Restaurant Marvin held a very successful celebration honoring the 74th birthday of its namesake, singer Marvin Pentz Gaye Jr.. Hosted by Guy Lambert of WPGC, the live music was the main attraction with the event showcasing the talent of local musicians, perhaps most notably, Marvin Gaye’s original band, ” The Marquees.” Special guests included the children and other members of Marvin Gaye’s family, along with Marvin’s long-time musical director Gordon Banks. The event began at 4pm but lasted well into the evening helped in part by DJ John Morales of M+M spinning rare Marvin Gaye tracks. Sponsored by Stella Artois, 100 percent of the event’s proceeds went to the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.
