Music in the Junction | Standing Hampton

The best concert series in Central Iowa is in Valley Junction!

They’ve been around awhile. Over 20 years. They’ve played over 1200 gigs at casinos, festivals, fairs and affairs, weddings, corporate events and smoky bars. Headlined RAGBRAI overnights and opened for national acts including Cheap Trick, Night Ranger and Eddie Money. But most importantly, they’ve made a lot of people happy. Thousands of fans, and would be fans that had no idea who they were listening to- energetically nodding their heads, tapping their feet, dancing with wild abandon, or just listening wide-eyed as this musical spectacle of one gal and four guys rocked their world, took away their troubles for an evening, and brought back the summer of 1978 (or you can fill in the year) in all it’s nostalgic glory.

They could easily brag they’re the best party band in Iowa, or in the midwest, or lay claim to some other geographical area; maybe mention they’re the utmost tribute act run amok -performing the best songs of all artists from the 70’s and 80’s For now, let’s just say Standing Hampton plays some damn good music that people like to hear, and they’re good at it. And since they have a great time doing it, they’re pretty great entertainers too.

Music in the Junction is the place to be in central Iowa on Thursday nights May through September. Railroad Park and the beverage garden opens at 5:00 pm with live music from 6:00-8:30 pm. Join us for a great season in Historic Valley Junction!

All Historic Valley Junction Foundation community events are free to attend, with food and beverage available throughout.

Join us for our signature event series in Historic Valley Junction – our weekly Farmers Market and Music in the Junction concert series.
