Behind-the-scenes information
Played byDavid Harold Brown
"Reginald, gimme your keys!"
—Marvin Berry

Reginald was the drummer for Marvin Berry and the Starlighters.


Reginald owned the Cadillac that the band used to get to the Enchantment Under the Sea dance.

When he couldn't find his keys to open the trunk that Marty McFly was locked in, it was the third time he had left them in there. Marvin Berry had to use a screwdriver to jimmy open the trunk to let Marty out.

Behind the scenes[]

  • The subtitles to the DVD and the script make it clear that the drummer is Reginald. While no source specifically identifies actor David Harold Brown as Reginald, the drummer, the other actors playing the Starlighters are Harry Waters, Jr. (Marvin, who played guitar and was the lead vocalist); Tommy Thomas, who played the saxophone; Granville "Danny" Young, who played the upright bass; and Lloyd L. Tolbert, who played the piano. Tolbert, too, is a drummer, but played the keyboards for the studio recording.
