Graceland Ninjaz presents Ninja-Pa-Luau: “Aloha from Dallas!”
Graceland Ninjaz – “Baby Sandman”
Graceland Ninjaz, the self-described “King of Party Bands,” goes for broke in a grab-bag set of 20th-century pop favorites. Led by the flamboyant, hip-gyrating Elvis impersonator David “EzE” McMahon, the band mashes up artists from Lady Gaga to Prince to The Doors in mischievous and prankish arrangements. The band’s “Baby Sandman,” for instance, lures in ears with the opening riffs of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” and then pulls the wool by dropping in the rap of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.” “Smells Like Ice Baby,” on the other hand, combines the bleak grunge of Nirvana with Vanilla Ice’s famous exposé on glacier movements. On August 16, the Ninjaz pay tribute to the King on the 36th anniversary of his passing by staging an epic rock-and-roll show with a luau theme. The other lei-wearing artists slated to perform include Bayou City Outlaws, Back to Blue, Red Liquorish, Under Rage, Josh Knight & the Vintage Experience, Crossing Main, and The Aquaholics.
House of Blues Dallas
To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Dallas keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage. Summoning the spirit and raw grit contained therein, local and national performers enliven the venue’s wood-laden auditorium, lined with art such as Alan Sainte James Boudrot’s A Dream Come True. The historic White Swan building, a remnant of the 1920s coffee-processing plant, hosts this mix of traditional and contemporary, adding its open architecture to every show.
