The Marquettes Short Info

Guitarist Connor Long and vocalist Conor Dowling met in Heywood during the late-2000s. Sporting mop-top haircuts and sharing a love of the electric guitar, the two became best friends and began writing music together. With the speedy addition of bassist Josh Lloyd and drummer Miles Wimbleton, the quartet grew their skills on the local pub circuit for a few years before storming onto the Manchester music scene as they knew that if they could play an hour’s gig in a Middleton pub and survive; then they could survive and flourish anywhere.
Since 2012, The Marquettes have become regulars at some of Manchester's' most prestigious venues and shared stages with equally prestigious Manchester-based bands such as The Heartbreaks, Man Made and Blossoms. The band themselves are beginning to receive some high profile attention, in January 2015 they were cited by Fred Perry Subculture as one of their 'Manchester bands you need to hear now!'
The Marquettes pride themselves on writing and performing their own brand of sincere, yet infectiously catchy music – the genre of which has been said to lie somewhere between ‘Tip-top Heartfelt pop’ and ‘Soul n Roll’. Their debut EP 'Darling, Don't Fret.' is out now and you can find it on Spotify and iTunes.
