An Evening with the King and His Friends is a foot-stompin’, feel good show that packs the energy of Elvis, blends the soulful sounds of Roy Orbison, and adds a touch of country class with Patsy.
Headliner Jim Smith, an award winning Tribute Artist, presents an exceptionally dynamic Elvis Presley tribute show that packs the energy and power of the King of Rock & Roll! Jim’s goal is to give people of all ages the opportunity to experience the music and the energy of Elvis. Jim got his chance to be on the "world stage" in 2007, after he won the title of 'Grand Champion Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist’ for The Viva Elvis and The Legends of Rock and Roll Festival in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This event played host to the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Competition, which offered Jim the opportunity to perform in Memphis, TN, the home of The King. He’s worked with the legendary Stamps Quartet, the backing male group that sang with Elvis from 1971 until his death in 1977. In addition to the exciting headliner, the first half of the show will keep you entertained with powerful performances by The Memories Band, including special guests paying tribute to music icons, Patsy Cline and Roy Orbison.
