Quad City Historian Seeking Buddy Holly Photos

Dear Quad-City Rock ‘n’ Rollers,   I am Buddy Holly historian and researcher on the lookout for any fans out there that possibly attended one of his very last shows at the famous Capitol Theatre in Davenport, IA on January 29th, 1959. Four days later, his plane crashed soon after a show in Clear Lake, IA killing him, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper. Don McLean immortalized that moment as “The Day The Music Died” in his rock anthem American Pie. This Davenport stop also happens to be the only show where no photos has surfaced from…yet!   Please reach out to me if you, or someone... Read More

(Call (309) 786-7733, ext. 2 for tickets and showtimes.) I’ve honestly never seen a show quite like this at Circa before, and I mean that as a compliment. It’s just so different looking and feeling from most of the stuff that hits their stage that it’s both exhilarating and... Read More
