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...


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". 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 33 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

I have a bunch of shows coming up with the unbelievably talented Brian Harris drumming for the Billy Joel (Simply Billy) and Elton John (Simply Billy) tribute bands! Playing for this project is so much fun and I can't wait to play more gigs! Dates being announced through the rest of the year!

Flowers For Dorian has been writing like crazy and we're basically in the final stages of recording our newest album, which will be our comeback album after 10 years of not being a band. We just released the first single off of the new album with a video to go with it on June 28th, 2019. The new album, "Steve Bronson: Kickass Songs To Get Your Ass Kicked To", is slated for a spring release but is TBD at the moment. We're very excited about 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 few 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! 

I'll have more for you shortly. Stay tuned!!
