Buddy is Brought Back to Life

Via the Cowichan Valley Citizen

Buddy is brought back to life

  • By Lexi Bainas, The Citizen May 25, 2011

His face is well known to a Cowichan Valley crowd but music lovers might not know his name right away.

He’s Zachary Stevenson and he’s been honing his ability to mimic well known performers for several years, often using Valley venues such as the Mercury Theatre and Ryder’s Roadhouse to polish his acts.

He appeared some years back in The Ballad of Phil Ochs and only a few years ago started to work on the astonishing tribute to Buddy Holly that has led to important gigs in Vancouver and a packed house at the Cowichan Theatre May 10 when he headlined in Duncan with the Legends of Rock & Roll showcase.

Stevenson is working hard at presenting the whole Buddy Holly, taking the famous performer far beyond the writer of iconic ’50s hits that were beloved by such later groups as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones but bringing out the part of his work that underpinned the rock music we know today.

Stevenson has actually visited Holly’s old studio and stood behind the microphone the pop idol used to record his hits and this extra work is paying off in additional reality.

The show in Duncan May 10 also featured Bill Culp as the Big Bopper and Ben Kunder as Ritchie Valens respectively, creating a concert line-up similar to the famous “Winter Dance Party” tour that ended in tragedy in 1959 when they were all killed in a plane crash.

And the music lived on…

It was a rep team of sorts.  Playing a 7 game series.  We brought Buddy in Concert to theatres in Ladner, Surrey, Maple Ridge, Sidney, Duncan, Terrace and Rupert.  If I could afford it, I’d award the team with gold medals.

Thank you to Johnny Ferrera (sax and keys), Jeff Gladstone (bass), Ben Kunder (Ritchie Valens), Todd Biffard (drums), Darren Savard (lead guitar), Marty Kramer (tour manager) and Bill Culp (Big Bopper) for a very fun and successful tour.   We played football in the parking lot, we jamed with the house band and partied at the Northern Motor Inn and, of course, kept the music of Buddy Holly alive by bringing crowds to their feet every night.
