Zechs Marquise formed in El Paso in the spring of 2003, taking its name from a popular Japanese anime character. In June 2006 the band released 34:26, a live improvised set culled from their frequent west coast tours.
Zechs Marquise is a four man band from Texas and can be described as a magnificent band that was brought into the music world by the Rodriguez-Lopez family.
