Laramar Ballroom Ft Dodge, Iowa
This is another of the "classics" when it comes to Iowa Ballrooms, with the key exception that this famed ballroom is still open and operating. Along with such ballrooms as the Val Air, The Roof Garden, Matters, The Coliseum, and the Danceland, the Laramar'Plamor was a key facility in bringing rock and roll music to Iowa Teens. Such legendary names as Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper, the Everly Brothers, Conway Twitty, Bobby Vee, the Trashmen, Dee Jay & the Runaways, Dale & the Devonaires rocked this historic ballroom.
