CollegeBand Mervs Into New Territory
BEVERLY HILLS, California, February 7th, 2017 - CollegeBand® (www.collegeband.com), the world’s first archival record label to release decades of previously unavailable music created on scores of college campuses, has just announced a partnership with Stanford University’s very own Merv Spiegel and the Penguins.
“Merv is more than a legacy band” said CollegeBand CTO Geoff Abbott. “They're an inspiration to every young person that wants to get into, and out of, music.” Mark Crimmins, the band’s guitarist, added “We're psyched and grateful to see these songs get exposure after all this time having been heard only by party guests who'd stayed longer than they might, in retrospect, have preferred.”
Founded in 2008, CollegeBand enables users to search and preview merchandise, art, and musical works by bands like Merv Spiegel and the Penguins. Each band’s affiliated school is gifted 5% of earnings, with the remainder split 50/50 between CollegeBand and the artist.
About Merv Spiegel and the Penguins
In 1985, Pete Adamy, Marty Arnest , Mark Crimmins, and Mike Heller somehow managed to find each other, start a band, grow weary of playing "Louie Louie" at Frat parties and join hands to take the leap of faith known as "taking yourself seriously." Before entering the history books, they committed two albums to tape.
Merv Spiegel and the Penguins are:
Mike Heller, Drums
Pete Adamy, Bass
Mark Crimmins, Guitar
