When I first started playing music, The Rockin' Hollywoods were a big influence on my attitude toward the business. They're hard work, professionalism and endless touring schedule gave me something to strive for. They let me on their stage to sing a song with them long before anyone new my name. I will never forget their kindness and I am lucky to call them friends for many years now. Congratulations on 40 years!
When I think of Minnesota music and the great bands that have endured the test of time I think of the Rockin' Hollywoods. They have been a mainstay of Minnesota music for 40 years. They have set a standard in musical value like no other group. I had the honor to work with them on a CD project and it was one of the best projects I have ever been a part of. Band leader Steve Ghizoni and I have been friends for a good part of the 40 years and we both share a love for Minnesota music and commitment to keeping great rock and roll alive. I congratulate Steve and the Rockin' Hollywoods on 40 years and continued success as they play on. Congratulations again.
