Buddy Holly at the Grand Theatre

“Stevenson is so comfortable, so focused and so believable as Holly, lovers of rock ’n roll, music history or Buddy Holly should run to buy tickets. He’s that good.” – Joe Belanger, London Free Press

Thank you, Joe.  Buddy “rave’s on” in London, On until May 7th.  The LFP also gave us a 4/4 star review calling it a “must-see show that will not disappoint”.  Get your tickets NOW!

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.

The Buddy Holly Concert!

Yes, Buddy Holly is back in my life yet again!  “Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story” was so popular last year at the Arts Club Theatre, the producers of Legends of Rock n’ Roll teamed up with me to produced a tribute concert for those who just couldn’t get enough Buddy Holly or for those who couldn’t make it to the theatrical production.

I’ve assembled two other fantastic performers- Bill Culp and Ben Kunder to feature as the Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens, respectively, creating a concert line-up similar to the infamous Winter Dance Party tour that ended in tragedy in 1959.

Join us, to prove Don McLean wrong that music never did die on that fateful day while we Rave On into the night with fantastic music performances of many of your favorites!
