A Tribute to Buddy Holly and the Crickets
Featuring the Rave-Ons
Made up of cast members from the national tour of the hit-musical, Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story, Todd Meredith & The Rave-Ons are a high energy rock and roll band originally formed to revitalize the music of Buddy Holly and the Crickets.
The Rave-Ons are led by our original Buddy Holly and Alhambra-favorite, Todd Meredith, who has performed in 20 separate productions of the musical as Buddy Holly and in tribute concerts for the past decade. The Rave-Ons have played together all over the country, delighting audiences in New York City, Reno, Memphis, Nashville, Jacksonville, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Colorado, Missouri, and even Buddy Holly’s hometown of Lubbock, Texas. The Rave-Ons exhibit a youthful quality reminiscent of the The Crickets and give their shows an energy and exuberance that cannot be matched.
