Chase Away Winter Blues: Come and Party With Buddy Holly and the Cricketers

Buddy Holly and the Cricketers are coming to The Kenton on Saturday 10 February on their highly anticipated tour as the boys once again hit the stage to delight audiences with their dynamic show, featuring authentic arrangements, driving rhythms, energetic performances and skilled musicianship that always have audiences dancing in the aisles!

If you like Rock and Roll you’ll definitely love this. Songs include all Buddy’s big hits such as: That’ll Be The Day, Peggy Sue, Heartbeat, It Doesn’t Matter Anymore Raining In My Heart, Oh Boy! – plus some super stunners from other chart-topping artists.

Producer Simon Fielder of Simon Fielder Productions, a former actor in the original touring and West End show said: “As a young guitarist I listened to Buddy and he massively influenced my playing and writing.  My adult life has been spent performing his music and presenting other actor musicians on stages all over the world who have brought delight to thousands and thousands of people. The show has been on the road for over 30 years now. We are absolutely delighted to welcome our audiences back to full houses so they can enjoy a fabulous party with Buddy and the boys.”

Buddy Holly said: “Hello UK, It’s finally come time for me and the Cricketers to hit the stage again and we can’t wait to see you dancing in the theatre aisles, hoppin’ and boppin’, and having a party with us!  I’d personally like to invite each and every one of you to come see us – it’s time to dust off those dancing shoes. We can’t wait to see you there!”

Buddy’s music has touched the heart of millions around the world and influenced many famous artists such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Brian May and many others. It’s also incredible how many younger people are now into his music. His music transcends time and audiences are a great mix of ages.

This show has been delighting audiences for over three decades and has performed in many locations around the world including Europe and a tour of the US. It stars some of the finest actor-musicians in the UK including Jay Osborne as Buddy and was endorsed as Britain’s most popular Buddy Holly act when the show appeared on BBC One’s The One and Only, with Graham Norton notably commenting that they were “Buddy Brilliant”.

The show has always presented Buddy in the style of show they feel he would perform today. Authentic arrangements, driving rhythms, energetic performances and wonderful musicianship, all delivered with charm and humour.
