About this Episode

This week Ben, Hector, Hunter Hutchings, William Kimball and Brit Drozda talk about their friend and brother Virgil Price.

Virgil was a lifelong musician and was important in the South Florida music scene. The amount of great music he made and great stories he is a part of could fill 100 podcasts. We attempt to condense it down to an hour or so of their favorite songs and favorite times with Virgil. It is our sincere hope that you go away from listening to this with a fuller understanding of who Virgil was and with a deeper knowledge of the music he played and inspired.

The team here at 561 music sends their sincere condolences to the friends and family of Virgil who disappeared into the ocean never to be found on Sunday May 11th 2024. His spirit will live on with us and in the hearts of those who knew him and loved him.
