On February 2nd, 1959, Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.B. "The Big Bopper" Richardson performed at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa. The plane crash that occurred hours later claimed the lives of all three artists and changed music history forever. Using information gathered from documentaries, books, and the memories of musicians at the show, tonight's concert will recreate Holly's last show with utmost accuracy and attention to detail. Featuring classic songs like "That'll Be The Day," "Peggy Sue," "It's So Easy," "La Bamba," "Oh Donna," and "Chantilly Lace," and more.

Venue Description: A throwback to the fabled days of New York nightclubs, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill features top-caliber music stars and an American Continental menu with a Southern flair. The Showcase Room has video screens and state-of-the-art sound, table seating, a bar where you can snack and listen, and a dance floor. The Beatles Brunch is offered every Saturday at noon (doors at 11am), and doors open for the Gospel Brunch every Sunday at 12:30pm with music at 1:30pm.
