The Winter Dance Party: a tribute to Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper
presented by Poway OnStage
John Mueller’s Winter Dance Party® is the official live and authentic re-creation of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper’s final tour and the only show endorsed by the Holly, Valens and Richardson estates.
This high voltage performance includes over two hours of unbridled entertainment featuring the ‘50s hits “That’ll Be the Day,” “Peggy Sue,” “Oh, Boy,” “Rave On,” “La Bamba,” “Chantilly Lace” and many more. John Mueller (One Night in Memphis), the critically acclaimed former star of the U.S. touring version of the London/Broadway hit musical “Buddy: the Buddy Holly Story,” performs as Buddy Holly and Linwood Sasser fills the legendary footsteps of the Big Bopper. Ray Anthony performs as Ritchie Valens. The Chicago Tribune describes it as “Flawless….rings as clear and true as a chord from a Fender Stratocaster.”
