Multi-instrumentalist, producer, entertainer, music director, are a few hats the Detroit bred Marcus Douglas, wears. With drums being his first love, Marcus developed his skills playing in church, and later joining his high school’s Jazz Band. At age 15, the pursuit to becoming a professional musician, started when Marcus was awarded the opportunity to play behind world-renowned trumpeter, Rayse Biggs. Shortly after high school, Marcus started making a name for himself on the local music scene, playing in night clubs, stage plays, and in recording sessions.
With no fear and lots of faith, Marcus started his own band in 2016 and landed a contracted residence at Detroit’s MotorCity Casino Hotel, where he is still currently in the entertainment rotation.
Marcus was also the drummer for Collective Peace, a Detroit based Jazz Band, whom he recorded and released the album “Introducing Collective Peace” with, in 2017. That album made it to #6 on iTunes Jazz top albums, and #1 Jazz album on Google Play for two consecutive weeks.
Marcus has also toured as the drummer for Artist/Musician ZO, of the group Foreign Exchange.
