Two rock n’ roll legends will face off in a musical showdown. It is Liverpool versus Memphis. It is the rock band standard versus the first wave of rock music. The iconic music catalogs of The Beatles and Elvis will go head-to-head in hopes of determining once and for all who claims the title of “greatest of all time.” The songs from The Beatles and Elvis speak for themselves, and they are forever embedded in our psyche. During the two-hour show, the bands perform three sets each, trading places in quick set changes and ending the night with an all-out encore involving both bands.
There is no denying that the King and the Fab Four helped shape the early years of rock n’ roll. Beatles vs. Elvis – A Musical Showdown gives fans a chance to have their voices heard for this rock ‘n’ roll battle.
About The Musicians
Formed a decade ago, Abbey Road has quickly established themselves as a premier Beatles tribute band. The quartet consists of Nate Bott (John), Chris Paul Overall (Paul), Doug Couture (George), and Axel Clarke as Ringo. Complete with vintage instruments, tailored costumes, and tight harmonies, Abbey Road totally embody the Fab Four, making certain to use British accents and humorous quotes Lennon was known to interject between numbers, and “McCartney” (Overall) playing guitar left-handed.
Los Angeles native Scot Bruce has an uncanny resemblance to a young Elvis Presley, and is ideal to represent The King during his 1950’s and 60’s heyday. Bruce brings three of the most important elements to an Elvis tribute show: a dynamic voice, the ability to rock the guitar, and most importantly, the “Elvis Pelvis,” aka Elvis’ signature hip-shaking action. With Travis Daggert on electric guitar, Russell Scott on upright bass, and Shawn Nourse on drums, the showdown recalls Elvis’ early days recording at Sun Records.
