‘Buddy, the Beatles and Beyond’ planned for Jan. 25

The Hill Country's favorite retro rockers, The New Buddy Holly Band, will bring their brand new show "Buddy, The Beatles and Beyond" to The Cailloux Theater at 7:30 Saturday, January 25.

Hill Country stars The New Buddy Holly Band will bring their special brand of entertainment to the stage of The Cailloux Theater once again on Saturday, Jan. 25.

The band, which has been together since forming for a production of "The Buddy Holly Story" at Ingram's Point Theatre, specializes in recreating the early days of "Rock-n-Roll" for audiences across the region.

This year's Cailloux show, the group's 11th appearance in the hall, is called "Buddy, The Beatles, and Beyond," and features a more wide-ranging playlist than ever before.

The group's leader, Greg Bitkower, reports that the band has spent many hours in the rehearsal studio adding literally dozens of new songs to their show for this year.

"We're really having fun with music from the early "Beatles" years, and that's just part of what's new," Greg says.  "We think our fans will really love hearing these added numbers alongside their other 50's favorites."

The band will once again feature six members with the addition of saxophonist David Isadore to the standard lineup of Michael Martin on Drums, Brad Shearhart on Bass, Karen Billingsley on Keyboard, and Chris Huber and Bitkower on guitars, with all members sharing vocal assignments during the evening.

"Buddy, The Beatles, and Beyond" will rock The Cailloux Theater on Saturday, Jan. 25, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are priced the same as last year, just $15 to $30, and good seats remain in most sections of the auditorium.

Tickets can be purchased at The Cailloux Theater Box Office, in person from 10am to 1pm Monday through Friday, or 10am to 3pm Saturdays, or by phone any time by leaving a detailed message at (830) 896-9393.

Tickets can also be purchased at the Kerrville Visitor's Center on Sidney Baker Road during their regular hours, and are available 24/7 online at www.CaillouxTheater.com.  Patrons should note that online orders will incur additional convenience charges.

The Kathleen C. Cailloux City Center for the Performing Arts is located at 910 Main Street in Downtown Kerrville, where parking is free and pre-show dinner and after-show drinks are both within walking distance.

The Cailloux City Center is managed, on behalf of the City of Kerrville, by Playhouse 2000, Inc..  For more information readers can visit www.playhouse2000.com.
