    The Fruitport Pavilion burned down, early in the morning of January 4, 1963. Not in 1960.

    I am doing research on Buddy Holly’s concert dates in the Muskegon MI area. The 1958 Summer Dance Party lists July 6, 1958 as the date. I also hear that July 10, 1958 is listed. Are there accurate sources that I can rely on here? Thank you.

      The ad says “Coming Thursday July 10 In Person Buddy Morrow” I bet this ad was July 5th, as its says “Tomorrow at 9:00 pm In Person Buddy Holly” Which was July 6th, 1958 which corresponds with your Summer Dance Party List. Could we get a copy of that List, Sounds interesting. Doug Taylor – Admin
