The spirit of Buddy Holly was in no danger of fading away on Saturday night as a full house attested to the enduring legend of this beloved pioneer of Rock & Roll. Despite the threat of a snow & inclement weather, it was a “Hollyday on Ice” as fabled music hall Blob’s Park in scenic Jessup, Maryland bounced and danced to the joyously infectious sounds of the Buddy Holly songbook, ably performed by some of the Baltimore/Washington area’s finest bands. Everyone from Ruthie & The Wranglers to Billy Coulter, Dede Wyland to The Fleabops, The Droptops to Dagmar Swenson was there, raving on like there was no tomorrow, or in this case, The Superbowl.
