Marina Orchestra is the New Orleans based Caribbean Rock fusion project helmed by singer songwriter Justin Powers. Much like other prominent rockers of yore like David Byrne of Talking Heads and Paul Simon, Marina Orchestra cleverly weaves between genres creating a rollicking and groovy style of rock that is distinctly original. Known for their vibrant musical energy and life affirming lyrics the band has wowed audiences with their soaring vocal harmonies and danceable rhythms.
Since 2010 Marina Orchestra has been a vision of a blaring brass section, swinging back-up singers, churning poly rhythms and sweet melodies that stick with you. Marking the ten year anniversary of the project the band is rearing up for the release of their 3rd studio album “Night Life” available everywhere October 30, 2020.
Powers, a Chicago-Area native, launched Marina Orchestra while residing in Knoxville, TN. In 2015 the act relocated to New Orleans, LA. Along the way they have appeared at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Secret Stages Festival and have shared the stage with Sierra Leonne’s Refugee All-Stars, Rusted Root, Future Islands and Peelander Z.
