The Ultimate Legends Band Presents a Buddy Holly Tribute

The Ultimate Legends Band is recognized as one of "the most talented tribute bands in the Midwest." Housed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the band is composed of elite artists and musicians who are passionate about reviving popular, old favorites. Their main focus is to successfully recreate the same sounds performed by many of beloved artists, including Elvis Presley, Tom Jones, Rod Stewart, the Blues Brothers, Roy Orbison, Marilyn Monroe and Johnny Cash. Each bandmate of the Ultimate Legends is a committed master of music with an impressive resume to support their love of rock and roll.

This July you will have the chance to hear the live sounds of the legendary Buddy Holly come back to life when the Ultimate Legends Band performs live, July 3rd at the Lady Luck Casino Marquette.

It's fairly well known that Buddy Holly didn't have the longest recording musical career when compared to similar artists during his time. However, the amount of talent he was able to contribute to the music industry throughout his life is difficult to match. Holly wrote and performed the hits "Peggy Sue” and “That’ll Be the Day." He had the opportunity to be the opening act for Elvis Presley at the Lubbock Youth Center. He also belonged to the band now known as "the Crickets." Not only did Holly write over 40 songs, but he established the classic rock and roll instrument lineup including two lead guitars, one bass, and a set of drums. Holly was both inspiring and influential to many bands during and after his time, including the Beatles and Hollies. Before he passed, Holly worked with orchestration and how those tones could relate to rock.

July 3rd is your chance to hear the sounds of an artist who charted seven top 40 singles in the span of one year. The show, performed by the Ultimate Legends Band, is one you don't want to miss. John Eske, with the help of his bandmates, is the featured artist who will help make the Buddy Holly sound come back to life.
