Between 1957 and 1959, one man changed popular music forever. This is his story. Join us for a rock and roll musical review with over 25 songs recreating the magic of Buddy Holly. The incredible legacy of the young man with glasses, whose musical career spanned an all-to-brief period during the golden days of rock’ n’ roll. Holly is described as "The single most influential creative force in early rock and roll."
Years later in 1971 Don McLean released his single, "American Pie", to commemorate Buddy Holly's death and further accentuate the loss of the United States' innocence.
Don McLean's song began with the reference to the tragedy as "The Day the Music Died".
If you have not yet made reservations, call Patti (994-7355) to get your seat. Tables have been reserved and seating will be together.
