“A Rockin’ Elvis Christmas” coming to La Rita Theatre

THE DALHART TEXAN

Dalhart’s La Rita Performing Arts Theatre, along with Stardom Entertainment, will present “A Rockin’ Elvis Christmas” next month. The production features Vince King from Houston, Cliff Wright from Branson, Missouri, and Shake Rattle & Roll from East Texas backed by the Edge of Reality Band from the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Vince King is a multi-award-winning “Elvis Tribute Artist.” He’s won and placed in multiple Elvis tribute artist competitions and is recognized by Elvis Presley Enterprises as a preferred Elvis Tribute Artist. King, given his striking Elvis features, was destined to become an Elvis tribute artist. His Elvis-like voice, famous moves, mannerisms, and charisma create a magical connection with his fans. King’s recreation of Elvis’ Las Vegas years is some of the best in the world.

Cliff Wright is a self-taught musician who began his journey into music at eight-years-old, starting with the guitar. Heavily influenced by many artists from the 1950s-1970s, Wright has always gravitated toward Elvis’ music. He has had the honor of accompanying many musicians and back-up singers who worked with Elvis, and has won and placed in numerous Elvis competitions. If Wright could describe Elvis in one word, it would be “magical.” Magical can also describe Wright’s recreation of Elvis in the early years.

The Shake Rattle & Roll doo-wop group from East Texas sets the tone for the Christmas production. Tavie Spivey, Leann Bemis, Brenda Spencer, and Debi Comis, a nationally and internationally known ladies’ doo-wop group, rocks the audience with their rockin’ Christmas pre-show, setting the stage for Vince King and Cliff Wright. The ladies will also serve as the back-up singers throughout the production.

“A Rockin’ Elvis Christmas” is backed by one of the top tribute bands ever, Edge of Reality. Edge of Reality backs Elvis tribute artists and other celebrity tribute artists all around the United States. Edge of Reality is regarded as one of the best tribute bands around.

“A Rockin’ Elvis Christmas” is an excellent performance for all ages and is very entertaining. It will be at the La Rita Theatre on Saturday December 4. Tickets will be $25 each and will go on sale on Wednesday November 10. Tickets can be purchased at www. larita.org or at the Dalhart Area Chamber of Commerce office. The Chamber of Commerce’s phone number is (806) 244-5646.
