Last year Silver Laughter was lucky enough to be chosen for the class of 2014 in the Iowa R&R Music Association’s Hall of Fame. This year the choices have been made, and no bands from the Quad Cities were nominated (to my knowledge).
One of the biggest influences on Silver Laughter and The Contents Are: bands was The Night People. As I have stated elsewhere on this site, Mike Stroehle is cousin to Jon and Kim Ludtke (and Rob Dahms is a distant one as he is a cousin to Mike).
The push is on to get this very popular and influential group from the 1960’s inducted into the Iowa R&R Hall of Fame for 2016.
If you know about their contribution to the music scene in Davenport, IA, please go here to make the nomination!
