Last week I posted about our winter time visit to The Surf Ballroom and Museum in Clear Lake, Iowa. It is a pretty amazing place but I saved the best part, in my humble opinion, for this post.
We did not even know that this existed when we have been to The Surf for various concerts including BB King and Chicago. But it is there and the very best part of the entire place. I could have spent hours in the “green room” alone.
For decades performers have been leaving their mark on the walls, the ceilings and even the sinks of the green room . I can not imagine the rush that those performers must feel to know how many wonderful musical acts have gone before them on the very stage that they will be performing on OR those that will follow.
History has been made here and I appreciate the work of all of the volunteers and those associated with the preservation of this fabulous venue. May the music never truly die at The Surf.
As you scroll through the pictures take note of the ones that have red marker highlighting certain names. These are some that are probably more well known performers although I would have highlighted a few more. Enjoy.
