"Retired Entertainer & former radio DJ , performer, Joe Penny, until recently didn't really know why he had kept, stored away in old boxes, dozens of old tapes, dating back to the 50's and 60's. Then a chance meeting with rockabilly artist, Dave Moore at the annual Rockabilly Festival in Jackson, Tn. in June of 2001, led Penny to being booked on the 50th Anniversary Hankfest at Moore's home in W.Va.(New Years, 2003) He found out that a few years after being a member Hank Williams early band ('47-48) Joe had put together a rockabilly band in the late 50', and King Records released a couple of his 45's, which got air play, but not much else. Joe was still hopeful that some of his other material could catch on, and for a while he shopped it around. Dave Moore found that Penny still had some of that material stored away, and offered to fly him to his studio in W.Va. in March to re-record a session of "vintage rockabilly". He also informed Joe that, even tho' this music was no longer "mainstream" here, in Europe & England, it gets heavy play and sales. Moore and his partner, John Nubraugh (NBT Records) have just released and saturated the European market, Joe's first rockabilly CD, "THEN & NOW: LARGE ECONOMY SIZE". Since retiring in the early 90's, Penny has kept busy working with several churches in the area, most recently joining the music department with pastor Steve Wingate at the newly established GRACE FELLOWSHIP on Also brook St. in Plant City, where he now makes his home. For the past 12 years, both he and his wife, Frankie, have worked devotedly with Dr. Ron Patterson in Christian Disaster Response, (President,AECC) also 15 years with street & statewide prison ministries. This work has been the most rewarding, however Penny is very thankful for the many friends he has made through the years at WPLA (5 yrs) WTWB, WWAB (6 yrs) WGTO(3 yrs)With this new interest in his old music , Joe Penny has now realized one more purpose in his life, another way of reaching out to others."
