Elvis and Friends comes to South Australian venues this winter for a strictly limited season!

This electrifying show stars internationally renowned tribute artists Dean Vegas (Elvis), Dennis Knight (JOK) and Kris Knight (Buddy) and features all the classic rock and roll hits from the 50′s, 60′s and beyond!

This is a show not to be missed, full of great music, laughter and entertainment at its best!

Dean Vegas is regarded as one of Australia's greatest Elvis Tribute Artist, having performed across the world in Memphis, Las Vegas, Dubai, Sweden, Lebanon, Canada, London, New Zealand, Norfolk Island and China!

After wining the worlds largest Elvis Festival in Collingwood Canada in 2000 and becoming Australia's first ETA to do so, he was invited to perform at the Mayors Gala Dinner in Tupelo, the birthplace of Elvis Presley, where he was awarded the Key to the City by the Lord Mayor himself and, to this date is the only ETA to have received this honour!

Dennis Knight is a true legend of Australian Rock n Roll. His manager, Johnny O'Keefe nurtured him to perform with the charisma he himself had on stage!

At Expo '88 in Brisbane, Dennis performed to 12,000 people at the river stage and his concert could not be followed by any other artists, local, interstate or international. Dennis is a great versatile entertainer and in 1993 was voted "Variety Performer Of The Year", for the Variety Club of Australia, and also has won the "Queensland Entertainer of the Year" Award 5 times in succession.

Kris Knight is a renowned entertainer who has performed all over the world with his tribute to Buddy Holly, including Warner Brothers Movie World, Universal Studios Japan, Thailand, New Zealand, New Caledonia, Norfolk Island and Malaysia. He not only sounds like Buddy but also bears a striking resemblance to the late star. With his amazing energy on stage, Kris continues to wow audiences with his love and dedication to one of the earliest pioneers of rock n roll!
