|This is basically a labor of love conceived by myself to create an historical record of the rock and roll shows at the Hammond Civic Center. One by one I ended up including other area venues. We are however primarily focused on compiling a complete listing of all musical performances at the Civic Center as well as the Midway Ballroom in Cedar Lake.
Many thanks to Tom Lounges of Xrock Radio for his help and encouragement. I'd also like to thank Scott Rosenberg and Amanda Gass for their help promoting the site.
Many thanks to Adrian of Valparaiso for his many contributions and Tim Shockley for supplying HCC dates. And to Rinie of South Bend for his review. Last, but not least, my friends and family who also helped make this happen.
If anyone has anything they'd like to contribute please feel free to do so. Even if it is nothing more than a few sentences recalling a special night in your life.
Rock on Region Rats! We're not too old to rock n roll and sure as f*ck too young to die!
