Buddy Holly's Winter Dance Party


  • Date: Sunday 19th May 2013
  • Time: 7.30pm

In 1959 Buddy Holly began a string of dates in the American Mid-West . The tour was called THE WINTER DANCE PARTY TOUR, which included Ritchie Valens, Big Bopper Dion, and the Man himself Buddy Holly.

With four west end artists paying tribute to these four men, many classics from Buddy Holly's earlier songs 'Blue Days Black Nights' to Heartbeat and Raining in my Heart. La Bamba, Chantilly Lace, and Run-around Sue are to name but a few of all the classics that will be heard in the show.

With a live four piece band, Marc Robinson and the Counterfeit Crickets asks you ? Will Rock n Roll ever die?

That'll be the day!
