Flat Rock Playhouse is proud to present the triumphant return of Donny Edwards: An Authentic Heart & Soul Tribute to “The King” playing April 7th through the 17th on the Flat Rock Playhouse mainstage. Last year’s sold out concerts are true indicators that this year will be as much of a success – if not MORE!
Donny Edwards is an international, multi-award winning professional Elvis tribute artist – the ONLY tribute artist invited to perform at Graceland. Today, he is one of the most sought after performers in the business, bringing his show to stages in casinos, theaters/venues, fairs/festivals, corporate/special events, cruises and production shows, world-wide. He is a versatile performer with the ability to re-enact each era of Elvis’ life and career. His dynamic performance will take you back to the 1950’s and the early years of rock n’ roll, getting you “all shook up” all over again. Then you’ll go on a ride through the 1960’s, from Elvis’ biggest hit movies to the famous black leather “68 Comeback Special.” Finally you’ll revisit the legendary Las Vegas years of the 1970’s as Donny recreates the performances that made Elvis the one and only “King of Rock n’ Roll.”
Throughout his career, Donny has had the opportunity to work beside many of the original musicians that performed with Elvis Presley himself: The Jordanaires, The Sweet Inspirations, DJ Fontana, Charlie Hodge and Bob Moore to name a few. Donny has also had the pleasure of working with Elvis’s inner circle such as Sonny West, Al Dvorin, Charles Stone and Ed Bonja.
Elvis Presley Enterprises and CKX, the publicly listed operator of Elvis Presley’s Graceland estate, have hired Donny for tribute shows, TV spots and corporate events, many times over the years.
Not only is Donny known for his riveting live performances, but he has also appeared in numerous TV shows and ads, including ABC’s “Monday Night Football”, MTV’s “Viva La Bam”, CBS’s “The Young and The Restless”, ABC’s, “The Next Best Thing” and many Elvis character TV ads in the UK, Europe and Australia including “Kingsmill Bread” and “Toshiba”. He regularly sells out shows, performing with an nine piece band, all across the US and in countries such as Canada, Japan and Australia and to audiences as large as 25,000.
Donny Edwards maintains a performance of remarkable authenticity. His humility, charm and southern manner, coupled with his uncanny sound and appearance, will make you feel as if you are watching “The King” himself.
Donny Edwards Live: An Authentic Heart and Soul Tribute to the King is on stage now at the Flat Rock Playhouse. The ONLY Elvis Tribute Artist to be invited to sing at Graceland, Donny is here in the studio with us this morning and you won’t believe your eyes OR your ears!
