9 to 11 pm-Elvis Show (five man band)-“Adam T Elvis Show”
11 pm to midnight–Taped music on the deck
The King Is On His Way!
How many can say they opened a new facility with the King himself Elvis Presley! Well we can, sort of. We have the Adam T Elvis show arriving July 6 to open our newest Community Gem the Tim Hortons Outdoor Eventplex. Trust me this is an outstanding act who play three sets over two hours of different times in the life of Elvis. The Good Rockin’ Tonite Band is one of the best Elvis tribute bands in Canada. The band consists of four very seasoned musicians who have been playing music for over 40 years. On Lead guitar we have Jack Palace with over 30 years of playing experience. Jack masters the original guitar licks of Scotty Moore and James Burton (Elvis’ guitar players) with a hint of his own personal touches making it sound like your listening to the original records.
On bass, Rockn’ Rick Wojoik is the newest member of the Adam T. Elvis Show. Since Rick has started, he has given the band a new sound as he also masters the exact bass lines of all the original songs. “I’ve personally never heard any other bass player play all the Elvis Songs with such accuracy”- Adam T. Elvis. On keys and backup vocals, Brian Louko strives to play the songs the way they originally were, both with piano licks and filling in on all the other instrumentation on his keyboard that helped create the Elvis sound such as horns, strings, tympani, flute, accordion and any other instruments that were used in Elvis’ songs. On drums and backup vocals Craig “Stix” Fraser is the only original member of the Good Rockn’ tonite band. Craig Keeps the band together on and off the stage. With 40 years of drumming experience, Craig perfects all the various beats of Elvis’ music and keeps the band sounding tight and on beat.
This is a fantastic tribute band. You can check them out on Youtube. If you are an Elvis fan you will not want to miss this fantastic night out on the massive deck overlooking the centre stage. Show runs from 9 pm to 11 pm following our awards ceremonies. Tickets are available at the Recreation Office in Moosomin or you can call 435-3622 for will call.
