The Marquee Club - A tribute site dedicated to the history of the legendary Marquee club at London's 90 Wardour street.



I'm a visual artist from Madrid Spain living in Seattle who makes album covers and sleeve art.

Since an early age, I've been involved in art projects with bands and music artists, including album covers, stage design and music fanzines. It was especially my love for the band YES started a fascination for The Marquee Club and the early London Soho music scene.

During my time living in London in the late 90's, I realized about how lost the memory of the old Marquee Club was. No books, videos, nor documentaries... I was in shock. I understood that somebody needed to do something about it before many of the witnesses would go, so I decided to create this web site.

I'm happy to say that after the opening of this web site, some documentaries have been produced regarding the history of The Marquee Club, to which I was excited to collaborate.
