***Miss Amber Fletschock will be showing her work TONIGHT at this SHOW!***

Hello from the Staples Motley Area Arts Council.

The Shadows, including original members bassist Dick Dunkirk and drummer Bob Korum, with Lewy Ronken will present a Buddy Holly tribute at Centennial Auditorium in Staples, on Saturday, October 17, at 7:30 PM.  The performance is underwritten by Unity Bank.

It’s been fifty years since Buddy Holly’s tragic death in a plane crash near Clear Lake , Iowa , but his name still stirs passion and musical memories.  He and his band, the Crickets, along with the Big Bopper (J.P. Richardson) and Ritchie Valens were on their way to play a concert at the Moorhead Armory in 1959.   Buddy Holly’s demise opened the door for Fargo native Bobby Vee and his band, The Shadows, when they were asked to take their place.

The musical time warp will include tunes like Peggy Sue, That‘l Be The Day, It Doesn’t Matter Any More, Rubber Ball, and many more.

The authentic sounds of those hits will also include the original string arrangements of the million seller hits of Buddy Holly and Bobby Vee with a lead violinist from the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony and members of the Staples Motley High School Orchestra.

For more information on this concert, and the rest of the season, check out the Arts Council’s website at www.staplesmotleyarts.org

Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for students in advance, $15 and $7 at the door, and are available from the Centennial Auditorium Box Office at 218.894.5416 or 800.213.6877.  In addition season tickets are still available to anyone purchasing six or more Advance sale tickets to any event, or series of events,  for only $10 per ticket.  Also any student with proper ID can purchase a Student Rush Ticket one hour before the show for only $1.

We hope to see you there.

(You have like 6 hours to get you shit together and be there!)
