Marcy Playground

Marcy Playground

Marcy Playground is celebrating over 25 years of active touring and recording since their breakthrough hit in 1997, 'Sex and Candy'. The band has 5 worldwide studio albums and an extensive history of tours, film & TV placements, and over 130 Million Streams. Their debut album certified platinum back in 1997, while the radio classic 'Sex and Candy' spent a record 15 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart. Although the album was largely known for that hit, it actually sparked a total of 3 charting singles, including 'Sherry Fraser' and 'Saint Joe on the School Bus' - all 3 of which were also MTV and VH1 favorites. Their sophomore album, Shapeshifter, also produced a Billboard Modern Rock charting single 'Its Saturday'.

The band is named after Marcy Open grade school in Minneapolis where lead singer and songwriter John Wozniak attended. In the early 90's Wozniak moved to New York where he met co-founder and bassist, Dylan Keefe. The two eventually signed with Capitol Records and they have been a touring and recording partnership ever since.

Marcy Playground is no stranger to the big screen either. Their songs are featured on soundtracks such as Cruel Intentions, Antitrust, Simply Irresistible, Hurricane Streets, as well as many films by writer/director Kevin Smith (Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back, Zack and Miri Make a Prono). The band continues to actively tour their 'flawlessly performed' (The Void Report) live show of cult classics and hits. The band is looking forward to the road ahead. As Wozniak concludes 'I'm always growing and always learning new things. Every time I meet somebody new I feel like that's an opportunity to grow because everyone has something new to offer. I think that the next record, hopefully, is going to reflect that'.
