On Saturday, January 11th 2014, this beloved Seattle institution returns to Seattle and will once again beckon impersonators from near and far to represent just what “The King” really means to them! There is only one place in Seattle each year where you can see thirty different impersonators in full hip-gyrating, fried Chicken-eating and swooning action… You’ll probably even see his wife Priscilla, manager Colonel Tom Parker, best friend Red West in the crowd or on stage…
It’s all at the 17th annual
2014 Seattle Invitationals!
We are still seeking would-be amateur Elvi to perform and compete in the contest! Details & song choices at the “Seattle Invitationals“! Email your name, contact info, song choices, a photo and where you live to SeattleInvitationals@gmail.com AND Marlow@SeattleTwist.com
El Vez, the Mexican Elvis, will be Master of Ceremonies
Lucky Attendee´s will see each performer tackle one of “The Kings” many personas: the innocent and magnetic country boy, the hip-swinging rockabilly superstar, The G.I. Guy, Hollywood playboy, the devout gospel singer, or the diamond-studded, gold-sun glassed Vegas crooner. Each amateur impersonator will get one chance to show what he (or she) is made of – a single shot to perform a song, in costume, backed by the fabulous Kentucky Rain band!
To start the evening off with a bang we invited back the Graceland Five band- playing supercharged punk rock versions of the Kings music. Following this 35 minute “super set” we´ll bring on several surprise guests and professional singers to warm the crowd up for the main event.
