What kind of a planet are we (on)?

We are a young band of five musicians grounded in various genres on the Czech scene. Our music is of a multi-genre nature as well, with elements of pop, rock, jazz, alternative, etc. The music we play is the original work of our leader Markéta, including mostly Czech lyrics. The topics vary greatly: the serious and somewhat dark side of her ancestry, troubles with a shy lover or a meditative journey across the Uni-Verse. Typical venues where you can hear us play include both small or larger clubs and festivals. 

MarZ line-up:

Markéta Zdeňková - composer, vocals, guitar
Štěpán Janoušek - trombone, vocals, synthesizers
Dalibor Hrubeš - guitar, lap steel guitar
Miloš Klápště - bass guitar, synthesizers, vocals
Jakub Šindler - drums

Where are we headed?

Our planet MarZ has been on its journey through the music galaxy for a few years now. It was initially a duo and recorded a first CD called "Na rozcesti" (At the Crossroads) but for the past two years it has functioned as a larger band of five members. Since the spring of 2019 we have worked on recording and publishing a new CD that is planned for release in March 2020.

Why do we do what we do?

The current CD under preparation has been recorded and mixed in one of the leading studios in the Czech Republic - SONO. We need these recordings to reach our audience in the best quality possible. We have been preparing a very nice booklet as well, to ensure that the result is not only music to your ears, but also to your eyes. All this will cost the entire amount we are trying to raise with the help of this campaign, maybe even more.  We already know that the Authors' Association (OSA) will be a partial sponsor and are very grateful for that! However, as most of our costs have still not been covered, we need your additional help to be able to publish the CD.


Nov 27, 2019 See you tomorrow?

Dear fans of MarZ, thank you very much for all your donations!! We appreciate them very much and hope we can pay you back with our music soon - maybe tomorrow, on the 28.11., if you are in Prague, at the release party of our music video Kamaše in the club Varšava. Our support will be a great…

    You may have seen the prototype of this T-shirt at our birthday concert at Vila Štvanice. The T-shirt has been created by several artists: Kristýna Kübelbecková, Zbyšek Fialka - the designers - and Markéta. And now you can enjoy it, too! There is a MarZ logo on the front side and on the back it says in Czech "OUR UNI-VERSE HAS BALLS!" Do you have the balls to wear it? :D
