We're already mid-January. Time to start thinking about the Winter Dance Party.

But First: A Correction. 
THE DOORS will not be opening for TODD ECKART as I originally announced. Rather, the doors will open at 5:00 p.m. at the Sports Garden in Canal Park with the show commencing at 5:30. BORN TOO LATE is the band that will open for Todd Eckart's Tribute to the Music of Buddy Holly and the Late 50's.

The event is 
Sunday January 27
@the Sports Garden

This is the 60th anniversary of that fateful Winter Dance Party Tour where Buddy Holly rolled into Duluth with a busload of stars that included Waylon Jennings, Tommy Allsup, drummer Carl Bunch, the Big Bopper (J.P. Richardson), Ritchie Valens and Dion and the Belmonts.
