An Eastern Iowa radio legend and a musical duo headline the inductees for this year’s Iowa Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Hampton Road are based in Alburnett and inspired by bands such as Chicago and Blood, Sweat and Tears. After a 38-year hiatus from performing, Perry and Kathy Keating, who have day jobs as an HVAC technician and an office manager, respectively, will be getting their band back together to perform a pair of reunion shows, of sorts.

It will take place this weekend, August 4-5 at the Mississippi Moon Bar and Casino in Dubuque. Tickets will be $10 per night or $15 for both and the shows will start at 5:30 p.m. For more information on these charity shows for both Friday and Saturday nights, visit the event website.

Other inductees into the Iowa Rock & Roll Hall of Fame include “Captain” Steve Soboroff of KCJJ radio in Iowa City, local music legends Karie Skogman–who will be honored with the “Women Who Rock” award, and Craig Erickson; Iowa band the Surf Zombies and more. All will be enshrined over Labor Day weekend, September 1-3 in Arnold’s Park .

The Iowa Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is an outstanding institution entering its 21st year honoring local musicians with roots right here in our home state.

If you ‘d like to attend the Hall of Fame event in Arnold’s Park, contact the museum director Sheryl Davis, (712)-330-0889, info@iowarocknroll.com.
