Gibson Brands Chairman and CEO Henry Juszkiewicz was honored as one of the inductees to the Rochester Music Hall of Fame on the weekend.
Henry Juszkiewicz was inducted alongside bassist Ron Carter, jazz legend Gap Mangione, bass-baritone William Warfield and party band Wilmer & The Dukes. And he brought the Gibson Tour Bus along to his home town for the event. And a few other artists showed up in the name of celebrating Gibson guitars; Pat Travers who performed “Boom Boom (Out Go the Lights)”, and Randy Bachman who played the Bachman Turner Overdrive classics “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet” and “Takin’ Care of Business.”
Henry Juszkiewicz was born in Argentina to Polish parents. His family moved to Rochester, New York when he was 5. In his list of thanks, Juszkiewicz included the United States, saying “This is one of the few countries where you can be an immigrant with no money and succeed.”
