For years, the Surf Ballrrom was a dancing destination for entire North IOWA Area. Now the Surf offers concerts, and dancing to please every generation. It is a fun place to visit with memorabilia from the Surf history. It was restored a few years ago to bring back some of the original grandeur.
The Surf Ballroom is a treasure that should not be missed on a visit to Clear Lake. It maintains the original 1940's booths but, of course, has upgraded lighting and sound equipment. It is truly amazing to observe how many extremely well-known performers have played the Surf. I saw Sara Evans' Christmas show in December and a local band from... 更多
this was our 1st time at the Ballroom. This is a magnificent venue filled with some of the greatest rock and roll history, outside of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The concert was great!
Step back into time! They have restored the ballroom to the way it looked in the 50's. It is a small rock n roll museum, with pictures, artifacts, etc. You step into the dressing room and look for where the entertainers autographed the wall. You sit at a both in the ballroom and you can almost envision what it must... 更多
Good organization--got the long line in very efficiently. Must say, I don't like the "ticket system" for getting drinks. Makes for two more lines in which to stand.
Pretty cool place to visit. Lots of history, and lots to look at inside. Doesn't have to take a ton of time if you are in a rush either. Kind of fun to look around though, if one is able. Bar service isn't fantastic, but you don't go there for that really I suppose.
Wonderful tribute to Buddy Holley, Jp "The Big Bopper" Richardson and Ritchie Valens. I found myself wondering what these 3 men would have accomplished in the music world had they lived! Very sad they died so young. Interesting tidbit: Waylon Jennings was a member of the band and originally scheduled to fly with Buddy Holley who chartered the plane to... 更多
An Aussie couple on an extended road trip, we visited Clear Lake specifically for the Buddy Holly history - the Surf Ballroom and the crash site. As it turned out, the Surf Ballroom was the absolute highlight of our US trip. The place is amazing, a trip back to the 1950's and the whole building "oozes" music history. The museum/memorabilia... 更多
The Surf has been restored to early '50's glory, and there are tons of pictures, autographs, and other rock music memorabilia in the museum/bar part of the building. Stroll the dance floor, stand on the stage, and study the autographed wall in the green room to your heart's content for a mere $5. This is the final concert site for... 更多
Enjoyed the Surf Ballroom! Great history of rock and roll and of of course the day the music died about Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper.
