Denver-based duo Marcel & Janelle offer listeners a fresh mix of Indie/Soul music. Strong artists in their own right, Marcel Anthony Arocha and Cynthia Janelle Arocha each performed internationally (as solo artists and as part of various groups), before meeting in West Michigan and collaborating on their first band together, Under the Sun. After achieving local success in Michigan, the husband/wife team decided to showcase their sound outside the Midwest and turn their four piece into a touring duo. Under the Sun became Marcel & Janelle and the couple relocated to their new home base in Denver, CO.
Their positive vibe, entertaining show and original tunes are just a few reasons that the ever-growing crowds at shows across the country are as diverse as the music. “We love that people can relate to and genuinely enjoy our music. We want people to have as much fun listening as we have playing,” says Janelle. “What we do is not meant for just one genre or one kind of person,” agrees Marcel. “It’s really a reflection of who we are as diverse music lovers.”
