The 2013 Induction Ceremony is
As with every preceding year, this was a great party! Our
opening act was a group of young men called Hype War Machine, and
they put on a great 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.
And we had a special guest this year. Toby Myers, former bass player for John
Cougar Mellencamp, accompanied some children from Brown County
Junior High School to sell tickets on an autographed John Mellencamp
guitar. Not only did he attend the ceremony, he
also got up and jammed with the inductees!
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.

A message to local area bands:
The Hall of Fame does what it can to promote live music in the
Wabash Valley. As a part of this effort, we offer a Local Band
Registry on this web site (click the Community Page link at the
left, then the Local Band Registry on the right).
We are contacted fairly regularly by people wanting information on local bands.
We direct them to the Local Band Registry. Want your band name
to reach these people? Add your band to our
registry. There's no cost. Just send us the name of your
band, styles of music played, and how to contact you, and we will
add your band to the registry.
