As the only tribute artist hired by Elvis Presley Enterprises to perform at Graceland’s Heartbreak Hotel, Chris MacDonald returns this August in Chris MacDonald’s Memories of Elvis in Concert. Chris MacDonald brings back the memories of an All-American Legend in a truly dynamic multimedia performance complete with costumes, back up singers and dancers, high-energy 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.
This is MacDonald’s only South Florida appearance for his summer concert tour. Don’t miss this loving tribute to the story of the shy humble country boy who became the King of Rock-n-Roll!
