Valentine's Day Greetings From Roger Boyd

Everyone in the Head East family would like to wish all our fans and friends a very happy Valentine's Day! May you all enjoy a wonderful celebration with your loved ones. We've started off the year with excellent performances at the Rust Belt and one of our favorites, the Wildey Theatre in Edwardsville, IL. We look forward to seeing our Minneapolis area fans at the Medina Ballroom on Sat. February the 22nd.

A wonderful Valentine's gift for your special someone would be tickets to one of the last two shows with the original "Flat As a Pancake" fellows joining us on stage Oct. 23 and 24 at the legendary Wildwood Springs Lodge in Steelville, MO. This promises to be a memorable weekend, so we hope to see everyone for the final 50th celebration with myself, Darren, Eddy, G-man and Glen along with Steve Huston, John Schlitt and Mike Somerville.

In the meantime, Drew will keep you informed of all the latest Head East news and upcoming shows, so check back often as we add new shows every week. Don't forget to join us for our last scheduled 50th Anniversary celebration show with the final performances of the original Head East "Flat As a Pancake" members at the legendary Wildwood Springs Lodge.

Historic Recording Studio Documentary Now on YouTube

The long awaited and recently completed Golden Voice Recording Company Documentary is now available for viewing on YouTube. The 3 hour documentary is broken in to 18 parts on YouTube so that viewers can watch the lengthy documentary a few parts at a time. Parts 8 and 9 which can be viewed at the addresses linked below talk about Head East and feature interviews with former Head East guitarist Michael Somerville and Head East founding member and keyboardist Roger Boyd.

As many of you know, Head East recorded their first two studio albums at Golden Voice Recording Studio in South Pekin, Illinois. Sadly, the facility was gutted by fire in 1978 and never re-opened. Many musicians passed through its doors over the years including Dan Fogelberg, Jonathan Cain (born Jonathan Leonard Friga), who recorded as Johnny Lee years before becoming a member of The Babys and Journey, and the members of Head East, Heartsfield, Styx, and REO Speedwagon to name just a few.
