Aaron Marquez, a newcomer to the local reggae scene, will be one of the performers to open for the legendary Marley brothers when they perform on August 30 at the highly anticipated House of Marley concert. His appearance comes on the heels of Reggae on the Bay, which was held on Father’s Day where Marquez performed alongside other major local reggae acts such as Marlon Asher, Jamelody and others. Marquez’s name first started popping up when he unleashed a single called, That Smell, on PengCo Music’s Kush riddim. Now, with a lot happening in the entertainment arena, Marquez is holding his own and together with PengCo Music’s Randal Alexander, to which he became aligned in November 2011, he is building his image and brand.
Marquez has a strong underground following and with that support he continues to receive, the young entertainer says he will continue to deliver strong reggae messages, some with a personal twist and others on the inspirational side. He is currently working on two reggae singles. The young artiste is also preparing to lay vocals on a few international reggae riddims, which will feature big acts such as Sizzla Kalonji and Taurus Riley out of Jamaica. Anticipating his performance at The House of Marley on the night before Independence Day in Trinidad, Marquez is in preparation mode, getting set to deliver what he promises will be a memorable stage show, for his supporters and certainly those who will experience his live show for the very first time.
