BLYN — Tickets are on sale to see Elvis, Buddy Holly, Janis Joplin and Stevie Ray Vaughn.
These musical legends and their soul-stirring songs will be recreated in two special fundraising shows for the Peninsula Daily News’ Peninsula Home Fund on Sunday.

Billed as a “Buddy Holly Birthday Party, it coincides with the Sept. 7, 1936, birthday of Holly (“That’ll Be The Day,” “Peggy Sue”).
Holly was killed in a plane crash on Feb. 3, 1959.
Performing will be The Reincarnations of Rock & Roll, a show and dance band with tributes to Elvis, Joplin and Vaughn.
