Mac is also known as a promoter of live music, a Singing/Voice & Stage Performance Tutor and Adjudicator as well as an Actor, MC and Public Speaker.

  • THE MAC FRANCIS QUINTET

    The Mac Francis Band has clearly developed a number of personal stylistic markers blending high energy and passionate modern improvisation with uniquely written contemporary arrangements that reflect the individual personalities within the group. The band has created a sound incorporating various elements of their past international musical experiences without losing sight of its own voice or the material from the American song book which they choose to play and most people prefer to hear.

    Expect the unexpected and be delighted by the way they incorporate structure with openness and curiosity with their contemporary treatment of the classic standards.
