Why this name?
It's my name, Marc Halikas. I always wanted the stage name "Peter Marc" though.
Do you play live?
I have played live in various venues and genres over the years. Playing live is alot of work and can be very rewarding. I do like to play live.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Definitely. Years ago I would not have ever dreamed of a website like Soundclick. It makes it so easy to share music.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes. I would really like that. Can't ever imagine it happening though.
Your influences?
Weather Report, Spyro Gyra, Yellowjackets, Lee Ritenour, Joe Pass,
Pat Metheny, Bob James, David Sanbourn, Eric Gale, Earl Klugh
I studied w/a great Be-Bop guitarist by the name of Harry Lehiegh here in NJ.Sadly, he has since passed away.
Favorite spot?
Favorite spot is the beach here at the New Jersey shore on a sunny day with perfect waves.
