Over and over again.’  Tonight we invite you to sit next to the most beautiful girl in class and let her Charley Red perfume fill you with desire.

Tonight we will sing, dance, laugh and cry as we share tale after tale of love and loss. Tonight we fall in love. This is a series of moments, stories, events, and thoughts.

Marky Dawson Live at The Vaults!

Marky started teaching himself piano at 14. At 18, whilst studying at The London College of Music, he started working as a resident musician in bars and clubs. It’s here he developed his fast and wild Rock n Roll style piano playing skills along with his ability to interact with an audience. Taking requests and heckles, becoming an experienced showman. He mixes his versions of classics with his own catchy songs and some jokes. He’ll make sure you’ll sing along! He hates to sit still and has often been described as a Piano test Pilot. Marky is a charismatic entertainer with a voice most often compared to Freddie Mercury (His EP “First Takes” and included a seminal version of “Radio Gaga”) and Piano chops to make Jerry Lee Lewis blush. You will be entertained with the intimacy of a blues club, the performance of stadium act quality, and the fun of the pub. Remarkyble. https://www.wegottickets.com/event/460817
