Have You Heard the News?

Huey Lewis in a Permian High School jerseyWell, we sure have!

Huey Lewis and the News, that is!

Huey Lewis and the News really rocked the house and raised the roof at the Ector County Colisuem to raise money for the 8th annual ECISD Education Foundation fundraiser, with all of the proceeds going to provide grants for local teachers.   All in all, it was a great concert for a great cause!

Better still, we found out that Huey is a Mojo fan!

And here’s a couple of interesting dabs o’ trivia about Hugh Anthony Cregg III, a.k.a. Huey Lewis:

  • He had a cameo in "Back To the Future," where he played one of the talent show judges at the high school in the fictitious California town of Hill Valley.   Although he was born in New York City, Huey grew up in the non-fictitious California town of Mill Valley.
  • In the talent show scene in "Back To the Future," he’s the judge who dismisses Marty’s (Michael J. Fox) audition as "…just too darn loud." — and the music in question was a heavy metal rendition of the intro to Huey’s own hit song "Power of Love."
