Love for the community

By Tommie Huffman

Reymon Murphy, or Rey, is the go-to guy if you want to organize a community event or get your band heard by a larger audience in Tucson, Arizona. Rey is a bandmate, a community organizer, a father, and a friend to many. He never dwells on his difficult and sometimes tumultuous past, but instead, he is often the first one to start a fundraiser, clothing drive, or just sit and listen when someone needs to talk.
