Chris MacDonald’s Memories of Elvis in Concert is set to rock at The Plaza Live in Orlando on the eve of the Iconic Nascar’s Daytona 500.

Comedian Ed Murphy’s reference to his affinity for Elvis movies “I’m gonna win this race” and “Lemonade that cool refreshing drink” fondly comes to mind. Scripts weren’t that important. Elvis was cool, winning races, beating up bad guys, getting a girl or two and singing songs like Spin Out and Viva Las Vegas, songs that are in the set list for Chris MacDonald’s Memories of Elvis at the Plaza Live Orlando .With special guest star Elvis Original Drummer D.J.
