  1. Beautiful work at the Chemainus Theatre. Your investment in The Buddy Holly persona is appreciated by all who have seen the performance. Thanks Stuart

  2. I was wondering if you are for hire for a private party. My husband is turning 60 and we have been to several of your shows. It would be such a surprise for me to hire you for about an hour to come into our home for a simple display of your amazing talent. We live in Surrey. We are aiming for March 21 but any day between now and April 10 would be great. I will work around your schedule. Please let me know the cost and your availability.
    Thanks, Donna Moore 604802-4227

  3. I attended your show in Victoria on Sunday Dec 18 with. You blew me away.
    I am one the biggest Beatle fans in the world but I’m afraid you stole the show.
    Your energy and enjoyment of Buddy Holly was contagious. I was so disappointed when I couldn’t buy the CD that night. So I’ve ordered two on line and hope they get here fast.
    Buddy Holly would be proud! Vancouver Island is.
    Thank you, thank you.
    PS:
    You and Molly sound so wonderful together. Do it more often.

    1. Hi Debbie!

      I’m just seeing this now! My web skills need some work… I’m better on facebook. I’m so glad you enjoyed my part of the show so much. The Beatles are my first love too, but it’s neat to learn how much they owe Buddy especially in their early days.
      The CDs are on the way! I hope you enjoy them.

      All the best!

  4. Fabulous impromptu show on Friday …. Im the woman front row centerish from Niagara Falls … back in the day I WAS Runaround Sue in high school when DJ Dick Biondi played Buddy Holly on WKBW. I’m an astrologer/writer and thnking about doing a chart and article on Buddy Holly … I’d like to do a synastry/comparison with Buddy’s chart and yours chart because you are such an embodiment of his energies it if very big time … there’s an astro convention here in Chicago next week, I’d “publish” it in a leaflet at the registration desk with an ad for the Play (which I will see with the replacement ticket)
