Winter Dance Party

Tickets: $40-$30 (price does not include fees)

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. Each live concert performance includes over two hours of unbridled, high voltage entertainment featuring all the hit songs of the 50's era: That'll Be The Day, Peggy Sue, Oh, Boy, Rave on, La Bamba, Chantilly Lace, and many, many more.
John Mueller, 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 with Linwood Sasser as the Big Bopper and Ray Anthony as Ritchie Valens. The
very authentic and energetic four piece band (guitar, drums, stand up bass and sax)
includes Grammy award winning Mike Acosta on saxophone.
The Winter Dance Party show has performed in front of over 2 million people on national TV for the Jerry Lewis Telethon, has toured extensively throughout the United States and Canada at theatres, performing arts centers, ballrooms, corporate events, casinos and even for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with John Mellencamp, Marshall  Crenshaw and others.
It is the only show endorsed and honored by Buddy's widow Maria Elena Holly.
