MARINA AND THE DREAMBOATS was originally a rag-tag team of regular jammers Mo’ Jam Mondays at The Nectar Lounge in Seattle. Marina was assigned a group of players to be part of the Mo’ Jam feature on Band in Seattle in 2015. Marina had a taste and she was hooked. She needed more horns.
The band continues to delight audiences of all ages with their blend of jazz, soul and classic pop. They released their self-titled freshman album on July 13, 2018. In March, 2019, they won the Battle of the Bands at the Hard Rock Cafe Seattle, proving this jazz crossover group has something to offer all listeners.
Marina writes and arranges to her heart’s content for this army of a band! Plus she sings, plays bass and leads the band. It’s like a magic show.
