A Rock‘n’Roll Christmas: Buddy Holly and The Beatles is Thursday

The Legends of Rock ‘n’ Roll presents two great attractions in one spectacular show on Dec. 15.

Zachary Stevenson returns to the stage as Buddy Holly, joined by knockout Beatles tribute band, The Fab Fourever in A Rock‘n’Roll Christmas: Buddy and The Beatles at the Cultural Centre.

It’s a well-known secret that without the influence of Buddy Holly, The Beatles may not have existed. As Paul McCartney stated: “John and I started to write songs because of Buddy Holly.” The Beatles name also comes from John wanting a bug-themed name similar to Buddy Holly’s ‘Crickets.’

Now, some 50 years later, Buddy Holly, the man who left such a huge impression on what is arguably the biggest pop phenomenon of all time, is being celebrated together with The Beatles through this super yuletide special by two world-class tribute attractions.

Stevenson has performed as Buddy in no less than 10 different productions of ‘The Buddy Holly Story’, and is currently being applauded for his leading role of the hit musical Red Rock Diner at Vancouver’s Arts Club Theatre.

The Fab Fourever has been wowing audiences throughout Western Canada with their live renditions of all The Beatles hits. This show will pay homage to the music of the ‘50s and early ‘60s with the Fab Fourever performing songs from the Cavern Club in Liverpool, The Ed Sullivan Show, and their ‘64/’65 World Tours.

“We’ve been out to see Zachary play as Buddy and every time we do we are asked ‘why don’t we team up?’” says Jody Tennant who plays the role of Paul McCartney in the group.

Kevin Davey as John Lennon adds “Zachary came out to one of our shows and the audience were asking the same thing.”

Stevenson will be performing all of Buddy’s huge hits such as Maybe Baby, That’ll Be The Day, Peggy Sue, Everyday and  Oh Boy, as well as some seasonal favourites.

The Fab Fourever will counter with memorable tunes such as She Loves You, I Want to Hold Your Hand, I Saw Her Standing There, Please Please Me, Twist and Shout, A Hard Day’s Night, plus some of their favourite Christmas tunes.

A Rock‘n’Roll Christmas: Buddy Holly and The Beatles is Thursday, Dec. 15 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre at 7:30 p.m. Tickets $49 and available at the Centre Box Office, chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, or by calling 604-391-SHOW(7469).
