My Bio
Marv Jonesi moved out to Sun Valley, Idaho, from Chicago in 1996, then moved to Boise in 2000. He’s been a professional musician since the age of sixteen, and in Chicago was a staff producer/writer/singer/guitarist for a national jingle company for fourteen years, performing on over 2,000 sessions and creating commercials for United Airlines, McDonald's, Sears, the original Glade Plug-In spot ("Plug it in, plug it in..."), etc., etc. He played in a zillion rock bands in the Midwest, California, and in Idaho. Early on he played with Jay & the Americans, Sam the Sham, Major Lance, & Tony Orlando & Dawn; in the 70's his own band opened concerts for Sly & the Family Stone, Bob Seger, Steppenwolf, REO Speedwagon, Mike Nesmith (the Monkee), and assorted others. In the 80's & 90's he worked in the studio with Delbert McClinton, Jennifer Warnes, Patti Austin, Tom Paxton, John Sebastian, Rosemary Butler (backup singer for James Taylor, Jackson Browne, etc.), Janie Fricke, Lynn Anderson, Dr. John, Matthew Wilder, Eugene Record (of the Chi-Lites), and Joe Williams (the late, great singer from the Count Basie Band). He currently plays with several local blues/rock bands and records his own tunes in his home studio, and contemplates the music floating in and out of his navel. Especially out.
