"Elvis is alive” or so Elvis’ biggest fans say today!  Elvis and his music live today because of Elvis Tribute Artist like Andy King (Andreas Stolzenthaler) from Sulzfeld Germany and Moses Snow a local Fort Worth ETA.

 “Elvis on My Mind” starring Andy King, Moses Snow and Shake Rattle & Roll opens its US/European tour in Tyler Texas at the Liberty Hall Friday, May 17th, continues to the VFW Seven Points, May 18th and finishes it’s Texas tour at the Plaza Theatre May 19th in Garland, Texas. In August Decatur Texas’ own Moses Snow and East Texas’ own Shake Rattle & Roll will travel to Europe to join Andy King & the Memphis Riders for two shows in Switzerland and five shows in Germany. They have also been invited to perform at the 18th European Elvis Festival, August 16th - 18th in Bad Nauheim Germany! Bad Nauheim has hosted the "European Elvis Festival" since 2002 in cooperation with the Elvis-Presley-Gesellschaft eV (EPG), the largest Elvis club in the Germany.

Andy King’s very authentic voice, like that of the "King of Rock'n'Roll", thrilled audiences all over Europe and the United States. When you close your eyes and listen to Andy’s voice, you'll be convinced the real King, Elvis Presley is on stage. Andy King, who has been in the ETA World for 15 years, is accompanied by his band of six years, The Memphis Riders.  Andy’s band, one of the leading Elvis show bands in Europe, consist of some the top musicians.  Steffen Andres (bass), Jürgen Herb (drums), Richard Wagner (guitar) and Frank Söhner (piano) compliments Andy King’s performance. In 2017, Andy King & The Memphis Riders was honored with the trade media award Germany’s "Artist of the Year 2017", not ETA but Artist selected from all artist in Germany. This month January 2019 he was awarded “The Spirit of Elvis Award’ at the European Elvis Championship in the UK.  This is a very prestige’s award. You can check his website for additional information - www.andyking.de

 “Elvis on my Mind” takes you on a journey through all of Elvis’ genres. Moses Snow, the fastest rising 15-year-old ETA of the year, starts your journey in the 50’s. Hear 50’s Rock'n'Roll hits like "Hound Dog", "Blue Suede Shoes" and 60s movie hits like "Jailhouse Rock" and "Love Me Tender”. Moses is the winner of Florida’s Elvis Extravaganza in West Palm Beach January 2019, Memphis’ Image of the King Non-Pro Division in August 2018 and winner of the Oklahoma State Fair Elvis Extravaganza in September 2018. 

 Andy King opens his set with the true-to-the-original Las Vegas show based on Elvis Presley's album "On Stage" and the documentary "Elvis - That's the Way It Is". The show clearly describes the triumphant return of Elvis Presley to live concerts after spending most of the 60’s in his film career. The 1970 shows included songs that were not associated with Elvis at the time, such as the classic Elvis hits. "Yesterday" (The Beatles), "Runaway" (Del Shannon), "Polk Salad Annie" (Tony Joe White) or "Bridge Over Troubled Water" (Simon & Garfunkel).  In addition to the usual hits, there is a tasteful selection of classics and rather unknown, yet typical Elvis songs, including blues, gospel, country and soul.

 Shake Rattle & Roll, a national and locally recognized 50 & 60's tribute show group, kicks off the show with their high energy tunes. The Las Vegas Doo-Wop winners will take you on a ride of your lives with their toe-tappin’, twisting mix of rock and roll, comedy and rockin’ tunes.

 Andy has many accomplishments in the US and Europe.  He placed every year since 2016 in the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest sanctioned by Elvis Presley Enterprise, Inc.
