Tonto and the Renegades Welcomed into the MIchigan Rock and Roll Hall of Fame   Leave a comment

This afternoon the Grand Ledge band, Tonto and the Renegades were inducted into the Michigan Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in a ceremony at Maja’s Grey Wolf Inn in Grand Ledge. I was honored to be able to say a few words about those early days from the Marshall Music Company perspective. Marshall’s was were this group, along with many other bands purchased the majority of their instruments, amps and supplies.

Pictured (left to right) and Jim Hall who played horn on “Anytime You Want Some Lovin'” one of the groups three records that are also in the Hall) Tom Kirby, Gary (Tonto) Richey, myself and Terry Slocum (who came from Naples, Florida for this presentation). These guys, along with a lot of other “kids” kept me feeling young during my Marshall Music days!
