Green Bay loves Buddy, Ritchie, Bopper

On February 1, 1959, Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper played the Riverside Ballroom in Green Bay. The next night, all three were killed in a plane crash. It was "the day the music died," according to Don McLean.

This year marked the 50th anniversary of their Green Bay concert. For several years, there has been a reenactment concert.
