“Elvis is not dead,” says Tommy Lee Jones in “Men in Black” from 1997, “he just went home.”
What could be more like home, then, than fellow Elvis lovers singing to you through your computer screen, as if from another room?
Launched by James Intveld in 1986 and later hosted by Ronnie Mack and Art Fein, L.A.’s annual birthday party for Elvis Presley has featured rockabilly royalty, country crooners, Vegas showfolk, and the cream of the California Americana scene for more than three decades. It is the longest-running Elvis’s Birthday show in America.
Marty Barrett took over hosting duties in 2020, just before the lockdown, and returns for an online celebration of the King’s 87th birthday on January 8 at 7 p.m. Pacific, as COVID again spikes in LA and we want to keep our precious fans and performers safe.
Join us right here on January 8 for great interviews and performances with rockabilly legend Ronnie Mack, gentleman crooner Alias Means, lonely cowboy Justin Curtis, soulful darling Carol McArthur, whiskey-sippin’ axe-slinger John McDuffie, soothing presence Lisa Finnie, biker-with-a-heart-of-gold Dylan Thomas, starry-eyed dreamers The Prickly Pair, and more!
