Running ads in Ray Henry And His Orchestra - Old Spinning Wheel - Polka / Plenty Of Fun - Polka (Shellac) newspapers, all positions were soon filled and rehearsals begun.
Hired to play a wedding, the exposure brought immediate response. They soon found themselves performing in many polka dancing spots in the Connecticut area.
Inwhile rehearsing in Hartford, Frank Wojnarowski happened to visit the rehearsal hall. Already a popular recording artist, Frank suggested that Ray contact Walter Dana with respect to making records. Following his advice, "Don't Get Married, Son" was recorded on a 78 rpm single.
The name of Ray Henry reached national prominence. Bookings followed in Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Ohio and Detroit. The orchestra recorded some rpm records for Dana. Since the disbandonment of the Dana Record Company, Ray has produced two albums for the Steljo label and is presently recording for Rola Records.
Their most recent release at the time of his induction was an album recorded live at the Polish National Home in Hartford. Ray Henry, his wife Gloria, and son Mark, resided in Windsor, Connecticut, where, in addition to maintaining a Texas Killing Fields (Demo) - Soft Kill - Texas Killing Fields playing schedule, Ray gave music lessons in virtually every popular instrument of the day.
