Elvis Week Recap Day 6 - Celebrations

Wednesday was full of celebrations at Elvis Week!

The day kicked off with the hilarious and fun Fan Celebration Event at The Guest House at Graceland. Hundreds of fans from around the world shared stories about seeing Elvis in concert, played Elvis trivia games, saw some special artifacts from the Graceland Archives and more. Musician Terry Mike Jeffrey also shared his fun story of going backstage at one of Elvis' Vegas shows to meet the king - watch a clip of his story here.

The celebrations continued as Memphis Jones and his band, plus 2014 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Jay Dupuis, honored Memphis music with a concert at The Guest House. Jay didn't dress up in a jumpsuit - he was just himself, an Elvis fan. The two shared stories, Memphis history and, above all else, celebrated Bluff City's sound.

The American Sound Studio Concert was a star-studded event, with BJ Thomas, The Memphis Boys Bobby Wood and Gene Chrisman, Terry Mike Jeffrey, Andy Childs, the Holladay Sisters, Donna Rhodes Morris and Mark James sharing the stage. The concert paid tribute to the incredible tunes that were recorded at the studio, including many Elvis hits like "Suspicious Minds," "Kentucky Rain" and "In the Ghetto." Mark James joined everyone on stage for "Suspicious Minds" and Andy and Terry Mike got the audience involved in a massive sing-off.

The fun didn't stop there! The Elvis Week Bash took over Elvis Presley's Memphis, with fans touring the exhibits and museums, playing Elvis trivia games, dancing to Elvis music and enjoying delicious food. DJ Argo kept the dance floor full all night!

Speaking of food - if you've ever wondered who creates the yummy foods here at Graceland, you're in luck. Jon Waterhouse's Elvis Week Blog features Graceland Chef Mollee Malone and her talented crew, who make sure everyone is fed during Elvis Week. Read the blog now.
