Rock and roll
The earliest rock and roll band from Fremont, Nebraska was The Nomads, followed by The Sneakers, The Fugitives, The Invaders and The Brackmen. The long-running popular Haywood-Wakefield Band is maybe the region's most influential. Doug Campbell from Lincoln, Little Joe & the Ramrods, Don Sohl & the Roadrunners and Ron Thompson & the Broughams were also influential.
One of Omaha's most famous exports is the influential surf band The Chevrons (U.S. band), who were voted Omaha's most popular band in 1966. Other 1960s bands include The Echos, 7 Legends, Velvet Haze, Little Denny Wonder, Freedom Road and The Beautiful People.
