A Little Bit Of Rock & Roll Heaven – July 29th At The Wichita Theatre [VIDEO]

On the heels of the well received musical, Hairspray, earlier this month, a taste of Rock & Roll Heaven comes to the Wichita Theatre Friday night, July 29th.

I wasn't even born in 1959 when Buddy Holly's plane crashed in a field in Northwest Iowa, but I was mildly familiar with his music from the "Golden Oldies" I'd hear on my transistor radio late at night. Then came the movie, The Buddy Holly Story, starring Gary Busey as Buddy, and I was hooked on his music.

Friday night, July 29th, finds not only Buddy's music rocking the Wichita Theatre, but Roy Orbison's and Elvis Presley's music as well.

Now that's what I call Rock & Roll Heaven!
