Besides his perfect picking on some fine old guitars, Marty blows a sharp harp and keeps time on a good old-fashioned stomp box. Its a great organic real acoustic sound-certainly bigger and better than your average pub playing muso.
Marty's song list is a sprinkling of hits and memories from across the decades, easily moving from softer meal music to rock and roll to rock.
From a extensive repertoire. Marty's favourite people pleasers include The Beatles, Billy Joel, Neil young, James Taylor, Gordon Lighfoot, Eric Clapton, Eagles, Creedence, Carole King, Jonie Mitchell, Pink Floyd, Redgum, Goanna, John Williamson, Crowed House and lots of Aussie classic greats, and also some of Marty Bell originals too.
Marty has over 35yrs on stage experience in Melbourne, Victoria, Sydney, NSW, Cairns and Far North Queensland, Papua New Guinea.
