DC LIVE with Cole Marcus and Host Terry Bozzio - Rebroadcast
Only a select few drummers can boast major TV show appearances, endorsements with well-known percussion manufacturers, and the admiration of more experienced peers. But how many can lay claim to this by the age of four?
At just eleven years of age, Cole Marcus continues to impress worldwide audiences and the entertainment industry with his genius talent, and has become established internationally as a serious artist. His precocious drumming, songwriting, and vocal abilities have garnered appearances on countless TV and radio shows, not to mention feature articles in drum magazines and newspapers. Cole's exposure has opened up doors far outside the drumming community and has reached into an acting career. He can be seen creating and performing his own beats in the TV commerical for LG/VH1's 'Save The Music' and has filmed several other national commercials, including being cast as the new "Mikey" for Life Cereal.
Cole is, however, a drummer and musician first. At three years old, the legendary Dave Weckl called him up to the drum kit at one of his clinics and Cole proceeded to wow the audience and Weckl alike. By the age of four, Cole was offered endorsements with Mapex drums, Zildjian cymbals, and Vic Firth sticks, and had signed with BMI-making him the youngest person to ever land full artist endorsements and the youngest songwriter in history to sign with BMI.
Cole also donates his time to causes for children's cancer and arts endowment.
