In 2008, we began an effort to bring nation recording acts to the residentts of Kokomo. We wanted these concerts to be free so everyone could enjoy them. Through the generous help and cooperation with the City of Kokomo and the many festivals, organizers, sponsors, volunteers and donors we have been successful in accomplishing this goal. It seems just like yesterday that we put the first "big" act on the state but in fact, that was 2008. Each year, we try to take it to the next level, continuing to bring great bands for free to the stage. As we look back, we realized that we've brought a lot of really great acts to our fair city for the community to enjoy.

Heywood Banks, John Ford Coley, Howard Jones and The Little River Band
