The Corcoran Rotary Club will host a “Night with Elvis” fundraiser Saturday, April 22 starting at 5 p.m. at the Recreation Association of Corcoran.
General admission tickets for the event are $50 and VIP tickets are also available for $75 per person. Tickets include cocktail hour with appetizers and host bar of beer and wine. The JC Meat Company will cater the event and the menu will include grilled filet bites with garlic butter, barbecue sausage bites, mini sandwiches, min quiche and a full charcuterie table.
Following cocktail hour will be a 45-minute show by Jeremy “Elvis” Pearce. Pearce has been performing his Elvis tribute show since he was eight years old! What started out as an entry in his third grade talent show has turned into a lifelong passion. Jeremy’s love and respect for Elvis and his music shines through in every performance.
Before turning professional, Jeremy won several Elvis impersonator contests. Since then he has won audiences over in more than 4,000 live shows in casinos, nightclubs, fairs, conventions, fan club events, private parties, etc. Jeremy is based in Fresno, California, and regularly performs up and down the state. He has also performed in the Elvis meccas of Las Vegas and Memphis, and had a number of highly acclaimed JEP Promo 2engagements in Lake Tahoe at the same hotel where Elvis used to perform. Jeremy is one of the most popular Elvis Tribute Artists in the world (with over 200 annual bookings) and over 300 dues paying members in the Official Jeremy “Elvis” Pearce Fan Club. Jeremy has worked with a number of the biggest names in the Elvis World – DJ Fontana (Elvis’ original drummer and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer), The Sweet Inspirations (Elvis’ legendary backing vocalists), as well as friends and associates of the King including several of the leading ladies from his films.
Jeremy’s show is a carefully crafted “Tribute to the King.” He performs a variety of Elvis’ hits, from the 50’s favorites to the Las Vegas show-stoppers. The show is enhanced by the stunning professional jumpsuits made from Elvis’ original patterns (by B&K Enterprises), satin scarves for the ladies, and a performance that is true to Elvis’ voice, moves, and mannerisms. Jeremy has been endorsed by several Elvis fan clubs that are registered with Graceland – these organizations do not usually make endorsements.
All proceeds from the event will go towards the Corcoran Chamber of Commerce for a beautiful mural project to enhance downtown Corcoran.
Tickets can be purchased at The Corcoran Journal, the Corcoran Chamber of Commerce at 1040 Whitley Avenue or can be purchased at www.corcoranrotary.org.
