McLean memorialized their deaths in the iconic pop song “American Pie” in 1972. The responsibility of getting the band in shape falls to John Bannister, who holds the title of music supervisor. He works for Buddy Worldwide LTD, the creators of the musical, and travels from site to site helping the actor-musicians with the music. He first joined the show in 1993 as a drummer. A classically trained Brit, Bannister auditioned for the London run of the show knowing nothing about Holly. He showed up for work after accepting the job, but couldn’t find the orchestra pit. “Where am I supposed to play?” he asked. “They said, ‘On stage,’ and from that moment on, I got the bug.”

He performed in various productions for several years, and in 2004 began his duties as musical director. Every cast is different, he said. “It’s all written down, but there’s a lot you can’t write down,” Bannister said. “With actor-musicians, you never know what standard they are at. They could be all right with the guitar, or they could be absolutely amazing. “What I have to do is find out what their strengths and weaknesses are and put it all together. I am basically the conductor, but I am not there for the actual show.” The band for the Ogunqit show, he said, “is quite incredible. These are great actors and great musicians. I am over the moon to be a part of this production.”
