Lou Vuto and Edge of Reality Band pay tribute to Elvis
America has lost great musicians in history, including Michael Jackson and most recently, Prince last Thursday. With more musicians passing through time, their music is remembered and heard through tribute bands worldwide. On Saturday, a legend is brought to life once again through the rendition of the late Elvis, hosted by Alhambra Shrine Temple.
“Elvis is in the Building” is a show full of tribute musicians with lead performer, Lou Vuto, also known as Elvis. Pigeon Forge’s tribute artists give a new twist on what it means to be a fan. It’s about being a fan-performer. In other words, it’s like being part of a fandom where you are completely immersed in live culture.
Although the Elvis cultural era may be gone, the Elvis tribute band, “Edge of Reality Band” reproduces the original music style of Elvis’s past musicians. Despite the abundance of prerecorded music, Vuto and the tribute band stay true the musical influence of Elvis.
At the end of the night what matters is the representation of the original legends. Although they are no longer able to create music, tribute bands keep legends alive for generations to come. To relive history, purchase tickets starting at $15.
