Danny Marino Guitarist

Danny marino

Danny Marino (born September 6, 1984 in Montreal, Canada) is the guitarist, songwriter, and one of the founding members of the band The Agonist (known as The Tempest prior to May 2007). He is the nephew of legendary rock/blues guitarist Frank Marino of Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush. He has often stated publicly that Frank has been a large inspiration to him, along with musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Michael Amott of Arch Enemy and Omar Rodriguez of The Mars Volta. Danny grew up in a musical family. His uncle Frank Marino has been guitarist, songwriter, and vocalist for rock band Mahogany Rush since the early 70's, and his father Norman Marino plays bass professionally. His older brother followed his father's footsteps and took up the bass at an early age, later playing in bands such as 3 Mile Scream (Corporate Punishment Records) and, currently, The Catalyst. As a child, Danny had little interest in pursuing the family's musical roots. Instead, he focused on sports, playing soccer, baseball, basketball, and volleyball. But at the age of 15 he was bit by the musical bug. He began playing around with the bass, but quickly switched to guitar as he found it a better creative outlet.
