No music industry icon has been imitated more than Elvis Aaron Presley. That is why Elvis Tribute Artist Art Kistler and the EP Boulevard Show Band present, "Forever Elvis... the Spirit Lives!" - a fun, classy, high-energy show featuring tasteful audience interaction and brings a modern style that catapults this classic entertainment genre to an entirely new level!
Feel the excitement as some of the Midwest's finest, seasoned professionals take the stage and build a fever pitch of anticipation just like the "King of Rock 'n' Roll" did in concert with the "2001: A Space Odyssey" theme. At the crescendo, "Elvis" enters the building in one of his many dazzling, authentic costumes and launches into a wide variety of timeless classic tunes, many of which have been modernized with a new, impressive edge while still preserving their original essence.
Each show is customized to the client's needs. The full production show even features multimedia projection turning the stage into a live music video!
Art may occasionally consider doing an accompaniment "track" show (using accompaniment tracks on a computer, without the band) or "Character Appearances."
