  • The Uh Huhs, winners of the 2016 Arkansas Times Showcase.

Next year marks the 25th anniversary of the Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase, inaugurated in 1993 by the now-defunct Spectrum Weekly and handed over to the Times around 1997. The winner that year was Substance, a Towncraft-era band from Sherwood whose members would later join Big Cats and Red 40, and whose track "Do Nothing King" appears on an LP compilation (also named "Towncraft") documenting the '90s punk scene in Little Rock.

The list of champions thereafter is as follows: Ho-Hum, Pokerface, Ashtray Babyhead, Big Cats, Big John Miller & The Direction, Brenda & Ellis, Big Silver, Mojo Depot, Runaway Planet, Salty Dogs, Grandpa's Goodtime Fandango, The Odds, Hannah Blaylock & Eden's Edge, Cooper's Orbit, 607, Velvet Kente, Brother Andy & His Big Damn Mouth, Tyrannosaurus Chicken, Holy Shakes, The Sound of the Mountain, Mad Nomad, Ghost Bones and The Uh Huhs.
