Current Cast Lineup

Following is the cast lineup for the 2010 European tour:

Starring Elvis Presley (via video)

Musical Director & Conductor Joe Guercio with full orchestra

Members of the original TCB Band

Female Vocalists The Sweet Inspirations

Male Vocalists The Imperials

Orchestra members other than the principal players who travel with us are hired in the cities and regions our show appears. We also engage a local choir in some cities on our tours.

Song Lineup

The 2010 show will have a dynamic song program similar to that of previous tours, although adjustments in repertoire do occur from tour to tour and production values of the presentation will get a real boost, including the use of Elvis footage camera loads not used on previous tours.

The Elvis performance footage comes from these programs: the Elvis (a.k.a. the '68 Comeback) television special, the 1973 Elvis: Aloha from Hawaii, via Satellite television special, and the MGM concert films Elvis, That's the Way It Is (1970) and Elvis on Tour(1972).

All our singers and musicians play live. The Elvis performance footage is presented with virtually all the sound removed but for Elvis's voice. The only pre-recorded music you hear in our show is Elvis Presley's voice and what small amounts of the original accompanying music could not be removed from the Elvis performance material.
