Mission and Values
The mission of the Valley Music Hall of Fame is to seek out those exceptional musicians, writers, producers, promoters and educators, both past & present, who have contributed to our musical cornucopia and honor them with induction into the Valley Music Hall of Fame.
California’s Central Valley has long been noted for its agriculture. A seemingly infinite variety of crops are grown here and shipped around the globe to feed worldwide populations. Yet there is another vital Central Valley crop that has gone relatively unnoticed and under-appreciated, one that nourishes the spirit as much as the food nourishes the body: our music.
Rising from the fertile soil of “The Valley” comes a harvest as rich in culture and variety as anything produced in the fields. Pick a genre –Country, Blues, Jazz, Rock, Pop, Classical, or any of the music representing the Valley’s cross-cultural tapestry, and you’ll find someone here who plays it, writes it, produces or teaches it at an exceptionally high level!
The desire to locate and honor this homegrown talent is what motivated a group of musically inclined individuals to band together and create the Valley Music Hall of Fame.
