Album Notes
Give a listen on the left.

Marqui Adora is:

Danny Ashe - Vocals/Guitar
Joe Shockley - Drums/Programming
John Tooker - Bass/Keyboards/Guitar

After spending many years in the South Florida music scene the members of Marqui Adora finally found the musical formula that worked...

Just as Joe Shockley and John Tooker had almost given up on finding a singer who could create the sound they wanted they heard it through the walls at a rehearsal studio in August of 2004. After a quick hello during a break Joe learned that the voice they heard in the next studio was Danny Ashe and that his band was called Marqui Adora.

At the time Joe said to John, “We’ve got to steal that guy!” Things worked themselves out without any larceny when Joe noticed Marqui Adora was looking for a drummer a few weeks later. Joe called Danny and proposed that they could combine both of the bands and see if it worked. When that first practice resulted in three new songs they knew that this was the right mix.

Things worked so well that the new Marqui Adora played a show in less then two months to a very shocked audience. Members came and went during the next two years but the core of the group stayed Danny, Joe, and John.

After nearly two years of false starts the first record White Buildings was finished in June of 2006. It was a challenging mixture of rock and dance music with layers of sound making for a easy repeat listen. A short time later the band was contacted about using one of the songs from the record, Empty, in a 2007 Nissan Sentra campaign.

At the end of 2006 the band also found itself with an offer they couldn’t refuse. When local rock group Fashionista fell apart their guitarist Howard Melnick found himself without a band and offered his services.

The power trio version of Marqui Adora now found itself with it’s own guitar god as a very solid four piece.

And life was good...

In a word? Excellent!
It's hard to be objective when you're head over heels in love...White Buildings is smokin' hot first minute to last. Of the six tracks I have six favorites. They're just that good!
The arrangements are interesting and clean. The lyrics are clever and catchy enough to sing all day, without any trite or tired wordplay.
Each song is unique and stands well on its own. Collectively it sounds like the perfect score to an 80's blockbuster. From the anthem vibe of MARCH to the toned down beauty of WHITE BUILDINGS, where the hero returns for the love scene. A time machine would serve these men well, but only if they promise to come right home.
And speaking of time machines, Elvis himself couldn't hold a candle to the sexy voice of Danny Ashe. Particularly on DIE IN A DISCO and EVERYTHING THAT MAKES NO SENSE. Mmmm. Elvis who?
With due respect to Rush; Danny Ashe, along with Joe Shockley and John Tooker, are the perfect three.
Buy this CD! Support these amazing musicians! If you turn out to be the ONE person who just can't get into this phenomenal band, you still haven't lost...When they are filling arenas and thanking Mom from the Grammy podium, you can flip that puppy on Ebay for some large!
No kidding, they're just that good!
