ARCA’s newest Honorary Member and long time Birmingham area (and beyond) musician, Henry Lovoy, will speak at our June meeting. The meeting will be June 23, which is the fourth Sunday instead of the usual third Sunday and will, or course, be held at the Homewood Library beginning at 2pm.
Henry is in his 50th year in the music business. Most people primarily know Henry from his days with the Rockin’ Rebellions in the mid to late 60s, one of the best all around Birmingham bands, but he has played with or been connected to many other bands including the Counts (which became the Distortions), the Road Runners, the Ram Chargers and Chair, to name but a few. Henry has played music all of his life and currently plays several nights a week with his band, Razz Ma Tazz, at Hogan’s on Hwy 280. He is the drummer and lead vocalist.
Henry was thrilled to have been added to our Honorary Membership this year and is looking forward to speaking to us about his long history. He says he was billions of stories and I believe him. All you have to do is talk to him or ask him something about music.
Record Show shoppers had fun browsing through lots of photos, surveys and other memorabilia that Henry brought to the show. Hopefully, he’ll bring them to the meeting as well.
Visitors are always welcome at ARCA meetings. If you would like to talk to a Birmingham music legend and pick his brain a little, make plans to stop by on June 23!
