It has been 40 years since Elvis left the building… Join Justin Ploof and The Throwbacks for one very special night of remembering the King of Rock n’ Roll – Elvis Presley! Be part of the excitement on Fri., Aug. 25, 8pm, at the Zumbrota State Theatre.
The evening will feature classics such as Heartbreak Hotel, Don’t Be Cruel, All Shook Up, Stuck On You, Good Luck Charm, Return To Sender, Suspicious Minds, Burning Love…and many, many more. And behind the music is a story. Justin Ploof and The Throwbacks bring you vintage footage and brief narration to accompany it. Not only will you “rock out” to the music, but you will have a number of “I didn’t know that” moments throughout the evening – a complete “blast from the past” concert experience.
In 1954, Elvis Presley would kick off a musical revolution by modernizing traditional genres such as blues, country and bluegrass for contemporary (and more youthful) audiences. Throw in a charismatic stage presence with then-scandalous hip-swings and body contortions, and it’s easy to see why Presley set the charts (and hearts) ablaze.
August 16th marks the 40th anniversary of the passing of Elvis, yet he has never left the hearts of music fans the world over. Celebrate his life and legend with Justin Ploof and The Throwbacks!
