SIDNEY — Next month Johnny Vallis is set to take the stage at the Mary Winspear Centre in his tribute to Buddy Holly.

On Thursday, Feb. 6 Rock.It Boy Entertainment presents the tribute by Vallis who is known as the Man of Many Voices.

Buddy Holly was arguably one of the most influential creative forces in early Rock and Roll.

In his tribute to him, Vallis perfectly portrays both the look and the sound of the rock legend as he rolls out hits like That’ll Be The Day, Peggy Sue and Maybe Baby.

With the addition of an upright bass, drums and a second guitar Vallis creates the authentic experience, just like Holly and the boys, playing the vintage instruments with all the spirit of Rock and Roll.

Tickets for the show are available through the Mary Winspear box office at 250-656-0275 or online at www.marywinspear.ca.

Doors are at 7 p.m. on Feb. 6 and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.
