Get ready to jump to your feet and sing along! The Buddy Holly Concert is a dynamic two-act show featuring Zachary Stevenson in a dead-ringer performance of the famed rock-and-roller with such hits as “That’ll Be the Day,” “Peggy Sue,” and “True Love Ways.” Stevenson presents Buddy Holly so perfectly we seem to be watching a genuine replica of the nerdy, hip young Texan right down to the guitar licks, trademark hiccup, and energetic dance moves. Above and beyond the music, Stevenson weaves in engaging stories about Buddy, giving context to the songs, and pays tribute to Buddy’s friends --The Big Bopper, Ritchie Valens, Dion, and Eddie Cochrane - to recreate this nostalgic era and connect it to today.
Raised on Vancouver Island, Stevenson is an internationally recognized award-winning actor, musician and writer with well over a thousand performances under his belt.
