The Stomp will feature and impressive line-up of songwriters and musicians from years past. Scheduled to appear are performers like Scotty Moore, Robert Jr. Lockwood, Nokie Edwards (of the Ventures), Archie Bell, Link Wray, Betty Harris, Lonnie Brooks as Guitar Jr., Nathaniel Mayer, Mando and The Chili Peppers, Johnny Farina (of Santo & Johnny), Blowfly, Eddie Bo, Arch Hall, Jr., Eddy "The Chief" Clearwater, and many others.
