Biography

No stage can contain the energy of 12 Cents for Marvin and audiences would have it no other way. Formed in their college days nearly a decade ago, the band has grown as individuals and musicians. Ska/reggae/rock is a quick but incomplete way to describe the 12 Cents sound. It must be experienced to be understood.

The band named itself after meeting Marvin, a colorful street character panhandling and following a mathematical formula requiring him to receive twelve cents per person he met.

Since then, 12 Cents has been voted Best Band in the region multiple years in a row. Recognition continued when the band garnered first place in Colorado’s Scene Magazine’s Battle of the Bands. Gaining this recognition early in the band’s career laid a solid foundation for the independent nature of all present and future endeavors. This is exemplified by radio play for multiple 12 Cents’ songs along the Colorado Front Range by both independent and corporate radio stations.

While on stage, energetic antics rule. This never overshadows the artistry, dedication, and years of hard work put in by the talented members. The band includes Tom Werge on vocals and trumpet, Hilary Spriggs on bass, Phuong Nguyen on saxophone, Nik Levinsky on guitar, Soren Daugaard on drums, Aaron Spriggs on theremin, Greta Cornett on trumpet and John Giordanengo on trombone. The sum is greater than the parts and this synergistic effect adds a distinct edge to the 12 Cents for Marvin sound.
