The Ponderosa Stomp

The Ponderosa Stomp Foundation's primary annual event, the internationally revered Ponderosa Stomp, exists to celebrate, pay tribute to, and teach the cultural significance of the unsung heroes and heroines of rock-n-roll, rhythm & blues and other forms of American roots music while they are still alive. The Stomp festival and its year-round activities provide both a voice and career revival to overlooked sidemen, session musicians and other influential pioneers whose contributions have shaped American culture for over 50 years.  Through its vital collaboration with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and the Louisiana State Museum, the Stomp Conference presents and records the stories of some of American music’s most treasured architects.
