Irving "Scacy" Haywood. Glenarden resident (Washington D.C. Area) Irving Haywood said he has had a number of professions over the years — auto repairman, photographer and maker of decorative tobacco pipes.

After a successful surgery gave him a new lease on life, Scacy decided to return to his first passion: music. Haywood, who served on the Glenarden City Council from 2007 though 2011, said he was in a number of singing groups in the Washington, D.C., area, starting in junior high school. But in the late 1960s, he formed Scacy and the Sound Service, an early funk and go-go band that he said grew to be the local opening act for funk band War and singer Stevie Wonder.
