Viva Las Vegas-Elvis Lives
Saturday, March 19, 2011
A group called "Day Trippers", members of Parker County Women's and Newcomers' Club, attended the Donny Edwards "One Night With Elvis" show at Texas Opry Theater in Weatherford, Texas.
The show was Excellent with a capital "E" and everyone appeared to be thoroughly enjoying this very professional production. Donny truly channels Elvis and if you close your eyes, you'll think you are listening to the man himself.
Also on the program was David Allen who made his tribute to Elvis in a black leather costume. He sang lesser known songs by Elvis and was fantastic. His energy level was incredible and he kept the audience completely engaged the whole time he was on. I must mention that the back-up band "Fever" is one of the best I've ever heard. Just hearing them play is a treat in itself.
Looking around the audience, there were many in attendance whom probably danced to Elvis records and songs in their younger years. The younger girls in attendance were screaming and yelling just like we did in our heyday.
This show is coming back to Weatherford on May 21, 2011 so mark your calendars and make plans. When you see it you'll surely say, "For one night, Weatherford, Texas becomes Viva Las Vegas!"
This is all I have to say for now.
