Finally, a show that shifts the focus away from the smoke and mirrors associated with Elvis tribute shows….back to what it is all about: The GREAT MUSIC!
The concept of the “Premier Elvis Bash” began two decades ago when audiences wanted something more than the typical Elvis tribute show. Two of the most highly respected Elvis performers in the world were asked to share the stage for an authentic Elvis rock n’ roll show. Audience feedback was immediate and overwhelming, with fans traveling for hours to catch the show. Twenty consecutive years later, the fans are still raving.
There is certainly no shortage of Elvis shows or Elvis impersonators. The Elvis that true fans remember could sing “It’s a Wonderful World” and make you cry. He was a man who took his love for gospel and shared it through his rock n’ roll music. He had the magnetism of a superstar, but the sensitivity of a true artist.
Scot Bruce performs as Elvis, the way we remember him during his early career, followed by Mike Albert, who is superb as Elvis in his Vegas years. Together, they transport audiences far, FAR beyond the usual, overly produced Elvis shows to recreate the electrifying musical excitement of the King, in these gripping yet authentically based concerts. These performers are the elite in the genre. It is rare that one gets to look deeper than the caricaturist-type portrayals that have become the vogue, but these two master performers deliver an Elvis experience with superb reverence and a purity that will give you chills.
