2016 Parkes Elvis Festival Announces Feature Act

Elvis tribute artist Donny Edwards will be the 2016 Feature Artist for the 24th annual Parkes Elvis Festival set for January 6-10, 2016 in Parkes, New South Wales, Australia.


Donny is ready to put the fun in "Fun in Acapulco," the festival's 2016 theme movie. Donny will appear in four high-energy concerts celebrating all eras of Elvis Presley's music, to be held at the Parkes Leagues Club.


Donny, a native of Las Vegas, Nevada, is a multi-award winning Elvis tribute artist, offering an authentic heart and soul tribute to the king. He's previously performed in Australia, as well as Japan and Canada, to audiences as large as 25,000. He has worked with the Jordanaires, the Sweet Inspirations, DJ Fontana, Charlie Hodge and Bob Moore. He's been hired by Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc., for tribute shows, TV spots and corporate events.


Donny will perform at the Parkes Elvis Festival backed by the impressive eight-piece Elvis in Concert band. In the Feature Concert series, Donny will take you back to the 1950s and the early years of rock 'n' roll, then go on a ride through the 1960s, from Elvis' biggest hit movies to the famous black leather '68 Special. Finally you'll revisit the legendary Las Vegas years of the 1970s as Donny recreates the performances that made Elvis Presley the one and only King of Rock 'n' Roll.


In addition to the Feature Concert series, Donny Edwards will appear at the 2016 Parkes Elvis Festival Street Parade, Gospel Service and Renewal of Vows Ceremony.


Tickets to the 2016 Feature Concert Series will be available from the Parkes Leagues Club and will be on sale following the 2016 Program Launch on Monday, September 14, 2015.
