Malvin Dino Vice began entertaining professionally at the age of twelve where he and Gap Band legend Charlie Wilson, along with some other childhood friends started their first performing band, “The Carver GTs” later to become “The Majestic Soul”. The band performed at the local Y.M.C.A, private parties, teen hops, and nightclubs. Additionally, this band was the warm up act for a Beach Boys concert at the Tulsa Fairgrounds which initiated instant local appeal, and fans were awe struck at the professionalism of this group because of group’s young members. By high school, the name of this band changed to The Spinadas (the name of a mild alcoholic beverage that flourished in the 70s). In their early teen years, Dino and Charlie were asked to fill-in for Charlie’s older brother (Ronnie Wilson, another Gap Band legend), and another musician in a group called The Magnificent Seven, which was co-founded by the older Wilson brother. Immediately, Dino and Charlie were recruited into this band, and continued to back black music dignitaries at the larger venues. Sam & Dave (Hold on I’m Comin”), The Ike & Tina Turner Review, Mel & Tim (Backfield In Motion), The Chi-Lites, Lowell Fulsom, Bobby Bland, Joe Simon, The Festivals, are to name a few of the many acts that were backed by this band. It's going to be a great conversation with a super person.
