Rex Fowler presents: REX & THE ROCKABILLY KINGS performing early Elvis Presley classics
Elvis Presley’s musical contribution, cultural impact, and artistic achievement made him an unsurpassed 20th century icon. Drawing from his country and gospel roots, and the rhythm and blues of the fertile Mississippi Delta, Elvis intuitively created a revolutionary groundbreaking sound that previously had never even been imagined. This show is all about Elvis’s early years on Sun and RCA Records, mainly from 1954 to 1962. Come be reminded of how brilliant and innovated the young Elvis Presley really was when Rex & The Rockabilly Kings take the stage. The band features Rex Fowler of Aztec Two-Step fame on historically poignant song introductions, lead vocals and Elvis-style rhythm guitar, Billy Rouse on Scotty Moore-style electric guitar, brother Steven "Muddy" Roues on Bill Black-style double bass and blues harp, and Joe Geary on DJ Fontana-style drums. The Roues brothers also sing lead on several songs plus superb Jordanaires-style backing vocals. Bring your Bouffant do's and your 'Blue Suede Shoes' and dance to the amazing songs that inspired John Lennon and Keith Richards to start their own bands and that changed popular music forever.
