Marvin Sperling

Bassist/Producer/Recording Engineer.

Marvin Sperling

Instruments: 500/1 Violin Bass & Club Bass

Coming full circle. At the age of 9, Marvin saw The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show. He then began playing the violin. By 13, he bought his first electric guitar with his Bar Mitzvah money. Because The Beatles were his influence he found a band that played a lot of Beatles and was in need of a bassist. That’s when Marvin found his true instrument! Recording and performing for over 40 years, being in a band with Keith Emerson (ELP) and recording with Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi), Kelly Hanson (Foreigner), and Heaven and Earth, he branched out as a Producer/Recording Engineer. He made records with Robert Fleischman of Journey, Heaven and Earth, Paul Shortino (Quiet Riot/King Kobra) and with long time friend Iain Ashley Hersey (RIP). Currently Marvin is performing with “Mick Adams and the Stones” which is the top U.S. Rolling Stones Tribute Band. The band has performed on AXS-TV World’s Greatest Tribute Bands. Marvin has also created a British Invasion Tribute called “The Shagwells” and is currently using his Paisley Club Bass in that.  He also uses a Violin Bass 500/1 and Club Bass H500/2.
