It'll be a superb show if it goes ahead though. They often have fifties stars playing the festival but this will be the first time they'll have a major original I think. It's like when Little Richard did the Chippenham festival. I do hope it happens.

From 1958 to 1965 Jerry played the Surf often...sometimes 2 or 3 times a year. I've been there and it's basically the same as it was in the 50s. 8x10 autographed photos of all the Stars who played there line a big wall. In recent years Jack Scott, Jason D. Williams, and Carl Perkins played there. Conway Twitty played regarly at the Surf from 1958 to 1965, and Fats Domino often played there.

I was there in Fen '07, Dale Hawkins, The Crickets and The Cleftones played. It's a Rock & Roll shrine, I saw Jerry's picture on the wall of fame.

Shit, if Jerry hadn't got such a bad record with cancelled shows I'd consider another visit there for Feb '11.

Kevin Montgomery, Tommy Allsup, and Johnny Rogers perform at The Surf Ballroom for the 50 Winters Later week. Tommy was Buddy's guitar player, and became a part of rock 'n' roll folklore by famously flipping the coin with Ritchie Valens for his seat on the plane. Kevin's father was Buddy's first musical partner. Here they harken back to the days of Buddy and Bob.

This year’s version of the event will feature a performance by the king of rockabilly, Jerry Lee Lewis.
The Winter Dance Party celebrates the music of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson.
The musicians and pilot Roger Peterson were killed when their plane crashed shortly after takeoff from the Mason City Municipal Airport on Feb. 3, 1959.
Lewis is scheduled to appear during the Saturday evening concert.
Lewis was one of the musicians who created rock ’n’ roll in Memphis, Tenn., at Sun Records in the 1950s, and at nearly 75 years of age is still going strong.
Lewis is still touted today as the “wild man” of rock ’n’ roll. He is best known for his piano-pounding hits from the late ’50s, including “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” and “Great Balls of Fire.”
In 1986, Lewis became one of the first to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with Holly, The Everly Brothers, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley.
Other featured acts tonight, Friday and Saturday are Gary Lewis & The Playboys, Flash Cadillac, Tommy Allsup, Sonny West, The Original Clovers, the Collins Kids, Little Peggy March, Roy Head and the Fleetwoods.
The three nights of concerts are sold out, but there are a number of related activities scheduled that have tickets available.

From a FB group, passed to me via Peter Checksfield:

GREAT show tonight! Fleetwoods were great, Roy Head was fantastic, Peggy March was awesome.....Jerry Lee was supposed to do an hour but only did 30 min. I guess he has a cold so cut it short but most didn't mind. Pictures to follow in ...the next couple of days, though I did NOT take any of Jerry Lee (lost my spot by the stage) but might get some from a friend. FUN FUN FUN night!

Now, it seems it was a good show....hopefully more info and pics soon.
