Marz Inc.

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

March 2015 marks the 7th anniversary of Marz Inc. – an audio-visual production and event lighting design company serving both local and international clients. Throughout the years, Marz Inc. has expanded its services and has become the most popular media company in our area, and the go-to place for event planning. They take clients from an initial concept to full execution – from audio visual, to production and lighting, and are recognized for the extraordinary and original experience they create. Adam Marz, owner of Marz Inc., has spent nearly a decade growing his business, and has had a remarkable journey. This year his grand vision is to light Windsor’s beautiful riverfront on a permanent basis, to mark the International Year of Light.

I interviewed Adam and here is what he had to say.

How did you get started in this industry?

I have been involved in music and art from a young age. I was part of band called, ‘Solidarity’ that started out of my parent’s garage, which I travelled and toured with. I began to buy lights for our shows and experimented with different colour schemes. My first lighting gig was the Ottawa St. Festival when I was 20 years old. From there, it was a snowball effect; I began getting more jobs, buying more equipment and getting new opportunities. I have worked with professional artists like R. Kelly, Patty LaBelle, Tigga, Big Sean and John Legend. I now have my own shop and have 3 awesome employees.

What types of jobs do you take on?

Everything! We are hired to do annual events, like the T2B Charity Gala, and have done festivals like Balloonapalooza, where we did projection mapping. Last year we were part of the Redbull Creation event in Detroit, which was an amazing experience. We do weddings, concerts, and special events. We also light park events, and have done exterior lighting for restaurants and homes. I am able to take on many jobs as I have a great team, “The Marz FAM,” behind me who I am very close to. We create magical experiences, where people can feel what we do; when we do an event, you don’t just get a light or DJ from us, you get a team to make your dream event a reality. I feel lucky to do what I do; I have the privilege of affecting people without them realizing it.

Words of Advice?

Whenever things don’t go my way, I tell myself, “You’ve gotten through worse. You’ll get through it and laugh about it tomorrow.” I think it is important to stop and smell the roses; relish the work that you do because at first there may not be any monetary gain. Take a moment to enjoy your career highlights and past experiences; that is what helps you get to all next great things and will give you the fuel to keep going.
