Butlins relaunched their rock ‘n’ roll weekends with a massive show at the holiday park, Phill was honoured to perform with the original Crickets, The Jordinaires, Bill Haleys’ Comets & a number of the contemporary rockin’ artists from around Britain.
The weekend was a dream come true for the opportunity of working with artists he’d idolized since childhood Especially Buddy’s original backing group. Phill recreates the look & sound of his favourite rock ‘n’ roll singer of the 50’s.
He’s taken his tribute show all around the U.K. performing to 1000’s of rockin’ fans & delighting them with an authentic tribute to one of the 50’s greatest & most influential artists. This show is a must for not just Holly fans but anyone who loves the music of the 50’s.
The costumes, the moves & the sound are an echo of the late great Buddy Holly.
