Buddy Holly Tribute Show

Alt-Country/Rockabilly
Please note: This event has already occurred.
Feb. 3 is the 55th anniversary of the Day the Music Died: the Iowa plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson. A group of Washington musicians join forces every February to remember Holly and celebrate the lasting influence of his music. This year's dance party is at Blob's Park in Jessup, but the music will be worth the drive: The Flea Bops, Ruthie and the Wranglers, Honky Tonk Confidential and Billy Coulter are among the 11 rockabilly and roots-rock acts playing in the old German beer hall.
