WELCOME

Hello. My name is Marc Robert Esses. MESSES for short. This is my official music page where I will post all of my music news, videos, recordings, tour dates, photos, etc...

About MESSES

My name is Marc Robert Esses, MESSES for short. I am a drummer/singer/DJ. I play drums for the bands/artists "For The Fallen Dreams" and "GOLDHOUSE". I just recently resurrected my old band "Flowers For Dorian" who just put out a brand new album in September. I'm also a part of Drum/DJ duo "BROOZEWAYNE", Drum/DJ Duo "Marc Esses and Danny Vintage", and Acoustic Rock duo "SUIT UP!" I also DJ on my own under the name "MESSES". I have played drums for the bands "Breathe Electric", "Dr. Manhattan", "Ivory Wave", ETC... I'm 34 years old and I have been playing drums for over 20 years. I was born and raised in the north suburbs of Chicago. My dream is to play music until I'm dead. So I will try to make that dream a reality. <3

Newest Happenings!

Wow. What a year we've had. Not much going on in the way of live shows recently due to the pandemic, but I have been staying busy trying to build more content. I have a new studio/practice space where I'm creating a lot of new things to show everyone. Been writing with different friends to put together my first official solo releases as MESSES. SO many cool things happening on the writing/recording front even with the pandemic putting a hold on shows and touring. So stay tuned on all of that...

 

as far as Flowers...

Flowers For Dorian released a new album at the end of September called Steve Bronson which is our comeback album after 10 years of not being a band and we couldn't be more stoked on how it turned out. Please get your ears around it if you get a chance. Flowers has been writing like crazy and we're basically ready to start putting together another record. We're very excited about all the new music and James couldn't have said it better... "Sorry for all the Flowers For Dorian posts lately but I really couldn't be happier with the music that we have been writing over these last couple months. We have been having such a good time hanging and writing music together again and I think that is really coming through in these new songs. What makes it even better is that so many of you are looking forward to hearing them even after we've been gone for the last 10 years. We definitely appreciate all the love!" I'll keep you posted on all things Flowers For Dorian as we keep moving forward!

 

The FTFD camp has been trying to stay busy even though we cant really get together at the moment. We've been doing some great merchandise drops to stay in the forefront. We're currently in the writing stages for the 7th Full Length Album which we should have some more info on in the near future. Lots of exciting news that I can't really discuss just yet, but very excited for the future of the band.

 

Thanks so much for your support! For the time being, I'll be posting my newest content videos as I create them right below this post. I'll have more for you shortly.
