~ "THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED - 57 WINTERS LATER" ~
On February 2, 1959, three of the biggest stars of the day — Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson "The Big Bopper" — played their last show. The next day the talented trio died in a small plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa.
Fifty-seven years to the day, three talented local men will take to the stage to honor them, playing some of the greatest songs of all time in “The Day the Music Died.” The show features Shea Birdwell as Buddy Holly, Rafael Espinoza as Ritchie Valens, and Ryley Tharp as The Big Bopper.
“The Day The Music Died” is an entertaining production honoring these rock & roll legends while educating the community on the history of this iconic American music and its influence on today’s culture. They will show the impact it has had on them personally.
