Musician and actor Marcus Coloma (“General Hospital” fame) sat down and chatted after his solo acoustic show at Hooch and Hive in Tampa, Florida.

“It’s really cool,” he said about performing in Tampa’s Hooch and Hive. “I can’t tell you the last time I played a live show, so it was really fun to have a great turnout, and I just felt like everybody had good vibes and it was a fun show.”

Coloma was known for his role as Nikolas Cassadine on the ABC soap opera “General Hospital,” which he played for three years, and for over 300 episodes.

He paid a moving homage to his late “General Hospital” co-stars Sonya Eddy (Epiphany) and Jackie Zeman (Bobbie Spencer). “They were both amazing ladies and such blessings. I cannot believe how many people we recently lost from the show, it’s crazy,” he said.

Favorite songs

Coloma acknowledged that his original songs “Desperate” and “Hold” on are the ones that were the most personal to him from his set. “These songs are from two different periods of my life,” he said. “They have two totally different significances.”

“That’s a great song,” he exclaimed. “It is just so good.”

Future plans

Regarding his future plans, he shared, “I will be in Los Angeles again soon for a month or two to check it out and catch up with some people, especially Maurice Benard.”

“I am going to check out the scene and see what is going on acting-wise there,” he added. “Then, I will come back to Florida where I will continue writing, I have a couple of ideas such as ‘The Maltese Emmy’ with Maurice Benard and Kin Shriner.”

“I am just thinking about doing different projects,” he added.

Upcoming in-person fan events in New York

On June 24 and 25, Coloma shared that he is looking forward to be back in New York City doing in-person fan events with Marcus Coloma World. “I am very excited about that one,” he admitted.

“I am excited about the karaoke, that’s always a blast, and then we are going to explore New York and see a Broadway show. I am super excited about that I haven’t seen a Broadway show in a long time. Also, nothing can ever beat the New York pizza,” he elaborated.

Fans

For his dedicated fans, Coloma stated his appreciation. “Thank you to all of the fans. The fact that people flew out to see me perform my acoustic show in Tampa, Florida, from such places as California, New York, Kansas, and Minnesota, is just incredible and I appreciate it so much. All this inspires me to do more, and I am really enjoying it,” he said.

“I have nothing but gratitude and love for the fans,” Coloma concluded.
