Marvin Sperling (Bass/Vocals)
Marvin Sperling is a dynamic bass player who's performed and recorded with a wide range of artists.  As a child, Marvin played violin and guitar but due to early influences such as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, he soon discovered his true instrument was the bass guitar.  Marvin has played, produced and recorded for over forty years with artists such as Keith Emerson of Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi, Kelly Hanson of Foreigner and Heaven and Earth as well as Robert Fleischman of Journey and Paul Shortino of Quiet Riot and King Kobra. Marvin is the brainchild behind The Shagwells along with Mick Adams. Because of their love for the early British Rock Bands of the early 60’s and 70’s, The Shagwells is the perfect vehicle!

Vince Lupo (Drums/Vocals)

Vince Lupo’s musical experience starts right at the same time of the British Invasion, perfect for The Shagwells.  With degrees in music and psychology, combined with bringing a sound ‘ear’ to the table… he is enabled to help shape the rhythmic textures and rocking backbeats of all those British 60's classics. Many can play but few can actually recreate that versatile, classic 60's feel quite like Vince does! Vince has also been featured on AXS TV's "The Worlds Greatest Tribute Bands" with Mick Adams and The Stones. As Vince Shagwell, he perfectly recreates the beats of great drummers such as Charlie Watts, Ringo Starr and Keith Moon among many others.
