Cranberry Township celebrity hits the big time

October 11, 2012 by  

A Cranberry Township celebrity, Nick Marzock, has landed his big break, thanks to Nestle’s Drumsticks ice cream treats.

Over the summer, Marzock auditioned for casting agents and producers and was chosen to appear in an online video thanking Drumsticks’ Facebook fans. The video, entitled ‘The Drumstick Ode to One Million Fans’, was released on Monday, October 8, after the Facebook page for Nestle Drumsticks earned its 1 millionth fan.

The video features Marzock, a musician who plays regularly around the Pittsburgh and Cranberry areas, playing the ukulele. The lyrics of the song include the names of people who liked the Drumsticks page on Facebook. The video was shot around a swimming pool in the North Hills area. To film it, the director came in from Chicago, Illinois and top brass from Nestle flew in from California.

Fans of Drumsticks, or of Nick Marzock, can catch the video over at the Facebook page for Drumsticks. When the Cranberry Township native has poster printing for his next gig or album release, he might consider listing his brush with fame and Nestle on the posters.

Marzock is a recent graduate of Duquesne University. The singer-songwriter often performs at the Hard Rock Cafe in Station Square and has also taken to the stage at Club Cafe on the South Side of Pittsburgh. In January of 2012, he released an album that featured performances from members of Rusted Root and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. Marzock’s work with Nestle Drumsticks might just be the start of a highly-regarded musical career.
