A Tribute to the King - Starring Scot Bruce
Musician/actor Scot Bruce celebrates what made Elvis not only the King of Rock & Roll... but the King of Cool! See the magic that made a generation swoon in the 1950’s and 60’s, before the white jumpsuit, sunglasses, and the glitter of Vegas.
Along with his rockin’ 4-piece band, Bruce meticulously and respectfully recreates the electrifying musical excitement of Elvis in his prime... right down to the vintage instruments, the hip ‘threads’ and the grease in the hair. From Elvis’ humble beginnings at Sun Records, to the Ed Sullivan show (when America caught its first glimpse of him), through his Hollywood career... and to his black leather-clad, 1968 ‘Comeback’ TV Special.
Bruce has performed in sold-out venues world wide, and has won critical acclaim for his uncanny musical portrayal. This is one show guaranteed to have you All Shook Up!

“Some people are impressionists. These guys leave an impression”. Says Bill Miller, owner of Johnny Cash.com about Cash’d Out, a San Diego based band that channels Johnny Cash in about as close a manner to the real thing as it gets.
After thirteen years, traveling hundreds of thousands of miles on the road and winning over as many fans, fans who still continually tell the group how grateful they are that Cash’d Out so righteously carries the torch of the Johnny Cash Show.
Besides music critics anointing Cash’d Out as "the next best thing to Johnny Cash”, their highlights have been many:
W.S. Holland, Johnny Cash’s longtime drummer, has sat in with Cash’d Out; front man, Douglas Benson, has played Johnny’s cherry sunburst Guild guitar (courtesy of Mr. Miller); “Cindy Cash came to a show and was moved to give me a glass locket that was her father’s,” explains Benson; Longtime Johnny Cash manager Lou Robin has also been to several Cash’d Out shows and claimed that if he closed his eyes it was as if “going back in time.”; And most recently, an unforgettable evening performing the music of Johnny Cash with the San Diego Symphony as a special event for their Summer Pops Series.
Get ready to experience the top act celebrating the music of Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Hank William, a touch of Johnny Cash & THE BEST Tim McGraw tribute show! Vegas McGraw and his talented crew have opened up for 42 National Acts all over the United States, including Taylor Swift, Trace Adkins, Jason Aldean, Charlie Daniels, and Blake Shelton.
Buddy . . . The Buddy Holly Story opened at the American Heartland Theatre in Kansas City in January, 1996. Fans were quick to realize that before John Mueller played Buddy Holly, never has the rock and roll legend been so faithfully portrayed. Aside from winning a Drama Desk award, John's performance is perhaps best summed up by original Crickets member Niki Sullivan. "John is a reincarnation of Buddy Holly. He is that good. He has the same determination in his eyes that Buddy did and when John is on stage, he is a totally dynamic performer, just like Buddy. John is awesome."
John Mueller was raised on the electrifying music of Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and of course, Buddy Holly. Playing along to that great old rock and roll with his Sears and Roebuck drum set and Dutch Masters cigar box guitar, a young John Mueller unknowingly began a career that would take him throughout the United States, playing his music and acting for the stage, film and television.
Total Distortion was formed to pay homage to Social Distortion, one of America's first 1970s punk rock bands.

Backed by his fellow band members Chris Cunningham, Shawn Barry and Greg Grmolyes, Vercelli has led Total Distortion onstage to pay homage to Social D in venues throughout California, Arizona, Nevada and Texas.
Since forming in 1988 in Southern California, Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys have become one of the world’s most beloved Americana/Roots acts, drawing from the deep musical waters that flow just beneath the surface of Rock & Roll’s fertile soil. A childhood passion for Country, Doo-Wop, and Rhythm & Blues 45s led Sandy (born Robert Williams) to pursue a singing career as a teenager, beginning a life in music that continues decades later. And as his personal record collection continues to grow (75,000 and counting), so does the depth of the musical influences that stream through his songwriting and singing style A critically acclaimed tribute to Tex-Mex hero Freddy Fender, released at the beginning of the 2020 lockdown, points the way forward for Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys as they continue on a path of musical growth. After nearly 35 years on the road, and more than two dozen releases to their credit, they remain key figures on the ever-changing Americana circuit, both on record and in live appearances.
