Biography

“This Time” it’s Troy Shondell — the man with a voice that makes you remember where you were and who you were slow dancing with when they were playing his songs. One cold Sunday night on February 1, 1959, Troy and his band were entertaining at a club in Davenport, Iowa when just before closing a group walked in, sat down, and sent a note to the stage. The note asked Troy to acknowledge them and do a song from their show. A young nervous Troy was very familiar with the artists and sang the request, “That’ll Be The Day”. The request was from the now famous show that appeared in Clear Lake, Iowa February 2, 1959 starring Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper, in which the three famous stars were killed when their plane crashed following the show at the Surf Ballroom. Troy believes he was probably the last artist they ever saw perform outside of their own group. So “This Time” take a journey into his “official” Web Site.
