Elvis: Aloha 40 Performers Entertain Crowds at County Complex

Elvis would have been proud.

Crowds gathered at the DeKalb County Complex for two entertaining shows Saturday as Smithville helped kick off Elvis Week 2013 in a tribute called Elvis: Aloha 40.

The program featured an opening performance by the legendary Stamps Quartet, followed by a full on Elvis tribute show, with the group - as they did for six years with Presley - providing the back-up vocals. Smithville resident, Tom Duggin, provided the vocals for the Elvis part of the show, backed by Tim Colwell and a local group of musicians known as "TCB." Much like the Presley stage show of the 70's, Elvis: Aloha 40 featured a brass ensemble on stage as well as female back-up singers, in addition to the core musicians and the Stamps Quartet

Elvis Week is held every year with a number of festivities to honor the late singer in his hometown of Memphis.
