February 3rd, 1959 marked the 60th anniversary of the plane crash that took the lives of some of America’s most iconic musicians: J.P. Richardson (The Big Bopper), Ritchie Valens and Buddy Holly.
Gary Rue is proud to present some of the original cast members from History Theatre’s IVEY-Award-winning production of “Buddy! The Buddy Holly Story” with Nicholas Freeman reprising his role as Buddy Holly.
Rue’s solo first set features memorable melodies from three artists who were among the chief beneficiaries of Buddy Holly’s genius: Gene Pitney (The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Only Love Can Break a Heart), Bobby Vee (More Than I Can Say, Take Good Care of My Baby) and Crickets’ guitarist Sonny Curtis (Walk Right Back, I Fought the Law, Love Is All Around from the Mary Tyler Moore show).
The second set features a Nicholas Freeman-led quartet serving up all the Holly hits: That’ll Be the Day, Peggy Sue, Rave On, Maybe Baby, Not Fade Away, Heartbeat, Everyday, Words of Love and Oh Boy.
Enthusiastically endorsed by The Crickets!
