Art Fein's Annual Elvis Tribute In A Cozy Setting At Cody's VivaCantina In...
No other performer in American pop history had the reach and impact of Elvis Presley, the Memphis fireball who exploded America’s identity and wholly re-defined our sense of fashion, taste and social predilections. Equally deified and vilified, he was the original cultural warrior, one who embodied our still ongoing struggles over racial division, chastity versus lust, even proffering a choice of destinations in the ultimate Heaven or Hell itinerary. This annual birthday tribute—loaded with such potent acolytes as Ronnie Mack, Troy Walker, Jimmy Angel, Lisa Finnie, Groovy Rednecks, all performing Elvis songs, reliably provides as fractious and variegated an earful as the man himself. Elvis’ song canon offers innumerable flavors, blues mysticism, overstimulated rockabilly, lusty rhythm & blues and the grotesque pop of those stunningly ludicrous movie soundtracks (who could forget “No Room to Rhumba in a Sports car,” or, better still, “Dominick, the Impotent Bull?”). The King is dead. Long live the King.—Jonny Whiteside
