The Shadows, who were originally known as Bobby Vee and the Shadows, made their first public appearance at the Moorhead Armory February 3, 1959 in place of Buddy Holly. The group went on to world-wide fame with four gold records and $13 million in record sales. The original band broke up in 1964, but was revived by original member Dick Dunkirk for a performance at the Mid-America Music Hall of Fame for their induction in 2005. After a great response to their show, the group began performing around the Midwest and have been rated as one of the top tribute shows in America! With the recent retirement of former lead singer Bobby Vee, they are determined to keep the music of that era alive!
