Musicians warmed up with the tranquil Eagles tune "Peaceful Easy Feeling" prior to this year's Iowa Rock 'n' Roll induction festivities. This was the first ceremonial weekend for the Iowa Rock 'n' Roll Music Association in its new location near the Iowa Maritime Museum. After Saturday's traditional parade, Association President Ralph Kluseman recognized the musical roots laid down by John Senn and the community support that followed. "Moving forward, we're as vital as ever," Kluseman told the crowd. The Saturday gathering was full of family activities, performances, classic cars and some musical instruction by several inductees. Inductees were officially given their awards Sunday afternoon and were followed by the annual induction concert.
