Rave On! The Buddy Holly Experience

Created, Produced and Directed by

Billy McGuigan

Rave On! re-invents the ordinary tribute show with an electrifying, high-energy, rock n’ roll extravaganza. Directed by Billy McGuigan, the new Rave On Cast helps ignite the stage and breathe new life into the music of Buddy Holly.

In this rock and roll tour-de-force, audiences will experience all the thrills of a Buddy Holly concert re-imagined which includes such hits as “Peggy Sue,” “Raining in My Heart,” “It’s So Easy,” “That’ll Be the Day,” “True Love Ways,” “Oh Boy” and of course, “Rave On.” But, that’s only part of it! In a unique twist, Rave On celebrates the birth of an era and pays homage to fellow rockers; Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper.

Billy McGuigan is the Creator, Director, and Producer of Rave On! The Buddy Holly Experience. He has received national attention and critical acclaim for his portrayals of the legendary Buddy Holly in Buddy! The Buddy Holly Story. These performances have broken box office and attendance records in six theatres across the country. Billy took that success and developed this unique and exciting new tribute. Billy masterfully directs a new cast in Rave On! which continues that record-breaking tradition with an innovative concert format.
