Our keyboard player Rick Hair has recently battled through Chemo and a bone marrow transplant relative to his cancer.
A few days ago his doctor pronounced Rick cancer free and he has the green light to get back to his normal lifestyle. Thanks to everyone for their support and prayers throughout this very difficult fight Rick has been through!!
We remain with Rick always in spirit and look forward to possible new music related ventures in the future!!

As we reflect on one year ago – May 22, 2011 – and the incredible devastation and havoc the Joplin tornado had on Southwest Missouri, it is important that we remember the victims and salute the survivors of that disaster!! Yes, the band chose to play their concert which took sixteen months of planning to pull off. But we felt so much of the effect and pain of that storm so we just want to recognize on this web site the sheer will power and determination demonstrated by the residents and volunteers over the past year!! It has been a true example of how Americans always pull together and do whatever needs to be done after such a devastating event! God Bless everyone who has helped and is continuing to help ensure Joplin comes back even better than ever moving forward!!

Please read the attached reveiws from a Mizzouri Foxx fan living in California who just watched the dvd. He was not able to make the trip to Neosho to see the event in person.
Kenny / Tom,
I checked out the DVD. AWESOME! Love the walk down memory lane, Kenny. Very cool. The old family videos were awesome as well, not to mention the music. You guys still have it. Your era produced the best music ever. And I agree, Disco and Rap still suck!
Nice work Tom. Enjoyed the artistic details, the green screen, etc… The video playing in the car mirror, frickin genius. A look back… Too cool. It made me a little nostalgic thinking back on my years growing up in the South Bay.
I’ll never forget when your band played at my high school, Mira Costa. In those days we had dances with live bands after our Friday night football games. We had some hack bands come through; some were decent, but you guys were the best band we ever had and the lighting was something I had never seen before. Fun times for all and no worries, I will continue Rock On!
Doug (El Segundo, CA)
As you can see, this video not only captured the essence of our Mizzouri Foxx music and live show, it takes us back to the iconic moments we all shared during the 60′s and 70′s!!
Keep Rock Alive!!

Kenny & Virginia
Kenny placed third at the Brea store competition and wants to thank those who came out to watch the drummers compete. It was alot of fun and reminded Kenny of the good old days! Not bad considering Kenny stopped playing for more years than the age of the guys who came in first and second.
What was the the most difficult location the band ever played at in terms of setting up the equipment?
Back in the early 1970′s we played for a party on a river boat at Lake of the Ozarks. We were using the original band name Sound Company back then. Well, we had to “hand carry” all of our equipment down and up about three flights of wooden stairs to get to the dock and load the gear on the back of the boat. If you’ve ever seen how steep wooden stairs on a hill side going down to a lake can be, you will understand how difficult this was. The the power on the boat was provided by a generator so we had problems with that as well. It was fun though cruising around on the lake that night as I’m sure the fish and several lake residents knew we were there!! Believe it or not, it was easier taking the equipment back up those stairs than taking it down to the boat!!
We understand that we were just another highly motivated rock band that like so many others, wanted to make the big time fame and money. That was the common thread that every group of musicians had regardless of the outcome of their efforts. However we believe we fell into a more refined category in that food chain because not only did we land the record deal with MVP/Polydor Records but our fans had read the articles about our soon to be released album in Billboard, Record World and Cashbox so everything was in place to take the next step by touring to promote the new album. And then at the worst possible moment Polygram took over Polydor and everyone in the company who was going to support our music was let go! Reaching that point after twelve years of working your way towards that common goal and having the rug pulled out from under you is like having the wind knocked out of you “multiplied by a thousand”. Financial considerations and core changes to where the band was at that time weighed heavily on where to go from there. It was very difficult to imagine going back to playing clubs and venues where we had to play copy tunes again so we could earn the money required just to make ends meet!
The business is not fair all the time and certainly there are thousands of great musicians and bands out there. The beauty of it is this….. That was over 26 years ago and groups relied completely on the record label and A&R people to get careers off the ground. Today, we have the internet. Today, we can reach out to all of the people who might have enjoyed our music back then. Since no one really heard most of what we are offering here, this music is still new and fresh to everyone who hears it. For those fans who bought the Trapped Live album and remember our live performances, this will simply offer them a new trip down memory lane. For everyone else, this is a total exposure to what our lives and music were like between 1969 – 1982 plus an opportunity to listen to the solid rock music we had to offer even though some people at a large corporation could care less!! Some people have committed suicide after facing that level of disappointment.
Others figure out ways to keep on going!
If you arrive at this web site and you give our music a fair listen to. Do us a favor. Tell everyone you know to at least check out what we have to offer here and see if some song, photograph or personal experience strikes a note in their heart. For anyone out there who knows what it feels like to have all the momentum in the world going your way and then to have some executive who could care less about your life’s ambition and work destroy it in the blink of an eye ….. this web site is for you. This is not going to be a band reunion effort, but merely a shot to bring Mizzouri Foxx music and history back to the people. If you understand what we are saying then you will help us use the internet to tell the world about our music and awesome life experience in the world of rock and roll.
