ABOUT MARC STONE
Self described as a “guitar slingin’, soul singin’, song scribin’ funkified roots and blues man,” Marc Stone worked his way up from the streets of New Orleans to perform alongside the music masters of New Orleans. His energized performances, whether with his band, solo/acoustic or with all-star projects, are a staple at clubs and festivals in the city. Stone’s extensive song book crisscrosses the highways and side roads of American music, while his originals cut their own path with a unique, fiery blend of roots music informed by two decades of backing icons of rock ‘n roll, New Orleans R&B, funk, soul, and zydeco.
Three former parapsychology professors set up shop as a unique ghost removal service in a movie that swept box offices in the summer of 1984. Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Dr. Raymong Stantz (Dan Akroyd) and Dr. Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) work at a university where they delve into the paranormal and toy with many unethical experiments on the students. After being kicked out of academia, the trio form a new business named “‘Ghostbusters,” headquartered in an old firehouse, where they are called upon to rid New York City of paranormal phenomenon. They make national press but are ultimately thrown in jail by the EPA who declare the ghost-catchers frauds., Yet, the mayor pleads for the men to be released to wage battle against a long-dead Babylonian demon wreaking havoc upon Manhattan. From rottentomatoes.com: “The climax is a glorious sendup of every Godzilla movie ever made—and we daresay it cost more than a year’s worth of Japanese monster flicks combined. Who’d ever dream that the chubby, cheery Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man would turn out to be the most malevolent threat ever faced by New York City?” (Rated PG-13 | 2 hours, 14 minutes)
