buddy holly tribute acts

Don't just take my word for it -
read some of the reviews from people who have seen the show in action !

"Buddy Walker"

When I was young in times gone by ,
The Music made me want to cry
I reminisce with songs of old ,
That warm my heart when it's all cold

You'd think at being 55 , The youngsters think I am not alive
They take the mick at what I wear ,
They laugh at my slick and combed back hair

And yet I find that tastes don't change ,
When choice of music is in range
The old ones slip back in the charts ,
Gliding past the RAP like darts

BUDDY HOLLY was my one ,
I thought I'd die when he was gone
Oh the tunes, his way with words ,
It makes this young stuff seem so absurd

Then to my shock while dining out
So quietly I watched to see
This man I hear was just like he

BUDDY WALKER was his name
My God he sounded just the same
I sat amazed my interest grew
He looked the same from head to shoe

He moved across the stage like smoke
What a very special bloke
I want now to just shake his hand
'Cause I've just met the once dead guy

He is alive and billiant too! , BUDDY WALKER well done to you!

St George's Theatre, Great Yarmouth .
A skilled showman, Buddy Walker swiftly built up a rapport with the audience .
He is clearly a very talented man with a very strong , well tuned singing voice and
is a skilled guitarist .
He proved his encyclopedic knowledge of 50s and 60s music by launching into
songs the audience requested.
In the second half, Buddy came into his own taking the stage in his namesake's trademark glasses with the audience clapping and singing to all the great hits .
Buddy Holly was brought to life with biographical information about the star and
the tragic death in a Iowa cornfield .
The night proved how enduring the songs of the era actually are . Even two
commited Indie-kids like my companion and myself went home humming
"That'll Be The Day" with a warm glow inside !
Rave On Buddy Walker !

GT YARMOUTH MERCURY - Review by Emma Lee


The Fisher Theatre, Broad Street Bungay, Suffolk .
Far more than just a tribute act, Buddy Walker brings the songs of Buddy Holly to
life . He performs all the Buddy Holly songs as perfectly as you could ever want while also being a fine musician . Its just an uplifting "Rock 'n' Roll" show that we
have now booked twice and sold out on both dates .
Each time the audience were on their feet at the end. What else could we ask.

Holly International Issue 15 Worldwide.
"This guy was brilliant. I don't know how he did it.
He had all the backing tracks but played and sang live, changing costumes as he
told the Buddy Holly story . The finale was great.
After various encores he gave up, possibly due to exhaustion. An enthusiastic performance - very clever and polished.
He told me later it was very tiring but he loved every minute on stage."
Keith Vause, England
