Greg “Mazarin” Marchak 1961-2007

“Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Others stay for a while and touch our hearts so deeply that we are never the same”

Greg was our soundman, road manager, producer, friend and brother. He was simply the best engineer we ever worked with and developed the classic Maz sound from the road and into the studio. Greg was with us through over 1500 shows in the 1980’s. While we were writing and recording Greg would tell us if something was good or it sucked. He was a great blues guitarist, producer and had been living in Florida the past decade producing records, doing live sound and traveling the world with Jon Oliva and the guys from Savatage.

I had the blessed fortune of working with him twice in the past year. Once in Orlando where he did live sound for a room of 600 audio experts (who never heard anything sound that good) and then reunited with Mazarin for an incredible night of music at The Memory in Montauk in August. A photo tribute (below) to Greg with music recorded with & by him in Montauk a week before he passed.

He loved life, his family, his friends, and his lovers, his music, his politics, traveling and Mr. B his beloved kitty cat. There will never be another.

The night’s finale included a 23 Guitar Player Jam to play tribute to Cliff and note his extensive collection of guitars. The generosity and efforts of many made this a night everyone could be proud of. For a more complete listing of the sponsors and participants click to cliffsjam.com/acknowledgements.htm Information is available at this website on where to continue to help Cliff's family. A commemorative DVD is presently in production and will be available in 2005 with profits continuing to the fund.
