Calling Marvin, a "root-rock" ensemble with more than 20 years under its belt, combines Zeppelin-esque/Black Crowes-sounds with a jam-band mentality. Three CDs, Eye Sore(1999), Twelve Spiders a Year (2002), and Big White Van (2006) have produced songs including “Orange Morning” and “Neapolitan” that led to radio interviews and airplay in Marquette, Petosky, Lansing, Detroit, and even Jackson. Although originally based in Milford, MI, leader Cole Garlak considers Jackson a second home; the band’s bass player since 2001, Dan Bickel, is a Jackson native. In an effort to showcase the 2-guitar onslaught of Cole Garlak and Dave Humphreys, and the thunderous drumming of Markus Ross, performance selections typically include interpretations of great rock literature and a hefty inclusion of Calling Marvin originals.

The band behind the hits The Freshmen, Photograph and Colorful. The Verve Pipe have a reputation for spectacular live performances, the genesis of multi-platinum
artist The Verve Pipe can be traced back to the early 90's when the principal members
of two rival Michigan bands joined forces. After releasing two independent albums,
I’ve Suffered A Head Injury and Pop Smear, the group quickly garnered a regional
following for its textured rock songs distinguished by innovative arrangements, soul searching lyrics and layered vocals.
