Ivy Joe Milan

Ivy Joe Milan had the first integrated band at Huntsville High School (Alabama) in the 1960's. Ivy Joe and The Snowballs got a few raised eyebrows at first but then the other kids at school mainly wanted to hear the music and see the show. Since then, he was drafted into the Viet Nam war, came back a disabled veteran and has been playing congas and percussion and singing locally in various groups. He released "Global Healing", an album spotlighting his percussion abilities, in 2000. "Been Down Low", released in 2013, is his first vocal album. He is releasing his single, "Santa Claus (Here He Comes)", in December 2013.
