Elvis-on-stageIf Elvis Presley gets you all shook up, then this is a must-see show for his fans

It has been almost 40 years since the untimely death of Elvis Presley, but the King’s music and popularity live on. And Evans will be rocking when Travis Powell – one of the top 5 Elvis tribute artists in the world – takes the stage on July 15. Presenting a recreation of Elvis on Tour at the height of his career, Powell will take the audience back in time to the early 1970s when the singer was in his prime.

The concert will open with a special performance from Carolina Quartet. Powell also will be joined by the TCB Experience Band featuring an original drum kit actually used by Elvis’ drummer, Ronnie Tutt, on tour; Alissa Davis and Diane Bailey. 

The North Carolina native was raised in a musical family with roots in Southern gospel music, and his admiration for Presley began at a young age. His grandmother made him his own Elvis jumpsuit when he was 4 years old, and his grandfather would shine a flashlight on him as a spotlight as he performed. Powell has won a number of Elvis tribute artist contests, including the Elvis Presley Enterprises-sanctioned 2014 Ultimate Elvis contest in Memphis where he placed in the top 5.
