Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly both grew up in the same part of Texas. They recorded their earlier work in the Norman Petty Studios in Clovis, New Mexico, even at one point recording the same songs ‘An empty cup’ (and a broken date) as well as ‘You’ve Got Love’ both written by Roy Orbison.
The two Artists brought a unique Texas influence into their music and through their creative writing for both an individual sound was born!
Performed by Darren Page and Marc Robinson the show includes all the great classics from these amazing artists.
Darren Page’s vocal abilities have brought a reputation that always delivers a quality to entertain but Darren’s secret love in music is Roy Orbison. Marc Robinson has played the part of Buddy Holly all over the world along with many tv appearances. Darren joined Marc and they have now both dedicated their careers to the fabulous show including fabulous hits such as I Drove All Night, Pretty Women, Peggy Sue, Raining in my Heart and many many more.
This two-hour uplifting rock n roll show is full of nostalgia and amazing music dedicated to the wonderful Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly.
