Craig Morrison, the concert’s organizer, is an ethnomusicologist who teaches a class at Concordia called "Rock and Roll and its Roots." The event began as an opportunity to bring the music of his class to the ears of his students. After three years the event grew from a one-act piece with Morrison’s band The Momentz into a multi-band spectacle of down-home sounds.

Standouts during the first set included rockabilly slappers like Midnight Shift and Blue Days, Black Nights and instantly-recognizable Holly standards like Everyday and Oh Boy, but it was the early part of the second set — an attempted reconstruction of highlights from Holly’s last show at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa — that was the masterstroke. The historical accuracy was impressive (How many people know that Holly opened his set that night with Gotta Travel On ?), but a dramatic sense of doom set in as hits by the Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens were exhumed. Songs influenced by Holly, covers that were hits for other artists and some of his final compositions drew the night to a conclusion, with touching, spirited versions of Wishing and It Doesn’t Matter Anymore among the highlights.

Heavily influenced by the Memphis, Tennessee’s music scene, Little Rock, Arkansas came into a humble music scene of its own, eventually churning out artists like rock band Evanescence. During the 1950s, country rock and roll icon (and Arkansas native) Johnny Cash made a name for himself as a music legend with a career that spanned up until his death in 2003. 1950s Arkansas also churned out acts like Country Music Hall of Fame legend Conway Twitty and country singer-songwriter Charlie Rich. Country rock musician Glen Campbell, a four-time Grammy Award winner also hailed from Arkansas, and even hosted his own variety show called on CBS. During the 1960s, Grammy Award winning jazz saxophonist and bandleader Pharoah Sanders gained popularity as well, as his avant-garde sound made a positive impact on the national music scene and other musicians like John Coltrane. During the late 1980s and 1990s, acts like Christian metal band Living Sacrifice, sludge metal band Rwake, and hip-hop soul singer-songwriter Ne-Yo also emerged from the Little Rock area. The millennium introduced performers like indie rock band American Princes, Christian punk band The Wedding, and country singer-songwriter Justin Moore.
