“Crazy Marvin” Braxton, born May 30, 1943 in Cleveland Ohio had music put in his soul, as do so many of the greats, by his mother and father who played the piano in church. He got started by blowing on a tuba, but quickly discovered a harmonica, won a talent contest at the famed Leo’s Casino in Cleveland, found himself on stage being introduced by Ray Charles at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, … and has been making folks smile and dance ever since.
Possessing the heart and mind of a naïve youngster, Marvin just has a knack for crazy light-hearted and musical FUN. Marvin has found himself in some crazy moments, rubbing elbows with famous musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Sly & The Family Stone, Buddy Miles and recalls the time he helped George Harrison push his broken down Volkswagen up Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles. No stranger to the Blues, he has worked many odd jobs, including a stint caring for horses at the tracks in Louisville, KY.
Marvin has been scuffling, playing the blues clubs around Cleveland, Ohio for decades, and still performs, with a pacemaker now installed, ….CRAZY MARVIN’s got the BLUES and is still “whippin’ n’ dippin’ and Gettin’ on down”.
Marvin will be the center of attention at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland, Ohio this coming Sunday, May 27th from 1 to 4 pm as the local Musician’s Union and Cindy Barber (owner/Beachland Ballroom) throw Marvin a Birthday Blues Bash to which YOU and the public are invited !
