A Performing Presence
International Singer, Pianist, Showman Marcel East is among the top echelon of performers in Las Vegas with a colorful career from singing with Mrs. Barbra Streisand & appearances on American Idol, to backing The Tonight Show’s legendary host Jay Leno & composing arrangements for Michael Jackson’s anniversary album.
Marcel started his passion for music while watching his uncle, and bass legend, Nathan East perform with artists like Phil Collins, Stevie Wonder, Toto, and Eric Clapton. Fresh out of school, Marcel went on a nationwide tour playing keys for Motown band The Steppen Stonz. This is where he first got his taste of the world and stage life. This seasoned band was action packed, and the perfect start to launch Marcel's performing career.
Along the way, Marcel’s talents were recognized by Disney and he was offered a position at Disneyland CA. He enjoyed playing keys at the magic kingdom then quickly set his sights internationally to become one of the headlining acts in Russia, China, France, Qatar, Mexico, Canada, and Maldives (where he was featured on The Travel Channel & National Geographic).
You can currently enjoy shows at his residency at Aria Casino and Resort, a lavish, ultra-modern resort in the heart of the Las Vegas strip where he performs all of today’s hit songs. He can also be spotted regularly at Mandalay Bay where he performs with Emmy-winning recording artist Patrick Sieben & the LVB.
When the Vegas artist isn’t on his main stages, he can be found entertaining at beachside weddings in San Diego, or corporate events in Hawaii & Miami with companies like Amazon, HP, and NASCAR.
Currently, Marcel is producing a high-energy super band and promoting his debut pop single, "FOUND FOREVER" available for streaming and download on all music platforms September 25, 2020.
