Duluth, Minn. (NNCNOW.com) -- More than 25 Duluth bands paid tribute to another band that started here in the Northland.

The band "Low" kicked into high gear in Duluth 20 years ago.

The concert was organized by Sacred Heart Music center to raise money for the Music Resource Center in the Duluth Armory. The center offers an after school music program.

The bands that paid tribute to "Low" included Cars and Trucks, Loin or Gazelle and Marcus Matthews.

One artist has known the band since the beginning.

"We had an apartment at one of the old grade schools in town with a bunch of us bohemians and they were rehearsing in their apartment so they had to play quietly and so I think their sound kind of came from that a little bit at least," said Baci who is performing with Tangier 57.

Mayor Don Ness came up with the idea to have Duluth bands honor Low and gave the band the key to the city.
