Rock & Roll Rewind

It’s no secret that Dubuque and the surrounding area has a rich and vibrant live music scene. Pick up any issue of 365ink and look at the live music listings for any given weekend. Not only will there be multiple choices on Friday and Saturday nights (not to mention week nights) but even on Sundays, a music lover might have a dozen or more opportunities to find live music around the Tri-States. (We actually counted 20 live music events on a recent summer Sunday!)  

While part of this phenomenon is no doubt a result of the area’s general vibrancy and economic health, the richness of the current Dubuque music scene can be traced back decades to the 1960s, ‘70s, and ‘80s, when high school garage bands rocked teen dances and gymnasiums and rock, blues, and country bands entertained in all sorts of bars, taverns, and clubs. Whatever happened to those bands?
