A high in demand act know both nationally and internationally, Blair plays with his own band the Belleview Boys the hits of Jerry Lee, Elvis, Hank Williams and all the greats.

 John Mueller as Carl Perkins 

John has had a successful professional acting and music career including guest roles on E! Entertainment, Ellen, Lois and Clark, Brisco County Jr. and the film Bloodline which also features two of John’s original songs but his real passion has remained with Buddy Holly, Carl Perkins and rock and roll from the 1950’s. Well known for his very successful show “Winter Dance Party,” the official and estate endorsed tribute to Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper, he created “One Night in Memphis,” also known as “A Night to Remember” back in 2012 and it is another smash hit. 

Fascinated by the night of December 4th, 1956 when Sun Records Studios had Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley all together for one magical night of rock and roll, John decided to create a tribute to that night and take on the challenge of learning all the classic guitar solos that accompanied the music from these artists. He finds it a great relief to sit back and let “Elvis,” “Jerry Lee,” and “Johnny Cash” do most of the entertaining and concentrate on backing them on guitar. 

John is proud to have performed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with John Mellencamp, Marshall Crenshaw, Nanci Griffith, and Joe Ely to name a few. Other highlights include a live TV appearance with over 2 million viewers nationwide on the Jerry Lewis Telethon and also performing a live sing-a-long version of "Peggy Sue" with over 48,000 fans at Texas Tech University's halftime show.
