Having come through the auditions ahead of 4000 other artistes, Marc Robinson is the only Buddy Holly to have been chosen to appear on Stars In Their Eyes. Hes electrifying performance began a journey that has seen him firmly established as the Number 1 Buddy Holly look and sound a like in Europe.
His near obsessional attention to detail, from the wild knee dropping presentation, exact song arrangement, tailor made suits, horn rim glasses and fender stratocaster guitar, has been admired by the people who really knew Buddy, as well as those who saw him on stage.
Marc has toured extensively throughout the UK and abroad with his band The Counterfeit Crickets. A recent booking took him to Athens, Greece where his energetic show had the audience, including the British Ambassador, hopping around the dance floor.
One of the many highlights of Marc’s career to date was when he was asked to play at Sir Cliff Richard’s 50th birthday party at the N.E.C in Birmingham. Marc has performed with many of the top rock ‘n’ roll stars such as the Crickets, Bill Hayleys Comets, Marty Wilde, Joe Brown and many more. He has also made appearances at the Glastonbury festival and the Brit Awards.
Marc began his career as the founding member, catalyst and front man of an earlier Buddy Holly tribute band, thus making him, by far and away, the most experienced Buddy Holly tribute artiste available today.
“Standing Ovation – brilliant…guests loved them can’t wait to have them back. One guest had seen the real Buddy Holly months before he died (back in the 50s/60s)and said he’d never been to a tribute concert since but these guys were as close as what he remembers from the original concert!!”

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.
