John Mueller’s "Winter Dance Party” ® is the official live tribute of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper's final tour and the only show endorsed by the Holly, Valens and Richardson estates. Each live concert performance includes over two hours of unbridled, high voltage entertainment featuring all the hit songs of the 50's era: That'll Be The Day, Peggy Sue, Oh, Boy, Rave on, La Bamba, Chantilly Lace, and many, many more.

John Mueller, the critically acclaimed former star of the U.S. touring version of the London/Broadway hit musical "Buddy..the Buddy Holly Story," performs as Buddy Holly and Linwood Sasser sings the songs of the Big Bopper. Ray Anthony performs as Ritchie Valens and is a renowned star of the "Legends of Rock and Roll" show at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas. The very authentic and energetic four piece band (guitar, drums, stand up bass and sax) includes Grammy award winning Mike Acosta on saxaphone.

The Winter Dance Party show has performed in front of over 2 million people on national TV for the Jerry Lewis Telethon, has toured extensively throughout the United States and Canada at theatres, performing arts centers, ballrooms, and casinos. Highlights over the years include a performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with John Mellencamp, Marshall Crenshaw, and a four show appearance with the Philly Pops conducted by Grammy winner and legend Peter Nero, and re-created the original 1959 tour on the same dates and exact order in the remaining original ballrooms. Additionally, the show has been given the keys to the city of Green Bay for honoring the original tour yearly in the original and historic Riverside Ballroom.
