SCORPION ENTERTAINMENT AND MUSIC THEATRE OF IDAHO PRESENTS THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY
Friday, January 18, 2019 | Nampa Civic Center – Nampa, ID
Best known for his acclaimed tribute to Buddy Holly, Vancouver Island native, Zachary Stevenson, channels the spirit and sounds of the past in dynamic performance that is uniquely his own. Hear dyna-mite hits like “That’ll Be the Day”, “Peggy Sue”, “Oh Boy”, and “Rave On”. Stevenson presents Buddy Holly so perfectly that you’ll seem to be watching a genuine replica of the nerdy, and hip young Texan.
This is a two-part show, the first part showcases his masterful guitar licks and superb vocals including Holly’s trademark hiccup and energetic dance moves that often bring the audience to their feet. Beyond the music Stevenson weaves in engaging stories about Buddy and his personal experience in under-standing the man and his music. The second part of the show highlights the Rocking Horse Medicine Show Band and songs from the following artists: The Big Bopper, Dion, Ritchie Valens, Little Richard, Bo Diddley and more.
As an original artist, Stevenson has been featured at the Ottawa Folk Fest, Blue Skies Festival, Sum-merfolk, Winterfolk (Toronto), Folk Alliance (Memphis), North East Regional Folk Alliance (New York) and the Ottawa Blues Festival sharing stages with the likes of Ron Sexsmith, Sarah Harmer, Danny Michel, the Good Lovelies and KISS. He shares a Toronto Virgin Radio songwriting award with songwriting partner, Jeff Bryant, for their song “The Man on Radio”. Stevenson has proudly raised over $10,000 for MSF (Doctors Without Borders) through CD sales.
