Rollin' back to his roots
Luke Hansen, Juda, holds out a few of his more prized Tommy James and the Shondells records, from his collection of more than 4,000 records Wednesday afternoon. James has roots in Monroe, having lived here from 1956 to 1959, when his parents managed the Eugene Hotel on the downtown Square. Hansen will be in attendance as James returns to the state for a sold-out concert at Ho Chunk Casino in Wisconsin Dells. (Times photo: Anthony Wahl)
Tommy James returns to Wisconsin this Saturday, March 9, to play a sold-out concert at Ho Chunk Casino in the Wisconsin Dells. It was in Monroe that James discovered rock music, saw Elvis on TV for the first time and learned to play the guitar.
