A Night to Remember

Come join in on the fun, Saturday, February 18, for a fun filled Mardi Gras night of music, dancing, and laughter with “The Buddy Terzia Band” at the Ruston Civic Symphony’s Krewe of Allegro thirteenth annual ball. Buddy is bringing his entire show band to the party of the year at the Ruston Civic Center.  Says Terzia, We are really excited about being selected for the entertainment for the 2012 Mardi Gras Ball”.  It’s always fun to perform for the Ruston Community”.

Terzia has been performing for over forty years, and Saturday night will be very special.  The band will be performing Top 10 Rock & Roll hits from the 50’s, 60’s and & 70’s, plus classic pop, contemporary country, and soul.  The enthusiastic Terzia emphasizes, “This band is loaded with talent.  I have three of the most talented female vocalists in the area, Lisa Lee, Alice Prophet, and Elise Bostick.  As far as musicians go, We’re loaded”.

“We have Tony Cortellini on keyboards and flute, Roy Waters on bass guitar, Doug Crawford on drums, Craig Bostick on lead guitar and vocals, and myself on lead vocals, guitar, fiddle and mandolin.  This is definitely going to be a high energy show.  We’re pulling out all the stops!  Being a part of this band is such a pleasure.  I’m surrounded by credible talent”.

Terzia also has the distinct honor and pleasure of occasionally performing with his friend “Charlie Daniels and the Charlie Daniels Band”.  Note’s Terzia, “Charlie Daniels has been a big musical influence on me.  I just performed my ninth show with Charlie back in September.  Being asked to perform “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”, as a fiddle duet with Charlie Daniels, well what can I say, it just doesn’t get any better than that”.
