Million Dollar Quartet and Buddy Holly Story headliners provide rock’n’roll excellence…

Lance Lipinsky from the world-famous “Million Dollar Quartet” and Zachary Stevenson from the internationally acclaimed “Buddy Holly Story”, have joined forces to present a not to be missed Yuletide concert experience… A Rock’n’Roll Christmas.

Being the very best tribute artists in the world, they have to accept being able to swallow large doses of their egos. When they take on the persona of well-known celebrities, they must fade into the background in order to make their character believable on both a visual and vocal level.

But every now and then there’s a tribute act that’s so good people can’t help but notice the person behind the persona – lurking somewhere beyond the make-up, costumes and over-the-top hair styles.

Twenty four-year old Lance Lipinsky is one of those lurkers… and for him to come out from behind his character is really saying something because Lipinsky takes on one of the wilder entertainers out there – as the piano Rock’n’Roll pioneer and wild man Jerry Lee Lewis.

With so many tribute artists, audience members leave either saying things like “he really sounded like so and so” or “he was off on his take of so and so.” With Lipinsky, everyone in the audience is wondering and wanting to know “Jerry Lee Lewis or not… who is that guy?”

And Stevenson is no slouch either, he has performed the starring role as Buddy in no less than 10 different productions of “The Buddy Holly Story” and has recently been applauded for his leading role in the sold-out hit musical “Red Rock Diner” at Vancouver Arts Club Theatre. (Michael Buble played the lead role in the original production)

As Holly, Stevenson will be performing all of Buddy’s huge hits such as… “Maybe Baby”, “That’ll Be The Day”, “Peggy Sue”, “Everyday”, “Oh Boy” and some seasonal favorites as well..

Buddy Holly and The Killer… plus special added attraction – Molly Dee paying tribute to the Divas of Rock’n’Roll with an all-star Legends Band including “Mr Sax” Johnny Ferreira. Don’t miss A Rock’n’Roll Christmas – a fabulous rock’n’roll show on tour in western Canada in during December.

Tickets: $42
Box Office Tuesday – Saturday 12 – 5
604-981-6335
