When Buddy Holly died in a plane crash in 1959 aged just 22 he was already a star. Today he is a legend.
His songs are all-time classics, and no one does them better than Spencer J, whose performance delivers in a big way!
Wearing stunning 1950’s jackets sourced directly from the USA and vintage horn-rimmed specs, Spencer J has perfected the Holly look as well as the sound. Playing the same sunburst Fender Stratocaster guitar that Buddy Holly used to make Rock ‘n’ Roll history; with Spencer J’s act, you really won’t get closer to the real thing.
This upbeat show features all the legendary hits – Peggy Sue, That’ll Be the Day, Oh Boy, Heartbeat, Maybe Baby, Rave On, Not Fade Away… the list goes on. As well as Buddy Holly, the show salutes the Kings of Rock ‘n’ Roll with golden greats such as Blue Suede Shoes, Bye Bye Love, Summertime Blues, Be Bop A Lula, Great Balls of Fire etc. A great time is guaranteed for all!
Spencer J looks and sounds like his hero Buddy Holly and his love of the music and style runs deep.
A guitar player from the age of 12, Spencer is a skilled musician who accompanies himself and plays all the lead guitar breaks and solos in his impressive repertoire. Listen out for the choice licks in ‘That’ll be the Day’, ‘It’s So Easy’, ‘Brown Eyed Handsome Man’ etc. It’s the classic Holly sound.
The one-man show uses professional backing tracks all of which are authentic recreations of the original recordings. These are played through Spencer’s own state of the art ‘P.A.T’ certified PA system, to stunning effect. Spencer calls this set up his ‘Invisible Crickets’.
The guitar Spencer uses is a beautiful 1950’s style Sunburst Fender Stratocaster – the exact model that Buddy Holly played and made an icon of the Rock ‘n’ Roll era.
Spencer has portrayed Buddy Holly and delighted audiences at theatres; birthday and anniversary parties; weddings; corporate functions; hotels and restaurants; festivals; Christmas & New Year parties; tribute shows; themed parties and gigs of all descriptions.
He will add that extra sparkle to your event and deliver the professional and memorable performance you desire. He will leave your guests or patrons smiling and shouting for more.

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!

I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.

We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
