The Buddy Holly Show

The Buddy Holly Show Buddy Holly set the template for the standard rock and roll band.

 

Two guitars, bass, and drums. He was also one of the first in the genre to write, produce,  and perform his own songs, and is still considered to be "the single most influential creative force in early rock and roll. Buddy Holly died during The Winter Dance Party in 1959. His career spanned only 18 months.  Also lost on that fateful tour in 1959 were Ritchie Valens and J.P. (The Big Bopper) Richardson. Dion Dimucci, later to achieve world wide fame as 'Dion and The Belmonts' was also part of the tour but declined the offer of a place on the plane.

 

This Show offers so much, from 'Buddy' alone supported by a five piece band, to a 'full on' presentation featuring the characters 'Ritchie Valens' and 'J.P. (The Big Bopper) Richardson'. In addition a superb portrayal of Dion opening the show with a favourite tune 'Teenager In Love' that sets the tone for a wonderful evenings entertainment.
