Marvin @ 2007 14th Street NW

Monday, April 2nd marks the 73rd birthday of Marvin Pentz Gaye, Jr. and this year, the children and grandchildren of Marvin Gaye and Restaurant Marvin and Stella Artois are proud to present, “Life & Legacy; A Celebration”.

The event begins at 6 pm and will feature a concert by Marvin’s original band “The Marquees”, with special guest singer and Marvin’s brother Antwuan, Marvin Gaye guitarist Gordon “Guitar” Banks and Brandon Clark. Marvin’s “Main Ingredient” Monday night DJ Jahsonic will finish the night with a Marvin-centric set.

In an effort to celebrate Marvin Gaye’s legacy, “Life & Legacy” will serve as a fundraiser for Arms Around The Child, www.armsaroundthechild.org, donating all proceeds from the event in his name.

“Life & Legacy” would also like to highlight the Kennedy Center’s “What’s Going On Now” event, marking the 40th anniversary of Marvin Gaye’s performance of said song on the Kennedy Center stage.
