Last night was a bit of a treat.
Arrived at the Continental a bit early and had a nice chat with Bill Shirley.
On the bill at the CC was Ted Roddy’s King Conjure Orchestra.
The evening was a tribute to the Elvis of the 50’s.
I am not a huge Elvis fan, but something about a 11 piece orchestra with a horn section and female backing vocals kicking out the jams in that space made me a fan for the night.
It was a great crowd. The cool thing was that, while they played Elvis songs, Ted Roddy was not an Elvis impersonator. He did, however, sing in the 50’s Elvis style. It was a true rock and roll party.
