Since 2017, Marc Martel has fronted The Ultimate Queen Celebration, an explosive, attention commanding tribute where some of the most iconic rock anthems merge with a theatrical performance style and eye-popping production. Martel and his band perform Queen’s greatest hits, including “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You,” “We Are The Champions,” “Another One Bites The Dust,” “Under Pressure,” and “Somebody to Love.”


In 2012, Martel was hand-selected by Brian May and Roger Taylor of the legendary rock band, Queen, to front their official tribute band, The Queen Extravaganza. Martel has performed on The Eleen Show and on “American Idol” with The Queen Extravaganza. Martel, who has been described as the “vocal doppelganger for Freddie Mercury” by The New York Times, contributed vocals along with Freddie Mercury and Rami Malek, for the Oscar-nominated Queen biopic film Bohemian Rhapsody.
