50s Dance Party Background

It's often known as the Day the Music Died. February 3, 1959, marks the date of rock and rolls first great tragedy. Rockers Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson lost their lives when their chartered plane crashed in a cornfield in Iowa during a huge snowstorm.

To keep the memory of these iconic musicians alive, John Mueller started the '50s Dance Party back in 1999 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the famous trio's original tour.

Once the shining star of Buddy... The Buddy Holly Story,John Mueller revives this iconic musician, who changed the face of rock and roll forever. Then there's Ray Anthony, who assumed his role as Ritchie Valens in the Legends of Rock and Roll Show, an award-winning tribute production. Anthony has additionally garnered personal recognition from Bob Keane, Valens' original producer from Del-Fi Records. Rounding out the trio is Linwood Sasser. Sasser plays J.P. Richardson, famously known as the Big Bopper. Sasser replaces the Big Bopper's son, also J.P. Richardson, who died recently.

More than 2 million people have seen performances of John Mueller's '50s Dance Party. Not only has the show been nationally televised on the Jerry Lewis Telethon, but the tour has also criss-crossed the nation, including performances at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Join these millions of people, and you'll understand why people like Buddy Holly's brother, Travis, said, "Really does Buddy proud... has his mannerisms and sound down pat. The best I've ever seen." And why Maria Elena Holly said, "I've never endorsed anyone doing Buddy, but I was really impressed with John... John is the only one who does it exactly like Buddy did. He's a great musician in his own right."


50s Dance Party Tour

Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper and Buddy Holly are still highly regarded as some of the most influential stars of the '50s era, and their music has withstood the test of time and is still being played all over the planet to this day. Their ill-fated final tour together still stands in the spotlight and is earmarked as one of the best collection of rock and roll talent ever assembled.


50s Dance Party Trivia

Although there have been numerous tribute shows, re-creations and impersonators dedicated to the memory of Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper and Buddy Holly, none are more regarded than John Mueller's 50s Dance Party. Coined as "the only show endorsed by the Holly, Valens and Richardson estates," the Richardson estate is especially involved. Jay P. Richardson Jr. played The Big Bopper in many of the show's performances before he passed away. He was born just two months after a plane crash claimed his father's life.
