Andrew Morley as his idol Buddy Holly

The 6ft 5ins gentle giant, in period attire, dark rimmed glasses and with a voice to pay worthy tribute to the Peggy Sue hit maker, is every inch his idol on stage.

Andrew, aged 36, from Brinsworth, a singer songwriter following his own musical aspirations, has taken over from his dad, Ian, who used to sell out shows with his own Buddy Holly tribute band, called Hollydayz.

Now it is Andrew's turn to wow the crowds.

The show features over 40 timeless classics from this golden era of popular music, including all the Holly hits and is guaranteed to have you dancing in the aisles.

Andrew , with an uncanny look of his musical hero, is no stranger to the role. He was the lead in a production of Buddy a few years ago at Sheffield's Lyceum.

Now he is songwriting and performing in his own style. He released a debut album, Tomorrow, featuring Sheffield singer songwriter Richard Hawley and his band. He was so impressed that he played on several tracks.

He said: "I enjoyed playing the part in the Buddy stage musical but this is different. It's more like a concert. We play all the hits and more.
