ML Presents is an entertainment company that executes music bookings, band management
and event production.
Marcus Linial represents some of the best live entertainment in the country. He is also the former owner of two legendary clubs in New York City,
Shine and Canal Room.
Marcus exploded onto the music scene as a promoter in 1989, producing his first concerts at the legendary Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY & eventually opening his own venues, Reminisce Lounge in 1994 and Shine in 1998. In 2000, Linial, who was also a recording artist, got signed by Clive Davis to his label J Records, was managed by Johnny Wright, and toured with O-Town. Shine re-opened as Canal Room in 2003, hosting legendary artists and celebrity events. Marcus then became the manager of Voyage, a Journey tribute band, and later created the Back To The Eighties Show with Jessie's Girl & GO 90s with The Fresh Kids of Bel-Air, both of which are NYC staples that occur every weekend at Le Poisson Rouge on Bleecker Street. He produces these shows as Fun Music Presents, a subsidiary of ML Presents. Linial has also landed a very impressive roster of musicians for client's private events such as Fiona Apple, Olivia Newton-John, Salt-N-Pepa, and Bret Michaels just to name a few. ML Presents' speciality is allowing clients to put their event over the top by delivering the best entertainment whether it’s a national headlining act or one of the country's best cover/party bands.
Our company was built on word of mouth by our clients. People come to us for the fun. We make sure we deliver on every level.
