    Description

    Buddy Holly and the Crickets - Norman Petty Signed Contract for Brooklyn Paramount Theatre (December 25, 1957-January 6, 1958). For much of the second half of 1957, the Crickets toured with the traveling super shows staged by legendary DJ Alan Freed. Compared to gigs earlier in the year, the Freed-fests were much more lucrative for the group. For the 12-day engagement at the Paramount, the group earned $4,000. Included here is a copy of the signed contract for the engagement, signed on behalf of Buddy Holly by the band's manager, the famed Norman Petty. The Crickets were in fast company now -- joining Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Everly Brothers, the Rays, Paul Anka, and Danny and the Juniors for the engagement.
