It's a venue drummer Bobby Elliott has fond memories of. "We must have played the Town Hall about 20 times," he tells The Buzz.
As major players in the iconic 1960s Brit pop revolution the band enjoyed more hits than The Beatles from 1963 to the mid-1970s, clocking up 18 top 10 hits including The Air That I Breathe and He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother.
Named after pioneer of rock 'n' roll Buddy Holly, they recently released a double album of live hits.
And an unlikely source proved the inspiration for the album's tagline.
"Tony (Hicks) was in Henley shopping in the Waitrose and Liam Gallagher was there with his basket and he came over and said 'hey man, great band, you got the tunes.
"So on the back of that, the album has 'we got the tunes' written on it."
Catch The Hollies from 7.30pm next Thursday.
