Rockin' Brunswick - The Groceries, "Part of the New America" (10 of 12)
Posted by Paul Devlin:
The Groceries were really a Princeton band rather than a New Brunswick band. But we found a way to sneak them in Rockin’ Brunswick anyway, because they were so popular.
Robin Gamble and Martha Haney lent us equipment for Rockin’ Brunswick. They were friends who ran a company called Video-a-Go-Go, which pioneered music video projections at live shows even before MTV became popular. Martha shot footage of their friends The Groceries at City Gardens in Trenton, NJ and various other locations and I edited it.
Richard Auguste Morse led The Groceries. Later he sought out his musical roots in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. He wound up running the storied Hotel Olofsson, frequented by prominent visitors such as Jonathan Demme. Richard’s current band RAM was featured on the soundtrack for Jonathan Demme’s movie Philadelphia and he has a successful musical career in the Caribbean, releasing 5 CDs with RAM.
Stay tuned next week as we return to Crossfire Choir!
