This year's Ponderosa Stomp featured "Architects of American Music" including the likes of The Sonics, Swamp Dogg, Ty Wagner, Gaunga Dyns, and plenty more. Apart from the live concert over the weekend, the Stomp also featured a Record Show and Music History Conference hosted at the Wyndham Riverfront from October 3-5th. The Record Show complimented their motto "Celebrating the Unsung Heroes of American Music" featuring vinyl only, mostly used, spanning across genres from Soul to Garage Rock to a section dedicated to yodeling from a vinyl store in Tennessee. 

The Stomp brought in crowds from all around, for two nights dedicated to showcasing artists whose music has only grown sweeter in time. The event brought a flashback of maryjanes, floral button-downs, and times when producing music wasn't as easy as today, but it certainly had soul.

You can still catch Gaunga Dyns this month at Old Point Bar: 10/10 & 10/31
