Wal Man Wal Man was born in a log cabin in Illinois. He was so poor he had to read by firelight and once walked 5 miles to return a book...no wait, that's Abraham Lincoln! No, Wal Man has spent many odd years perfecting and producing his epic songs and playing them for the unsuspecting bystander and music aficionado alike. Wal has built his musical foundation on the premise that people are starving for entertainment and he aims to make sure they get what they deserve! Come hear Wal's hits like "The Legend of OJ Simpson" and "Love is Only Half-Blind" which have made the name "Wal Man" synonymous with "Entertainment". Yes, run, do not walk to the acoustic stage for Wal's set. You will be glad you did!
Kate Katzberg & Marcia Taylor

As brother Dave wrote: "That's just what we Katzbergs always do...".

She has since written and performed with "The Naybobs, Folkemon,The Yams, and The Providence Wholebellies. Marcia credits her musical life to the fact that her mother sang while doing the laundry. A seasoned performer and recording artist, Marcia writes her own songs and also reaches into the great American songbag to move, uplift and tickle her audience. She teaches privately and at Lincoln School in Providence and considers herself a musical midwife. Marcia lives in the Providence area with her son and their two kittens, Mojo and Kirby.
