What You'll Get
A good impersonation can be indistinguishable from the real thing, which is why Method actors are no longer allowed to play dictators. Take in a safer form of imitation with this deal to see Elvis: Spirit Of The King, starring Steve Connolly, at Mechanics Hall. For $22, you get one ticket for general-admission seating on Friday, January 11, at 8 p.m. (a $45 value). Doors open at 7 p.m.
Swiveling his hips in more than 4,000 live performances on the Las Vegas strip and earning the title of Best Elvis Impersonator from the Las Vegas Review-Journal in 2006 and 2007, Steve Connolly honors the king of rock ‘n’ roll with a singing and karate-chopping tribute. Connolly channels Presley’s timeless melodies via ouija board, bringing them to life in the acoustically refined 19th-century opulence of Mechanics Hall. Backed by a live band and harmony vocalists, performances divulge Elvis’s musical history by exploring the tunes, costumes, and more than 300 different lip-curls from the artist’s three-decade career. Spanning the decades from his zoot suits and slicked-back hair in the ’50s to his sequin-emblazoned jumpsuits in the ’70s, spectators re-live each multiplatinum hit, including a seated re-creation of the ’68 comeback special.
As homage to Elvis’ blues-heavy roots, the night includes a special appearance by legendary blues recording artist, James Montgomery.<p>
The elegant vaulted ceilings, intricate archways, and grand pipe organ in Mechanics Hall might evoke the atmosphere of an old-world manor, but its eclectic calendar of events is decidedly modern. The space’s finely calibrated acoustics show off the sounds of classical concerts, ballets, and popular music, and its near-perfect qualities have made it a favorite destination for recording.
