All Shook Up. Despite claims to the contrary, Elvis is probably not still walking the earth, shaking his hips and strumming his guitar.

Well, a young entertainer that happens to look, sound, act and dress just like the famous jailhouse rocker is moving and jamming through the night. Come see a tribute to Elvis that could fool even the faithful followers of the King in Travis LeDoyt's Elvis. This Elvis inspiration takes form at 7pm.
