Hall of fame bound

News broke Tuesday that a second Jefferson band will be inducted into the Iowa Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. Elm Street Grocery has been tapped to join the Bushmen (2018 inductees) in the hallowed halls of Iowa rock. They’ll be enshrined Labor Day weekend at the Iowa Great Lakes, with founding member Steve Hance vowing that the band will reunite to play the induction ceremony. Like the Bushmen before them, Elm Street Grocery was made up of local high school students in the ’60s, but with the added oomph of a horn section. The lineup fluctuated, but the following were members of Elm Street Grocery between 1967 and 1969: Rick Arbuckle, Steve Arbuckle, Bruce (Smith) Banister, Hank Davis, Steve Hance, Jim Heath, Jim Oatts, Dick Oatts and Scott Sutherland.
