Now :

The success of the Marquee Club led to a number of ‘Marquee’ commercial ventures and the eventual establishment of Marquee AV. Expansion and diversification has seen the original Marquee Installations grow into the successful business that exists today, servicing the requirements for professional audio, visual and production lighting in the live, leisure, education, performing arts and marine markets. We’re proud to say that the passion for music and ​quality sound and lighting that led to the forming of the Marquee brand back in the 50s continues with Marquee’s team that provide enthusiastic and committed service and support today. Our Vision & Core Values

History:

The roots of Marquee go all the way back to the famous Marquee Club, which first opened in London in April 1958. The Marquee Club became the heart of the jazz and rhythm & blues scenes in London, where legends like Sonny Boy Williamson, Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated, and harmonica player Cyril Davies regularly played. During the 60s a new generation of British rhythm and blues bands, including the Rolling Stones, John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, the Yardbirds, and the Animals forged the coming of a new musical era at the Marquee. The Marquee became a focus venue for the emerging British scene and witnessed the birth and rise of some of the most significant artists in the 60s and 70s, such as Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Cream, Pink Floyd, The Who, Yes, Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, King Crimson, Genesis the Moody Blues and many others. The club also saw the birth of the different music genres born during the last decades of the 20th century, including acid rock, progressive rock, hard rock, and folk rock. During the late 70s and early 80s the Marquee saw the development of the British punk, new wave, synth pop, heavy rock and neo progressive music scenes, with bands such as the Clash, Ultravox, the Pretenders, the Police, the Cure, Joy Division, the Damned, Generation X, Siouxsie and the Banshees and the Sex Pistols.
