Elvis Week Day 1 - Shake, Rattle and Roll


Elvis Week Day 1 - Shake, Rattle and Roll

August 12, 2017

The first day of Elvis Week 2017 was one big party, beginning with the Elvis Fan Reunion and ending with a huge dance party complete with conga lines.

Our Elvis Week hosts, DJ Argo, Dean Z, Joey Sulipeck, Tom Brown and Memphis Jones kicked off the festivities with a Facebook Live video - click here to watch.

Elvis fans from around the world played trivia games, heard from Elvis artist Betty Harper and Elvis' guitarist James Burton and shared Elvis stories at the Elvis Fan Reunion, the first event of Elvis Week.

That night, DJ Argo kept the dance floor packed at the sold-out Elvis Week Dance Party. Fans of all ages danced the night away to Elvis tunes, some dressed in Elvis T-shirts and dresses, and some in their own versions of jumpsuits. 

Elvis Week Blogger Jon Waterhouse found the best dancers of the night and shares their stories on today's Elvis Week Blog. His blog also features a review of Vernon's Smokehouse, photos from the Fan Reunion, and an interview with Elvis' close friend, Jerry Schilling. Read the blog now.
