The Surf Ballroom (the Surf) is a Historic Rock and Roll Landmark at 460 North Shore Drive, Clear Lake, Iowa. The Surf is closely associated with the event known colloquially as “The Day the Music Died” – early rock and roll stars Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J. P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson gave their last performances at the Surf on February 2, 1959 as part of the “Winter Dance Party Tour”.
