This January 8th would have been Elvis Presley’s 82nd Birthday.
Are you still lonesome for the energy, charisma and the incredible voice of the King of Rock-NRoll?
Then join us for Chris MacDonald’s Memories of Elvis Rockin Birthday Bash, a dynamic full production tribute that shares the incredible story of “the shy humble country boy who became the King of Rock–n-Roll” through highlights of several stages of his iconic career: the early years, the movies, the black leather ’68 comeback, the white fringe ’70 Vegas concerts.
As the only tribute artist hired by Elvis Presley Enterprises to perform at Graceland’s Heartbreak Hotel, Chris MacDonald brings back the memories of an All-American Legend in a truly dynamic multimedia performance complete with costumes, backup singers, dancers, a highenergy 8-piece concert band and special guest star, Rock-n-Roll Hall of Famer, D.J Fontana, Elvis’s original drummer. D.J. Fontana, “The Beat Behind the King,” played the drums for Elvis’s electrifying early television performances including the infamous waist-up only filming of the Ed Sullivan show – an attempt at censoring the raw energy and sexuality of this rising star of the new music genre called “Rock-N-Roll.” D.J. Fontana is the drummer on all of the King’s legendary hits of the 1950’s and 1960’s including “Hound Dog,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Heartbreak Hotel,” and many more. With his national touring production, Chris MacDonald draws his audience in with the look, sounds, and nuances that made Elvis the King. An accomplished and experienced entertainer, Chris has performed in Vegas, Branson and with the famous Legends in Concert stage productions. He has also headlined with Elvis’ own original back up group, the Jordanaires and D.J Fontana at the famous Hard Rock Live Concert Arena.
Join us for a fun filled night with great songs and memories as we celebrate the life and music of the King of Rock-n-Roll.
