Arno Hecht played his very first show with Delaware Destroyers last night, and I haven't even mentioned him yet! Sorry for the delinquency, but here is a brief bio:


Arno Hecht and the UPTOWN HORNS established their solid reputation as one of America's foremost horn sections through fifteen years of recording, touring, and TV appearances with a virtual who's who of the pop music pantheon. If you've heard James Brown's "Living in America", Tbe B52's "Love Shack", Buster Poindexter's "Hot,Hot,Hot", or Cameo's "Word Up", you've heard the Uptown Horns. They played the Rolling Stones "Steel Wheels/ Urban Jungle" world tour in '89-'90 and recorded and played with a broad range of artists from Billy Joel to Public Enemy, Cindy Lauper to Ray Charles, B.B. King to REM.

Hank "Hurricane" Carter Leaves After 23 Years

The one with more sax appeal than you can feel...

It was announced today that Hank Carter has left the band for personal reasons.

As unbelievable as it sounds, it is true.

Hurricane, you will be greatly missed.

As a side note, I must make a statement regarding the handling of this situation by the Destroyers camp. I am highly upset, even offended, by the way this was announced. One sentence on the Destroyers home page. One sentence! After 23 years! On top of that, there is an entire article about how excited everyone is about the new sax player...I understand the excitement, but couldn't that wait for a few days to give Hank his due? I don't understand. I hope Hank does.
