(PRWEB) October 31, 2013
36 years ago (August 16, 1977) the world lost one of the greatest entertainers and pop culture icons of the 20th century. Many are still lonesome for the energy, charisma and incredible voice of one of the most enduring icons of music history. A celebration of the life and music of Elvis Presley is scheduled November 8th at the Patchogue Theatre in Patchogue (Long Island) New York, when tribute artist Chris MacDonald presents his Memories of Elvis in Concert. Elvis Presley, recognized by TIME magazine as the "Artist of the Century," has sold more records than any other artist or group in the history of modern music. Even after death, his image and music continue to be loved and celebrated throughout the world. July 5, 2004 was established as the official 50th Birthday of Rock-n-Roll commemorating Sun Records release of Elvis Presley’s song “That’s all right Mama”. With recent number ones on Billboard and Great Britain’s charts, his songs being used on film sound tracks and television commercials and a rumored hologram in the works, Elvis once again proves he is gone, but not forgotten.
Keeping the memory alive at countless venues throughout the country Chris MacDonald lovingly brings back the memories of the “King of Rock-n-Roll” with his tribute Memories of Elvis in Concert. Chris’s show is not an overdone impersonation. It is a natural heartfelt tribute.

He has also performed in concert with Elvis Presley’s original back up group The Jordanaires and D.J. Fontana at the Hard Rock Live. Chris also had the honor of working with The Jordanaires on his original country music CD entitled No Misconception.
