News You Can Use

NOTABLE NEIGHBORS
by Julie Gabell 


    

Kenny Malenda
Wagon Wheel
 
A musician to his fingertips, Kenny Malenda has been marching to the beat of his own drum since the age of five. It was then that his mother, frustrated by her son’s untiring fascination with percussion, gave in to his persistent pleas and bought him his first drum. From that time on, this month’s Notable Neighbor was hooked.
    Kenny hails from New York. He comes from a family of four: his father, a decorated World War II vet; his mother, a wise and loving caregiver; a younger sister and himself. Born under a lucky star, Kenny has won musical prizes since he came away from his first-grade talent show with a certificate of excellence. He grew up during the era of the British Invasion and became an avid follower of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and all things rock and roll.
    Once in High school he played for school dances and any “gig” he could get, thus keeping him in the musical limelight until two years later when he was discovered by talent scouts who were on the prowl for up-and-coming young talent. Nothing came of their solicitations, however, until after graduation. Then in 1972, one phone call changed his life. “Meet us at Madison Square Garden,” the voice said, “We’d like to introduce you to someone.” The someone(s) was Dion DaVinci and the Belmonts.
    That day, Kenny drummed his heart out and realized a dream that only a few hours prior would have seemed a fantasy. He was lead drummer for the Belmonts as they cut a live album for Atlantic Records.
    For the next ten years, Kenny toured with The Magic Touch as they played throughout NY state, South Philly, Baltimore, Washington, Delaware, and Boston. Along the way, he played the opening act for such Motown greats as Chuck Berry. Little Richard, the Shirelles, Sha Na Na, and a long list of Doo Wop artists.
    Though life on the road was exciting and fulfilling, it was also grueling. Thus, in 1983 after a final Golden Oldies Book of Love Tour, Kenny and his family retired to New Port Richey, Florida. Burnt out with music, he took a job hauling dirt to the many construction projects that were cropping up in Pasco County.
    Despite a resolution to turn his back on the music world, however, Kenny could not ignore the subtle drumbeat of his heart. He dabbled in Country music and the Blues, finally agreeing to help produce a Welcome Home Celebration for the Viet Nam vets.
    Kenny has received many awards through the years, though he especially values the Eric Clapton guitar pick presented to him by the artist himself. More than any other prize, however, he treasures his two girls, Christina and Nicole, the joys of his life.
    Although a drummer’s beat will never be far from Kenny Malenda, today he finds time for golf, woodworking, and just plain relaxing. Every now and then, he turns to the night sky, looks up, and winks at his lucky star.

Can Tab Program
Please bring your can tabs to the Civic Center.  We are collecting the tabs to benefit Shriners Hospital for Children.  Although they may be small, the can tabs quickly add up and eventually bring a substantial amount of money each year to support the Shriner's mission to provide expert medical care to children at no cost.  Monies are also used to purchase items for the patients such as arts and crafts.

In addition to the normal business hours Mon.-Fri. 9AM-5PM, the Clubhouse is also open on Saturdays from 1-4PM.  It is available for dropping off payments, obtaining new homeowner packets, card playing or enjoy a leisure day reading in the free Beacon Woods Lending Library.
