That John Marascalco, who wrote for Elvis and Little Richard and others, is from Grenada? That his Good Golly Miss Molly was written about Grenada, and the title provided by our own Jimmy Penick

MURAL ART ON DOWNTOWN BUILDING

Grenada just received its fourth marker on the Mississippi Blues Trail, in honor of our very much alive Eddie Willis, lead guitarist with the Funk Brothers, the sound of Motown. And of course our Grenada High School Band has for decades now been recognized on the national scene as The Band To Beat.
