Other performances will include Scot Bruce and his band doing “A Rockin’ Tribute to the King” with songs from Sun Records to the ’68 Comeback Special and Martin Anthony in a special set of “Duets with Elvis” featuring legends impressionist Danny Jacobson as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ray Charles and several others and Kat Ferguson as Ann Margret.
Wall’s band Krazy Kirk and the Hillbillies, regulars at Knott’s Berry Farm, will have Elvis singing bluegrass, gospel, the Beatles hits and a variety of other styles.
Other activities include an Elvis themed art contest and show at Black Umbrella Tattoo and Art Gallery, stilt walking Elvis and Priscilla, Abbit the Average Elvis, Elvis Fan Clubs: The Jailhouse Rockers of California and Blue Suede Shoes of California, Elvis memorabilia and collectibles, special Elvis food items along with the variety of restaurants and shops on Main Street.
