Buddy Holly Concert @ Stafford

MANAHAWKIN – The Rave-On Band will sing Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison songs at the Stafford branch 2 p.m. Saturday, April 26th in a concert co-sponsored by the Friends of the Stafford Library.. 

Buddy Holly is credited with elevating rock music as an art form and has influenced and inspired many music greats such as the Beatles and the Beach Boys. Paul McCartney sponsos annual Buddy Holly week celebrations.

Some of Holly’s most popular hits include “Peggy Sue”, “Words of Love”, “That’ll Be the Day”, and “Rave-On.” He was one of the first to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986. It’s been 55 years since a plane crash took the life of 22-year-old Buddy Holly, along with Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper, and every February 3rd, fans still gather in Clear Lake, Iowa to pay their respects.

 The Stafford branch is located at 129 N. Main St. in Manahawkin. This program is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Register in person, by telephoning the branch at (609) 597-3381, or online at www.theoceancountylibrary.org.  If you have any questions, call the branch for specific information.
