Buddy Holly's Winter Dance Party

       Buddy Holly's 'WINTER DANCE PARTY'

 

            In January 1959 Buddy Holly began a string of dates across the American mid-west. 'The Winter Dance Party Tour' included Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper, Dion and the Belmonts and of course Buddy himself.      54 years on from what was to prove to Buddys, Ritchies and the Boppers final concerts we present a celebration of their music, together with that of Dion and the Belmonts. From the early songs such as Buddy's 'Blue Days Black Nights' and 'Rock Around with Ollie Vee'  to 'True Love Ways' and 'It Doesn't Matter Anymore'. The Big Boppers 'Chantilly Lace', 'Running Bear' and 'White Lightning'. Ritchie's 'La Bamba', 'Come On Lets Go'' Donna' and Dions  'The Wanderer', 'Runaround Sue', 'I Wonder Why' and 'Teenager In Love.

All the music is performed by real musicians in authentic 50's attire on real instruments. No backing tracks here!
