In 1969, North Hampton earned a place in rock and roll lore when confusion of the town's name with that of Northampton Township, Ohio caused the rock group Vanilla Fudge to arrive at North Hampton for a rock concert instead of the Blossom Amphitheater. After learning that they were nearly 200 miles from the concert venue (near Cleveland, the band then charted a plane to fly them to the gig and arrived four hours late. Vocalist Mark Stein told a reporter later, "You understand, man, that the promoter kept telling our agent about Blossom Center in Northampton Township. Only we were up in Montreal, and looking at a map to find the place and sure enough — there's this town, North Hampton, near Dayton somewhere. We figured, that's a weird place for a concert, but if that's where peoples' heads are at in Ohio, fine — that's where we'll wail."
