Legendary Band Reunion at SAVOUR 2022

In addition to the experiences above, the fifth edition of SAVOUR will also feature live music by the legendary R&B band Marvin and the Dogs—reuniting for the first time in several years specifically for the event! The band performed extensively throughout Wisconsin in the late 1970s and early 1980s before separating in 1985.
