CELEBRATE THE KING'S 75th BIRTHDAY
AT THE MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE
WITH CHRIS MACDONALD
Jan. 7, 2010 (Jupiter, Fla.) Thirty-two years ago (Aug. 16, 1977) we lost one of the greatest entertainers and pop culture icons of our time. Are you still lonesome for the energy, charisma and incredible voice of one of the most enduring icons of our pop culture? Then come celebrate the life and music of Elvis Presley, when tribute artist Chris MacDonald presents his Memories of Elvis in concert on Sunday, Jan. 17.
Elvis Presley, recognized by Time magazine as the "Artist of the Century," has sold more records than any other artist or group in the history of modern music. Even after death, his image and music continue to be loved and celebrated throughout the world. July 5, 2004, was established as the official 50th birthday of rock and roll to commemorate Sun Records' release of Elvis Presley's song That's All Right Mama. With recent No. 1 hits on Billboard and Great Britain's charts, Elvis once again proves he is gone, but not forgotten. Keeping the memory alive at countless venues throughout the country, Chris MacDonald lovingly brings back the magic of the "King of Rock and Roll" with his tribute Memories of Elvis.
MacDonald's show is not an overdone impersonation .It is a natural heartfelt tribute to the King of Rock and Roll. Adding to the authenticity of his tribute, MacDonald has the honor of being the only tribute artist hired by Elvis Presley Enterprises to perform at Graceland's Heartbreak Hotel for seven consecutive years. An energetic and experienced entertainer, MacDonald also starred in the famous Legends In Concert stage productions in such cities as Branson, Mo., and Las Vegas. He also performed in concert with Elvis Presley's original back-up group The Jordanaires and his drummer, D.J. Fontana, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Not only is the charismatic MacDonald superb in performing as Elvis, he also has an extensive repertoire spanning from the '50s through today, including contemporary country music tunes as well as some of his own original music.
MacDonald's solid vocals also have earned him Broward County's Florida Country Music Association's (FCMA) Male Vocalist of the Year award and a feature track on The Deuces Wild compilation CD, which received the FCMA Best CD of the Year award. MacDonald has a new original country CD recorded in Nashville, No Misconception. All songs on the CD were recorded with harmony vocals provided by the legendary Jordanaires. The songs are available for digital downloads on itunes.com or his Web site www.chriselvis.com.
At the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, MacDonald will bring back an all-American legend in a truly dynamic multi-media performance complete with costumes, back-up singers, dancers and a high-energy concert band.
