Nova Red Room and Mark Ronson rock The Star to its core

• Mark Ronson’s second Marquee Red Room as epic as his first

The multi-talented Sony Music musician, DJ, songwriter and producer Mark Ronson returned to Marquee at The Star last night to entertain a dedicated Nova Red Room audience.

It’s hard to believe that four years have passed since he last blasted tunes from the Marquee stage. Back then it was a memorable appearance that came just after the release of the massive hit Uptown Funk.

His show last night proved to be just as epic as the first. And his showstopper after an hour of massive hits was again Uptown Funk.

It was loud, more so after Ronson started the show turning around the stage monitors, telling his audience he wanted to make sure they heard it properly!

The set was peppered with massive hits he has helped create with performers ranging from Amy Winehouse to Lady Gaga to Miley Cyrus.

Ronson played the gig during a short promo trip to Australia for his new album Late Night Feelings. He appeared on The Project Sunday night and did interviews on Monday.

Sony Music ANZ CEO and Sony Music Entertainment Asia president Denis Handlin hosted Ronson at the event. Handlin also hosted another Sony Music hit machine, Amy Shark, and the veteran music industry boss introduced the stars before the Marquee show.

A big team from Sony Music Australia included Tony Glover, Dan Nitschke, Grant Donges, Kim Caley, Tammy Hofbauer, Petrina Convey, Bronwyn Tasker and Rowan Thiedman.

Nova’s drive show co-host Tim Blackwell interrupted a Byron Bay vacation to MC the event. His Nova colleagues enjoying the entertainment included Luke Minto, Nathan Reay, Michelle Stephenson, Kane Reiken, Stephanie Loupelis, Sarah Crowhurst, Troy Pearce and Nova’s Red Room guru Claire Marshall.

Also in the room were new Bauer Media Australia boss Brendon Hill and his busy general counsel Adrian Gross, presenters Joel Creasey and Erin Holland and News Corp music and entertainment reporters Kathy McCabe and Jonathon Moran.
