Booked The Baldy Holly Band for a Private Party
5.0  

The Winter Dance Party of 2017 in Clear Lake Iowa was the most memorable for my husband and I . We had the pleasure of hosting the Baldy Holly Band for the week of festivities. This group of talented musicians was a pleasure to spend time with. Having the pleasure of listening to them in our home with friends and family was amazing. While here they preformed at Garner Iowa at the school and the Clear Lake Middle school auditorium bringing an amazing show bringing the children to their feet as well as the adults in attendance. The band did an on air performance and interviewed at a local radio station ( KRIB ). The Band also preformed at a local watering hole ( Rumorz ) and at the British Buddy Holly luncheon bringing rock and rollers to their feet and bringing down the house at both venues. It has been an amazing experience to meet this group and making lifelong friends. My husband and I had the pleasure of coming to New Castle UK in March of 2017 and was given a special experience and was treated to a private show for my birthday. This talent is so rare and we are sure they will do great things. Cannot wait to see them again in person, till then the CD’s and You Tube will keep us listening. Many thanks to the great memories Baldy Holly Band. Gary and Shelley Stephens Clear Lake Iowa.

A huge thank you to the Baldy Holly Band for coming all the way down to Guisborough last Thursday to perform at my Dad’s Surprise 70th Birthday Party. Dad has a brain tumour as well as cancer of the oesophagus and loud noise and flashing lights are a big problem for him and exacerbate his symptoms, but he’s a huge music fan and especially loves Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Chuck Berry etc; the Baldy Holly Band could not have been more accommodating, reducing the sound level and the lights so that dad could cope. Despite being very frail and to everyone’s surprise Dad even got up and danced to quite a few songs, something we never thought he’d be able to do in a million years. He looked younger than he has done for years and he couldn’t stop smiling as he sang along to all his favourite tunes. The Band were so lovely with him when dad went up to chat to them and was getting a bit confused. Literally everyone that came to the Party have been in touch with us since to say that they were the best band they’ve ever seen. Thank you to the Baldy Holly Band from the bottom of my heart for making Dad’s birthday one none of us will ever forget and for giving him a spring in his step and a smile on his face. I will be forever grateful for to you for the unforgettable memories you have given us as a family. Thank you Just doesn’t seem enough.
