“Elvis Birday Bash 01/05/14. With Lynne Sheridan, went to Art Fein's 27th (!) annual ELVIS PRESLEY birthday bash yesterday afternoon at The Echo, with all admissions ($20 apiece) donated to the L.A. Rescue Mission. The lengthy artist roster meant that nearly all were limited to one or two numbers -- not a bad thing, as it turned out, given the 2-to-1 ratio of forgettable-to-memorable performances (all of Elvis songs). Best in show: THE RAYFORD BROS. ("A Little Less Conversation," a surprising choice and very funky), LAURA SMITH ("One Broken Heart For Sale," with Bob Ricketts on guitar), STEVE STANLEY (a terrific "Kentucky Rain," with superb support by the house band incl. guitarist Harry Orlove), BRIAN WHELAN (fine singing and tuff lead guitar on "Burning Love" and "The Promised Land"), and DARRIN STOUT (whose garbled lyrics and plentiful guitar "clams" somehow created a sense of freedom and improvisation that made "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" and "Mystery Train" his own).”
