Winter Dance Party @ Surf Ballroom
Jan 30 @ 6:30 pm

Every year since 2009’s 50 Winters Later concert, we have fielded more and more requests from contemporary artists who have been influenced by Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. ‘The Big Bopper’ Richardson. The event has transitioned to a celebration of their legacies and a showcase proving that the music did not die, but has continued to spread to this day. We are proud to host this annual tradition and can’t wait to see how these legends leave their mark upon our Winter Dance Party fans. Thursday’s lineup: The Kingsmen, Joey Dee, Little Peggy March and Austin Allsup. Friday’s lineup: Bowzer’s Rock & Doo Wop Sock Hop featuring Bowzer from Sha Na Na fame and his band, the Stingrays; Rocky & The Rollers; and special guests Johnny Contardo formerly of Sha Na Na and Original Comet Joey Ambrose.  Saturday’s lineup: Marty Stuart, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys, Albert Lee, Headcat 13 and special appearances by Narvel Felts, Linda Gail Lewis and Sonny West. The three-day pass, good for all Winter Dance Party activities at the Surf, will be $135. New this year: Individual night general admission tickets, if available. https://www.surfballroom.com/boxoffice/
