ROCK N ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES THE CRICKETS AT ARCADA OCT 6
BUDDY HOLLY'S ORIGINAL BAND PERFORMS LIVE IN ST. CHARLES
ST. CHARLES - Sept. 14, 2012- Rock N Roll Icon Buddy Holly formed his band the The Crickets in the heyday of 1950s, releasing hits like "That'll Be the Day," "Peggy Sue," "Maybe Baby," and "Oh Boy." The original band is set to perform live at the historic Arcada Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 6. Visit The Crickets' official website here.
"Buddy Holly's band definitely influenced some of the greatest rock bands - including the Beatles - with their one of a kind guitar, bass, and drum arrangements," said Ron Onesti, owner of the Arcada Theatre. "At the time, their ability to write their own songs made them stand out, and the hits continued to soar even after Holly's death in 1959."
The Crickets' vocalists will bring the actual hits they sang with Buddy Holly to St. Charles in the intimate setting of the Arcada Theatre. Tickets and more information are available online at the Onesti Entertainment website, www.oshows.com.
The Arcada Theatre, located at 105 E. Main Street, seats 900 and has recently hosted stars including Kevin Costner, Joan Rivers, Don Rickles, Andrew Dice Clay, Martin Short, Bret Michaels, Richard Marx, Hugh Jackman, and Weird Al Yankovic. Onesti Entertainment produces up to 200 live concerts, festivals, and events each year throughout the country.
