Big Bopper Jr

Legendary Songwriter / Singer J.P.Richardson “The Big Bopper” was lost in the fatal plane crash that took Buddy Holly and Richie Valens. His songs have lived on with hits like “Running Bear” recorded by Johnny Preston and ”White Lighting” by George Jones. However,The Bopper” is most remembered for his hits “Chantilly Lace” and “Big Bopper’s Wedding”. His son J.P.Richardson Junior, born three months after his death, is carrying on his father’s legacy. He is the spitting image of his dad in looks and voice. In preparation for an upcoming feature film and a broadway musical, about his father’s life and music, J.P.Junior, is going to be appearing on selected dates. He will be performing his Dad’s existing music and “The Lost Songs”, 23 songs in The Bopper’s own hand, found in the wreckage of the plane crash in 1959. Unlike “The Buddy Holly Story” and “Labamba”, “The Life and Times of The Big Bopper”, will have a living, breathing, bigger than life figure,that will bring new visibility to his father’s life and music.
