Elvis is in the Building

Next month, Elvis (aka THE KING) returns!

Colin Mockett and the band All Shook Up! will bring The King to life as part of the monthly Potato Shed Morning Show Time series in The Elvis Presley Story.

When Elvis Presley died August 16, 1977, his manager, Col Tom Parker, was asked how he would cope after Elvis’ death. Ever the entrepreneur, Parker replied ‘This is not the end. It’s the beginning.’

Parker was right. Elvis sold 260 million records during his lifetime. In death, the figure is around a billion (and counting). Elvis’ fans continue to buy his albums, 42 years after his death.

Join Geelong historian and entertainer, Colin Mockett as he utilises solid research and big screen imagery to tell The Elvis Presley Story, from the beginning at Sun Studios, via Hollywood movies and Las Vegas big shows.

All Shook Up! provide the all-important soundtrack, honouring the inimitable King of Rock n’ Roll.

Get All Shook Up at the Potato Shed, 10:30am Tuesday 3 September. Morning tea provided. All for $17.00!
