Accomplished musician Joe Ramsey (Class of 1974) was one of Arcadia High School's

best-known and most beloved alumni.  Sadly, we lost Joe on December 29, 2014, after a

brave battle with cancer, heart problems and a recent stroke. Joe was 58.

As a founding member of the rock music groups The Prime Movers and Dread Zeppelin,

both of which featured fellow Arcadia musicians, Joe achieved considerable success

during the heyday of Southern California rock music. His musical roots were firmly

planted in Arcadia, forming bands while at Dana Jr. High with his young buddies and

continuing through high school with local rock acts such as HiFi, Chance, Foul Play, The Item and

The Cyclones. In the late 70's Joe partnered with several friends to open


The Marquee West, a popular rock and roll club in Arcadia.

More recently, Joe, his wife and their daughters, 6 and 4, settled locally, and he

became co-owner of Resistor Records store in Monrovia. Always a huge supporter of AHS

and the community, Joe helped organize a unique and successful music event in

2013 at Matt Denny's in Arcadia that reunited several of his local bands. Following the

event, it was Joe's dream to stage another all-star Arcadia rock reunion. In keeping

with that, we have worked with his family and closest friends to pay tribute to this

beloved and accomplished musician with The Joe Ramsey Rockapalooza Benefit Concert.

On Saturday, February 21, a selection of local artists and special guests will

take the stage in his honor. We invite you to join us for an unforgettable night of music

and memories to celebrate the life of a remarkable and much-loved musician, father and friend.
