The Soul Skool Sessions with Marcus Bee Thursdays 5-7pm
'Born in the heart of Birmingham City in the mid 60’s, 'Marcusbee' was part of the R&B and Soul scene. With a fascination of music, Marcusbee was surrounded by family in the industry. At just 14, Marcusbee was thrown in at the deep end when his experienced DJ Cousin had to deal with an emergency and left him controlling the decks, " my cuz had faith in me ..it all started by accident really, all I knew was I could not miss a beat in-between tracks, I had one eye on the dance floor and the other on the decks!".
Spending hours in records shops in Birmingham and London hunting white label releases became standard for Marcusbee. Playing at parties and events locally and live showcases, Marcus dabbled and became proficient in Vinyl before settling into a more varied playing style. Entertaining and Event management being his forte, Marcusbee is familiar and friendly face in the community, managing two Cafes in Birmingham's Handsworth Park (host to Birmingham Carnival and many more). Marcusbee can be heard presenting R&B and mixed genre radio shows on FM and internet stations and plays out locally and nationally at Soul and RnB nights.
Marcusbee has an edge, emulated by no other. Taking true music lovers on a melodic journey,
Marcusbee has played at Soul Boutique, Soul Innit, and Old Skool Throwback (Manchester). Quincy’s, The Loft and Glovers (Preston). The Place and Soul So New (Stoke). Reminisce in the City, Fling Foot, Soul Steppers and was 3yrs resident DJ at Revolution Bar (Birmingham).
Marcusbee is best known for his seamless mixing style; with an ear for ‘BPM’ that holds the dance floor. His ability to manipulate the heart rate with his engineered sets is renowned'.

Featured: 0The retro-soul revival was thought to be a passing fad or trend that rose to its zenith when U.S. artists like Charles Hamilton, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Lee Fields & The Expressions, and UK stars like Duffy, Adele, and, of course, Amy Winehouse broke through to mainstream prominence and critical acceptance. However, nearly a decade since those halcyon days, there still seems to be no shortage of artists and new songs contributing to the ever-expanding canon of original ?60s-inspired raw soul.Facebook Comments: 1more ...
