Rave On: Buddy Holly Story

Rock to the music of the Buddy Holly in this all-new tribute concert experience. Join the Arts Council for fantastic fun and great music on Tuesday, April 18 at 7:30 pm at the Ashe Civic Center for Rave On: The Buddy Holly Experience.

Rave On re-invents the ordinary tribute show with an electrifying, high energy, rock and roll extravaganza. This show will feature the premier Buddy Holly interpreter, Billy McGuigan. He captures the essence of Buddy Holly and his music. The audience will enjoy Buddy Holly hits such as Peggy Sue, That’ll Be the Day, True Love Ways and more. Backed by the rockin’ Rave On Band, their incredible musicianship helps ignite the stage and breather new life into the music of Buddy Holly!

Billy McGuigan and his brothers, Matthew and Ryan, are Air Force brats, the kind that moved around to various installations and lived in base housing. When their dad was home from duty, he entertained the boys with his guitar. What this upbringing did for the McGuigan brothers was to instill a love of music that take them back to those days of playing and singing with their dad.

The Rave On concert is part of the 2017 programming by the Ashe County Arts Council at the Ashe Civic Center. Before the concert there will be a reception for the Arts Council season pass holders in appreciation of their support of the community and school programing provided by the Ashe County Arts Council.
