"I've seen Marcus open for Dave Mason: perform on my show 3-4 times: and touch
the soul of audiences in every variety of venue... you better hurry while you
can, and see him up close before you end up paying a scalper for nosebleed seats
in the Pepsi Arena. Don't say I didn't warn you."
Arthur Gonick
WSPN-FM Saratoga Springs NY

"Marcus writes songs that you know come from the heart, and make you want to
know more about the circumstances behind the song. He's the next Bruce
Springsteen, but without the fame or money (yet)!"
Alan Green,
Senior Marketing Consultant,
Clear Channel Albany

"His rich baritone vocals paint vignettes that dig deep into despair"
Don Wilcock
The Troy Record

"Ruggiero rock's, a rich voiced sharp writing troubadour"
Mike Lisi, The Daily Gazette
