Legal Addiction - Get your music fix!

The Members

Rod Marlin

Lead Vocals, Bass Guitar

A long-time resident of the Sacramento Area, Rod has played with several local party and acoustic bands. Growing up learning rock'n'roll and Bluegrass inspired Rod to play and sing live. His love of music has also inspired him to put together a group of musicians that have the same drive - hence, Legal Addiction was born.
