big “Beer Strike” when they had to import a lot of “American Beer” (Weak by Canadian standards) ... so they had all this American beer they wanted to get rid of and Hamer Jackson (The Owner) decided to make an “Event” of it.
Hiring CTV weatherman Norm Grohmann to tend bar , and Daye Marco to attempt setting a “World Record” for continuously playing non-stop for 15 hours without taking ANY breaks & without repeating any songs. It was done & published in the local paper .. however no one thought to inform the “Guinness people” so it wasn't officially recognized ... but it was a world record at that time.
For years Daye travelled the countryside entertaining, till about 1992 when they brought in the VLT's in Alberta work generally dried up for “Single Entertainers” so Daye quit music , and went to work in the Oil patch .
In 2008 the price of oil tanked and the Sub-Contractors (of which Daye was one) were let go.
Being over-financed on a lot of equipment ... Daye let the bank inherit his oil-tankers ,and moved to Vancouver Island to resume her music career.
With no shortage of material (over 1000 songs) and lots of originals also Dave Marco hit the ground running. He is presently working on his first CD to be released later this year.
Daye's music covers all sorts of genre's : Folk -Rock – Country – Blues – Comedy – Irish Folk – Reggae – Calipso – just to name a few .
