In Tribute to Buddy Holly

In Tribute to Buddy Holly

Zachary Stevenson… is the epitome of effortless cool with a gorgeous voice and a star-quality stage presence. ”

— Mark Robbins, Vancouver Presents

“Stevenson – a bravura performer who is the spittin’ image of the character he plays, and who possesses the voice, moves, guitar licks and irresistible energy of the “original” – is proof that Buddy Holly lives.” 

-Heidi Weiss, WTTW Chicago 

“Stevenson can sing… The guy is a knockout.” 

-Colin Thomas, Georgia Straight, Vancouver 

“Zachary Stevenson is one of the most charming talents to grace local stages in ages” 

-John Threfald, Monday Magazine, Victoria 

“Young Stevenson has his guy down and he comes with bucketloads of puppy dog enthusiasm; If you don’t like him, you don’t like much of anybody.” 

– Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune 

“…it’s frankly hard to imagine a better Buddy; Stevenson’s all-in performance will stick with you and not fade away.” 

-Kris Vire, Time Out Chicago 

“Buddy’s a blistering winner […] feel-great, leaving its audience roaring for more… Zachary Stevenson nails the rock ‘n’ roll legend in a full-throttle tribute that fires on all cylinders” 

—Peter Birnie, The Vancouver Sun 

“Buddy Holly was a skilled practitioner of his Stratocaster, and on that score Stevenson may be just as accomplished. He plays a wicked guitar, and his licks seem inextricably bound up in his on-stage cavorting. It’s all one, it all comes from the same core expressive place. This is the actor melding into the essence of the character. And it brings down the house, again and again.” 

– Lawrence B. Johnson, Chicago On the Aisle 

“Stevenson is just as engaging as ever […] from devilish swagger to drunken stagger, Stevenson is totally believable as Williams, and his smooth voice and heartfelt delivery are more than up to the tunes” 

–John Threfald, Monday Magazine, Victoria 

“Zachary Stevenson doesn’t portray Phil Ochs.  He is Phil Ochs.  The complex, mercurial personality; the songs […]  Stevenson nails it all“ 

-Patrick Langston, Ottawa Citizen
