Michael Z Gordon was the founder of "The Marketts" band and also "The Routers" band in the early 60's. The Marketts were one of the first instrumental bands to create instrumental surf songs. Many of the songs were later recorded by the Beach Boys, The Surfaris, The Ventures and many other known bands.
Today the Marketts are an eight piece band headed up by Gordon. The band performs many of their original hit songs as well as newly recorded songs both instrumental and vocal. The band also performs hit songs from other artists from the 50's and 60's era.
The Marketts is proud to have their songs in movies and commercials. A current commercial for Cricket Wireless features a Marketts song, and a new song written by Gordon called "Love That Car" is being considered by a major automobile manufacturer.
