The 6th Annual Iowa Blues Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held this year on Sunday, November 28th, 2004, at Blues On Grand, the Home of the IBHOF. Always a very memorable event, this year's ceremony will honor the 2004 IBHOF inductees - Ronnie Brewer (AKA Ronald Moore), Tom "T-Bone" Giblin, Michael "Hawkeye" Herman, and the late Ernest "Speck" Redd - for their significant musical contributions through the years.

The doors will open at 5 p.m. with free food provided by Jesse James' J.J. Catering beginning at 5:30. The cover charge for this great event will be $8, with the money going to the inductees and the IBHOF fund.

Live music will be provided by the Iowa Blues Hall of Fame Revue, featuring IBHOF members Sam Salomone (Blue Band) on organ and Gilbert Davis (Sumpin' Doo) on bass. The rest of the band will consist of Jon East (Johnny & the Rectifiers) on guitar, Dave Jenks (Scotty & the Wingtips, Brother T-Bone Groove) on guitar and sax, Nathan Peoples (Blue Band) on sax, and Mark Monroe (Fat Tuesday & the Greasefire Horns) on drums. Don "T-Bone" Erickson (the coordinator of the ceremony) will also be on hand to play some guitar. Don will share emcee duties with Tom Gary, the founder of the IBHOF. The music will begin at 6 p.m. with the band backing four different featured vocalists, all members of the IBHOF - Big Mike Edwards (Tough Enough!), Gary Jackson, George Davis (Sumpin' Doo), and Jimmy "Midnite Cowboy" Pryor (Fat Tuesday & the Greasefire Horns).

Then the induction of the Class of 2004 and presentation of the plaques will begin around 7 p.m., with performances by the new inductees along with the IBHOF Revue band. This will be followed by an all-star jam the rest of the night. It promises to be a fun night, filled with wonderful moments and memories.
