      If there was ever a shrine to 1950s rock 'n roll, the Surf Ballroom has to be it. On this page, I've put a few pictures I've taken at the Surf. I've also added a link to the ballroom's own website There you will find everything you will want to know about the Surf. What a wonderful magical place suspended in time..

             Another great site to visit is John Linquist's page. John has chronicled all the Surf tributes and can tell you what guests appeared therefrom 1970 onward!
