It’s two dynamic tribute acts in one spectacular show.
The Legends of Rock ‘n Roll present Buddy Holly & The Beatles: A Special event on May 24 in HUB International Theatre at the Cultural Centre.
The Beatles have always been linked to Buddy Holly, since as the story goes, they wanted an insect-related name for the band, to echo Buddy Holly’s backing band, the Crickets.
Zachary Stevenson returns as Buddy Holly, joining the Beatles tribute band, The Fab Fourever, which features two knockout local musicians, Cody Tennant and Kevin Davey.
Stevenson has performed as Buddy Holly in several productions of ‘The Buddy Holly Story’, and is lauded for his hit musical “Red Rock Diner” at Vancouver’s Arts Club Theatre.
The Fab Fourever have been wowing audiences throughout Western Canada with their live renditions of all the classic Beatles hits.
This show will pay homage to the music of the 50’s and early 60s with the Fab Fourever performing songs from 1960 – 1965, 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 ads “and then Zachary came out to one of our shows and the audience were asking the same thing.”
As Holly, Stevenson will be performing all of Buddy’s huge hits such as… “Maybe Baby”, “That’ll Be The Day”, “Peggy Sue”, “Everyday”, “Oh Boy” and more.
