The 2015 Induction Ceremony is
As always, it was a great party. Our
opening act was a group of children from Vermillion County called
the Coon Holler Kids, and they put on a terrific show! Immediately following the ceremony,
the inductees took the stage and put on a superb show. Dozens
of people went home with raffle and silent auction items.
Once again, we collected a lot of canned goods that were sent to
local charities. We also donated leftover food.
Be sure to check out the photos from the induction ceremony in the Photo
Galleries section, as well as new pictures in the Local Bands and
Local Musicians galleries.

The 2015 induction ceremony is
scheduled for Sunday, February 8, 2015 at the Terre Haute V.F.W. Post 972,
located just north of Wabash Avenue on 12th Street.
As always, there will be food, live music, raffles, door prizes,
drawings and a silent auction. Food service will start at noon and the festivities will last until
at least 6:00 p.m.
Tickets are $12 per person, which includes your meal.
This is a small increase from past years, but it is the first time
we have raised ticket prices since the induction ceremonies were
re-started in 2006. This is our only fund-raising event for
2015, and given that the cost of food, advertising, tee shirts,
etc., have risen every year, we finally reached a point where we
were forced to raise ticket prices.
Tickets are now available, and can be purchased from Hall of Fame Board
members or at The Music Shoppe, Rick Waggoner's State Farm Insurance, The Conservatory of Music,
or the V.F.W.
If you are unable to locate tickets, call or email us for
assistance. Tickets are limited, so be sure to get yours
early. Don't miss out on one of the best parties of the year!!
A note to our members: The
Hall of Fame has grown from a small group that gathered once a year
at BJ's Lounge to an organization that not only recognizes the
accomplishments of musicians in the Wabash Valley, but strives to
make a difference in our community. As a part of this, we
promote live music and provide assistance to organizations who serve
the disadvantaged in our area.
The Hall gives well over $1,000 back to the community each year in
the form of donations. We also put a considerable amount of
money back into the local economy with the events that we hold.
However, we could do so much more with your support.
This is YOUR Hall of Fame, you are a member. Along with the
honor of being inducted comes a responsibility to support the
organization you joined. The Hall is committed to giving back
to the Wabash Valley, and we need your help to do this. Please
attend and participate in our functions. Not only does this
help to make our events a success, but your purchase of raffle
tickets, silent auction items and memorabilia helps to fund our
A note to our candidates:
Please take advantage of our events to show the Hall the person
behind the questionnaire. Attend the Induction Ceremonies.
Participate in the jam session at the picnics. When the Hall
has a chance to get to know you and hear you demonstrate your
skills, it makes the election process go much smoother.
We hope to see you at the 2015
