A Holly Christmas at entertainment centre

Must read

DECK the Halls with Buddy Holly and celebrate all that is Christmas with an incredible collection of Christmas favourites performed by tribute artist Scott ‘Buddy’ Cameron and his band.

The Christmas Show is on at the Proserpine Entertainment Centre, on Thursday, December 8.

Indulge in all the favoured Christmas classics: ‘Santa Clause Is Coming to Town’, ‘Jingle Bell Rock’, ‘Blue Christmas’ and ‘Little Drummer Boy’, as well as some Buddy Holly rock ‘n’ roll classics such as ‘Peggy Sue’, ‘Rave On’, ‘Oh Boy’ and ‘It’s So Easy’. 

It’s a show that has had outstanding reviews everywhere it’s visited, full of energy and vitality, along with blindingly accurate and faithful recreations of the hits, as you remember hearing them.

Buddy Holly was one of the greatest pioneers of Rock and Roll in the 1950s.

His career spanning only two short years before the day the music died, he still managed to leave behind one of the biggest musical legacies with a wealth of material that had a lasting impact on popular music.

Donning Buddy Holly’s trademark horn-rimmed glasses, Scott Cameron returns to the role that made him famous.

Scott ‘Buddy’ Cameron – as he became known – was a childhood guitar sensation in Australia, having shared the stage alongside Keith Urban.

In 2004, he found his calling, answering an audition call for the Buddy Holly Story musical.

His uncanny look, eerily similar voice and guitar prowess transformed Scott to become the single most recognised Buddy Holly performer in the world.

Scott had a remarkable run of glowing reviews for his portrayal of Buddy Holly in the lead role of the International musical Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story, in productions staged from 2005 through to 2009.

The musical took Scott all over the world including London’s West End.

Australian audiences last had the musical in 2009, which played for over a year and toured to Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide, even receiving a civil reception from the City of Adelaide.

In 15 years, Scott has performed as Buddy Holly over 2,000 times, sold more than one million tickets, broken five pairs of glasses and knee-slid through countless pairs of pants.

Scott was also the international lead in ‘Memories of Buddy Holly’, The Class of 59, Elvis meets Buddy, Buddy and Roy, and several other touring productions, and has even appeared as Holly on film in America.

Scott is joined on stage by a three-piece band including some of the finest Australian and international players.
