Marvin Ellis

Marvin (Marv) Ellis bass guitar player for The Grimm came from a musical family with both his mother and brother singing in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir located in Salt Lake City, Utah.  Marv joined Greg Ericksen in forming a folk group, The 4/5ths, in junior high school where they met.  Marv played piano and later took his hard-earned savings to purchase a bass guitar (against his father’s wishes) and taught himself how to play. During high school he sang and played the lead role in the theatrical performance of Brigadoon.
