The Guy in the Groove


October 21, 2022 | 2pm-4pm | La Fonda’s Lumpkins Ballroom | Exploring the History of Rock Music of the 60s

Join us for a lively music lecture presentation that incorporates songs and visuals by Santa Fe's "Guy in the Groove" Dick Rosemont.

Enjoy an overview of 1960s rock as it evolved musically, culturally, and commercially—from pre-Beatles pop to later "hard rock".   Plus, learn about how the national and international music scene fused with the Santa Fe scene and La Fonda's culture.


Dick Rosemont Bio:

From an early age, music has been a part of Dick Rosemont’s life. Encouraged by his father who played in big bands in the 1930s, Dick formed his first rock band in suburban Detroit in 1963. He has produced and hosted radio programs on both public and commercial stations. His music articles have appeared in various publications. After 47 years, he still buys and sells record albums, now here in Santa Fe.
