Maralee Marquette - Lead Vocals, Band Manager

Her energy will blow you away from the first moment the lights come up on the stage!

With her huge blue-green eyes, porcelain skin and hourglass figure, one might think Maralee had stepped off the screen of a classic film.  A closer look, however, reveals her chameleon-like abilities and a strong personal style that is anything but silent!

Born and raised in California, Maralee began performing at a very young age with her father and six siblings.  Her father was a Broadway singer and actor.  At age three she starred with her family on a musical mini-series made for television.

Once Maralee had heard recordings of Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton, she was addicted.  Country seemed to already be in her soul.

Maralee discovered her ability for song writing at the age of ten and then began to study dance and drama, and at twelve she was working as a model and acting in television commercials.  She also designs many of her performance clothes. Her versatile singing ability disarms listeners with her soulful rolling vocals and incredible range.  She has performed as lead vocalist with bands locally & abroad, including some of Las Vegas’ top casinos; she was in the house bands at The Tropicana and MGM casinos and performed for thousands at Harrah’s, and also played at the Rio and Monte Carlo.

Maralee has both a powerful stage presence and the unique ability to create a bond with her audience. She is truly the entertainer package!  Able to balance her moral convictions and insights with humor and empathy, Maralee’s free spirit and sound judgment create a charisma that is hard to resist!

Cj Schmierer - Lead Guitar, Lead Vocals

Cj is a versatile lead guitarist and back-up vocalist. The newest

member of Marilyn’s Ghost, he brings to the stage 28 years of gigging

experience from several successful local groups such as Leather & Lace,

The Keith Orman Band, Midnight Hour, Cindy Witt, Nightshift, Group

Therapy and The Kenny Frye Band.

 

Cj’s many musical influences include artists such as Journey, Styx, Boston, KISS, Van Halen, Def

Leppard, Billy Joel, Elton John, Little River Band, Toto, The Eagles,

Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, and Jason Aldean, just to name a few. He is

also heavily influenced and inspired by a number of super talented local

musicians.

 

When Cj is not on stage, he is busy working off stage as a

professional audio/video engineer for large venue concerts and corporate

events or tinkering around in his home studio.
