Saturday, Sept. 24, Clarkdale presents a crowd favorite, Come Back Buddy, returning for their fifth performance in the Concerts in the Park series. Join your friends and neighbors from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Clarkdale Town Park gazebo for an evening of fun, dancing and upbeat 50s and 60s rock and roll favorites.

Come Back Buddy is a four-piece rock and roll band inspired by Buddy Holly and the Crickets. The trio’s repertoire includes the music of many artists from the 1950s era including Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Ricky Nelson, and of course, Buddy Holly.

For some, Come Back Buddy is an education in nostalgia, while for others it’s a walk down memory lane. If you’re looking to turn back the clock, or simply want to hear some great music and hits from the 1950s, this is the show for you. Visit ComeBackBuddy.com to learn more.
