Marc 'Da General' is my go to bro for live music. As a lyricist working with this master drummer, I call him the heartbeat of the band whenever we are performing on stage. We have been working together for over 15 years. We met when I use to compere a monthly event, at which NuVibez were the resident band. From freestyle sessions to touring, we continue to work together to bring an electrifying experience for the audience. One call and Marc handles the rest. This is what you call professionalism.
