WABASH — Celebrating the greatest entertainer of all time, “The Elvis Tribute Artist Spectacular” will take place at the Honeywell Center at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 20, 2019.
Join Elvis impersonators Shawn Kush, Cody Ray Slaughter and Ryan Pelton as they perform in “The Elvis Tribute Artist Spectacular.” This concert celebrates the music of the Elvis Presley era, beginning with the early rock-a-billy years, his time in the military, his movie-making years and his 1968 comeback special in black leather. The show will close with the Las Vegas and concert years.
Appearing as special guests will be “The Blackwoods,” who have been awarded eight Grammys, 27 Dove Awards, five All-American Music Awards, the Publishers’ Choice Diamond Award, and the coveted Living Legend Award in gospel music. In addition to all the accolades, the family has also performed with the likes of Johnny Cash and June Carter, Dolly Parton, Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers, and pop icons such as Frankie Avalon, Cher, and Sammy Davis, Jr.
“The Blackwoods” were a big part of the Branson music scene for many years with their own show at the Ozark Jubilee Theater before moving to Pigeon Forge, where they based their show for 15 years. Today, the Blackwood family legacy is carried on by R.W. Blackwood, Jr. and his wife Donna.
Ticket prices are $39 and $75 and may be purchased online at www.honeywellcenter.org or by calling the Honeywell Foundation box office at (260) 563-1102.
