NEWS RELEASE
City Hall

For Immediate Release: January 12, 2012

TWO ELECTRIFYING ROCK & ROLL SHOWS
APPEAR AT THE VAN WEZEL

Sarasota, FL: On Wed. Jan.18 @ 8 PM it’s the Ultimate Elvis Birthday Bash with two of the most superb Elvis entertainers on the planet, and on Thurs. Jan 19 @ 8 PM rock out to some of your all-time favorite hits with the great voices of Richard Nader’s Doo Wop including Charlie Thomas and The Drifters, Barbara Harris of The Toys, and more!

Scot Bruce and Mike Albert team up to bring you the most riveting tribute to the 'King of Rock & Roll' that you won't soon forget in The Ultimate Elvis Birthday Bash. 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. Mike Albert's "Ultimate Tribute" show has become known worldwide for the respectful portrayal of the late Elvis Presley—Mike even appeared as Elvis on the Oprah Winfrey’s show. Scot Bruce’s uncanny resemblance to the young “King” (and his ability to sing, strum a guitar, and swivel his hips), has led to appearances as Elvis in music videos with Faith Hill and Sheryl Crow, the California Lottery “Elvis” ad campaign, and in several successful productions of Idols of the King, including the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Recently, he had the honor of performing with the legendary Jordanaires (Elvis’ original backup singers). If you saw the True Hollywood Story: Elvis in Hollywood on E! Entertainment Network, that was Scot playing Elvis in the recreation scenes. Together, they recreate the electrifying musical excitement of the King, in a live, biographical concert. This is one show guaranteed to have ALL SHOOK UP!

Richard Nader’s Doo Wop Rock and Roll Show features five unforgettable groups. Charlie Thomas and the Drifters sing hits like Under the Boardwalk and This Magic Moment; Barbara Harris of The Toys is known for Attack and A Lover’s Concerto; Tommy Mara, new leader of The Crests sings 16 Candles; George Galfo’s Mystics take on Hushabye and Don’t Take the Stars, and The Vogues belt out You’re the One, The Land of Milk and Honey; and so much more!

Ultimate Elvis Birthday Bash, Wed. Jan.18 @ 8 PM, ticket prices range from $10-$45.
Richard Nader’s Doo Wop, Thurs. Jan 19 @ 8 PM, ticket prices range from $10-$60. Sponsored by Wilde Lexus of Sarasota.
