      About the Norman & Vi Petty Rock and Roll Museum:


      Clovis’ rich musical heritage is showcased in Clovis’ own Norman and Vi Petty Rock and Roll Musuem. Located downstairs from the Chamber of Commerce at 105 E. Grand Ave, the Museum hosts a wide variety of memorabilia from the early days of rock and roll. Come see how a record was made, how some of the most dynamic rock & roll songs were recorded, and learn about some of rock music’s greatest legends, all in the same place!
      The Museum is designed to complement the Norman Petty Studios on 7th Street where musicians such as Buddy Holly, Buddy Knox, Roy Orbison and other early rock & roll greats recorded their hits. The entrance to the Museum features an oversized 50’s Fender Stratocaster – the guitar that Buddy Holly made popular.

      The Museum displays feature working equipment from the studios, including the original mixing board used during Buddy Holly’s recordings. Other items include memorabilia pertaining to the Norman Petty Studios and to the Pettys themselves, offering a behind-the-scenes look at their lives and careers. Even experts will discover something new, with never-before-seen artifacts and interesting back stories!

      The construction of the Museum is also unique. A recreation of two of the Studio’s rooms, as well as diner booths, lots of neon, and era-specific details will make visiting the Museum a uniquely fun learning experience!

       

      About the Norman Petty Studios

      The "Clovis Sound" made popular by such greats as Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison, was created and recorded in Clovis at the Norman Petty 7th Street Studio. Although it is no longer an active recording studio, the original equipment still resides there, and a visit will take you back in time to the grand days of rock 'n roll. Petty's golden ears helped dozens of popular country, rock, and pop musicians who recorded at the Norman Petty Studios-Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Buddy Knox, Waylon Jennings, Jimmy Gilmer and the Fireballs, Charlie Phillips, Jimmy Bowen, Johnny Duncan, Carolyn Hester, Chita Rivera, Brad Maule and many others.

      Inside the studios the large dangling microphones, the old control board with big round knobs, the clocks on the walls, the Coke machine, and the furnishings look much as they did in the late fifties when Buddy Holly came to record. Relive the Norman Petty legacy with a tour of the studio, meet The Roses and Tollettes (back-up singer for Buddy). Hear original music recordings that will take you back in time. This is a place you will never forget and treasure for the rest of your life. The studios are located at 1313 W. 7th St. Tours must be booked well in advance, please call the Chamber at 575.763.3435 for details
