The Birthplace of Hoosier Rock & Roll
April 08, 2021
Celebrate Indiana Avenue's legacy as the birthplace of Hoosier rock and roll. The first rock and roll concerts in the Hoosier state were in the neighborhood, including early performances from Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and Fats Domino. The Avenue scene also produced some of Indiana’s first homegrown rock and roll stars, including Bobby Lewis, Thurston Harris, and The Counts.
