TRIBUTE SHOWS

That'll Be The Day: A Tribute To Buddy Holly

THAT'LL BE THE DAY gives a fresh take on the catalog of Buddy Holly & The Crickets, featuring all the band's hits as well as some lesser known gems.  Buddy is a true music pioneer and is considered by many to be the Father of Rock & Roll.  The Crickets were one of the first bands of their kind to begin writing their own hits.  Buddy’s music has gone on to inspire The Beatles, Elvis Costello, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, & countless others.

 

In THAT'LL BE THE DAY,  Todd Meredith and The Rave-Ons  will take you on a musical journey starting with Buddy's early recordings at Decca Records in Nashville, through his breakout hits with Norvajack Studios in Clovis, NM, and ending with the story of his ill fated final tour.  Audience members will be treated to humorous banter and music history trivia inspired by this influential group.
