A young Johnny Vallis imitated his teacher one day and was sent to the principal’s office. “Why are you here”, asked the principal? Johnny showed him. The principal said, “That’s really good”. Johnny Vallis, the man of many voices, has been imitating people ever since. Johnny made a name for himself with a particular voice.

Buddy Holly was “the single most influential creative force in early Rock n’ Roll”. Tragically, on February 3, 1959 he left us, but his music and will never fade away. In his tribute to the Rock icon, Johnny Vallis perfectly portrays both the look and the sound as he rolls out Buddy’s greatest hits; “That’ll Be The Day”, “Words of Love”, “Not Fade Away”, Oh Boy”, “Peggy Sue”, “Maybe Baby”, “Rave On!”, “Heartbeat” and more! With the addition of an upright bass, drums and a second guitar Vallis creates the authentic experience, just like Holly and the boys, playing the vintage instruments with all the spirit of Rock and Roll.

Vicki Pettigrew, Executive Assistant- The Commissionaires says, “Johnny has displayed over and over again a high level of entertainment value . . . proven, capable entertainer and a true gentleman. I highly recommend Johnny Vallis to any group. He is everything you would imagine, you will not be disappointed.” Anne Van Kirk, Executive Assistant to President – Butler Brothers Supplies Ltd adds, “Some of our guests had seen Johnny perform before and were looking forward to the show. Those who hadn’t were surprised by his versatility and professionalism. Many guests came to us afterwards to say how much they had enjoyed the performance. I will invite Johnny Vallis to entertain at other functions given by our Company.
