The king is dead, but his music lives on.

Now and then, Elvis shows roll through Grand Junction, treating fans to an assortment of hits from the past. George Gray and the Elvis Experience Band will take the stage at the Amphitheater at Las Colonias Park on September 12.

The evening of Elvis music will kick off the Museums of Western Colorado's History Alive! Colorado West Chautauqua weekend which will feature a variety of historical presentations including Walter Cronkite and Julia Child.

If you want to step back in time and experience a little bit of Elvis, this is your chance.

It's been more than 40 years since Elvis Presley died, leaving behind 108 Billboard chart hits, the most in the history of the charts. Amazingly, 80 of those songs made the top 40. It's been estimated that Elvis has sold more than one billion records worldwide.

While rock and roll music changed dramatically from the 50s to the 70s and 80s, Elvis was unquestionably a pioneer and a ground-breaker on the American music scene. As the years go by we still enjoy reliving those great songs.and the mystique of Elvis.

The music of Elvis continues to come alive on stage via tribute bands like George Gray and the Elvis Experience Band. I suppose that will continue as long as there are Elvis fans still living

It should be a fun night out, and the price is right - $9.50. Tickets are on sale now.
