The Surf Ballroom & Museum has announced Rock and Roll legend Chuck Berry is among the artists who are scheduled to appear at the 2012 Winter Dance Party event, scheduled for Feb. 1-4, 2012.
Berry, also known as “The Father of Rock & Roll”, gained success by watching the audience’s reaction and playing accordingly, putting his listeners’ amusement above all else. For this reason, tunes like “Johnny B. Goode,” “Maybellene” and “Memphis” have become anthems to an integrated American youth and pop culture.
Berry will perform Saturday night, along with John Mueller’s Winter Dance Party, The Bobbettes, Sid King & The Five Strings.
