Set in the late months of 1958.
The audience is present during Buddy’s band rehearsal as he prepares for the infamous mid-western tour known as “The Winter Dance Party tour” of 1959.
Although he has had eighteen months of nation-wide recording exposure and fame, Buddy wants to expand his inspirational efforts to include big band arrangements and movie sound tracks… Buddy’s musical combo, The Crickets, opted to stay in Texas; therefore Buddy needs to rehearse his touring band.
That is the show’s premise which provides context for an evening of Holly favorites and those of the Everly Brothers and Little Richard… these contemporary artists were friends of Buddy and he pays tribute to these influences in the show.
This unique format for a stage play is certain to give an inside look at a life which has been described as “eighteen months of fame and generations of influence.”
