For over fifty years, the luxury glam Sunset Marquis Hotel in west Hollywood has served as home-away-from-home for musicians including Led Zeppelin, Blondie, KISS, Black Sabbath, The Killers, Slash, Chris Cornell, Green Day, Aerosmith, Kings of Leon and many more. The music industry has played a big role in helping this serene garden oasis achieve its iconic status. To pay homage to its roots, Sunset Marquis continues its tradition of a summer acoustic music showcase, Live @ Sunset Marquis.
Previously only open to hotel guests, music tastemakers and industry insiders, the summer concert series will now be open to the public on a limited basis. The series will begin May 29 and run through October 2 featuring not only up-and-coming artists, but also talented emerging artists that guests may already recognize on select nights. Each poolside show offers attendees and sponsors an up close and personal listening experience with tomorrow’s next big artists.
“Each summer we get the chance to discover new artists and give back to the entertainment community that has supported us so well throughout the years,” said Chris Cope, VP of Marketing at Sunset Marquis. “We look forward to welcoming the local community to experience the performances this year and expanding LA’s vibrant music scene.”
Previous artists include Gary Clark, Jr., Run River North, ZZ Ward,LEMMO, Ana Cristina, Alex & Sierra (X-Factor Winners), Madeline Fuhrman and Lena Fayre to name a few. A full list of the 2015 artists will be announced nearer the show dates.
These intimate performances will be held on the Villa Pool Deck and will hold a maximum of 200 attendees, allowing each guest to feel connected with the performing artists. Doors will open at 6pm with performances from 7pm to 10pm. Show dates will take place once a month on May 29, June 26, July 17, August 21, September 18 and October 9.
