Hall of Fame Founders

It is widely acknowledged that four people played a role in the creation of the Wabash Valley Musicians Hall of Fame - Bill Akers, Alva Grindle, Terry Haughee and Arley Price.  Bill and Alva are considered to be the primary founders of the Hall of Fame since they clearly led the efforts to form the Hall and invested the most time, effort and money into starting the Hall and keeping it in operation. We especially honor Alva, because without his resolve to keep the Hall operatiing, the organization would never have survived the closing of BJ's Lounge.  However, all four men made significant contributions to the Hall, and we are proud to acknowledge all of them as our Founding Fathers.

Hall of Fame Inductee Musical Biographies

The Hall of Fame is proud of our inductees and their accomplishments, and we would like for our inductees to be more than just a name on a plaque or a web site.  Therefore, we introduced a musical biography project and are encouraging our members to submit their information so that we can include them in this project.

If you are an inductee who has never filled out a questionnaire, or who filled out a questionnaire prior to 2017, please participate in this project by filling out a new questionnaire.  To do this, click here to print or download the questionnaire.  If you download and complete the form electronically, you can email it to us as instructed on the Contact us page.   If you print it and fill it out, either give it to a Board member or mail it to the address on the form.

If you are not an inductee, but can provide the necessary information about an inductee, we invite you to submit a questionnaire on their behalf, especially for inductees who may now be in the Band of Angels.

When you are finished, click your browser's Back button to return here.   When we receive your form, we will create a page for you like the ones below.

Please provide as much information as you can so that we will have enough to create a page for you.  If possible, include up to six (6) pictures to be posted on your page.

We realize that this is an ambitious project that will take a long time, and we may never get a biography for every one of our members, but we feel it is important to do what we can to keep the memory of our inductees alive.
