C3 Entertainment, Inc. announced the addition of Winter Dance Party to its growing stable of classic brands for worldwide licensing and merchandise. Winter Dance Party was the final 1959 Rock-N-Roll tour for rock legends Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens as they met their untimely deaths during the Winter Dance Party tour in a tragic plane crash that has come to be known as “The Day The Music Died.” But their music and hit songs – like That’ll Be The Day, Peggy Sue, La Bamba, and Chantilly Lace – are Rock-N-Roll classics that live on forever.
Winter Dance Party continues to perform the classic 1950’s Rock-N-Roll with performances on national TV and to millions of fans in live shows throughout the United States and Canada at performing art centers, concert halls, theaters, ballrooms and at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Chicago Sun-Times categorized the show as a ’stunning portrayal’ and the Chicago Tribune said it was ‘Flawless’. Fans refer to the Winter Dance Party as “unforgettable,” “amazing” and “like being transported back in time”.
Ani Khachoian, C3’s EVP of Licensing, Merchandising and Distribution said: ‘We currently represent rock legend The Big Bopper, and we are thrilled to add the Winter Dance Party as another major and popular brand to our growing portfolio. The story of the Winter Dance Party and the tragic deaths of the 1950’s rock legends is so compelling that C3 is developing an all new motion picture about the Winter Dance Party that became the most infamous music tour in Rock-N-Roll history, and ended on a fateful day in Iowa when “The Music Died.”
