Marvin Otto Herzog was born August 9, 1932, on a farm in Frankenmuth, Michigan, to Otto and Clara Brenner Herzog.

Music played an important role in the Herzog home. The family, together with their friends, enjoyed many evenings singing the old German songs handed down through the generations. Most Saturday nights, the Herzog family would be in the kitchen, listening to the radio tuned to the Grand Ole Opry, live from Nashville, Tennessee, and on Sunday mornings after church, they tuned into WFDF radio station in Flint, Michigan, for the Polka Show. From those early beginnings, the old German songs from his father, the country music from the Grand Ole Opry, and the polkas and waltzes from WFDF came the style of music that is uniquely "Marv Herzog."
