LAKE GEORGE, NY (December 2009) –– The Seventh Annual LakeGeorge.com Elvis Festival (June 3-6, 2010) may be half a year away, but registrations from Elvis Tribute Artists are already coming in from around the globe. Terry Collins, the festival’s Talent Director, announced today that “The 2010 festival is attracting the largest pool of international talent we’ve ever had, with performers traveling from Brazil, Australia, England and Qatar joining the talent from Canada and the US.”
Festival organizers are already hard at work planning the upcoming festival, which will return to the Lake George Forum in 2010. The Forum recently reopened under new owners. “We are so excited to be returning to the Forum,” commented festival director Jason Sherry. “We had a really great show last year, but the Forum is an exceptional venue for this type of event and we are glad it’s available to us again.”
The four-day festival celebrates the life and music of Elvis Presley. Events include two Las Vegas-style tribute shows, three days of competition featuring more than 50 tribute artists, a classic car parade through Lake George Village, Elvis cruises on Lake George, Elvis After Hours Parties, an Elvis Collectibles sale and much more.
Friday night’s show, “Tribute to Rock and Roll History,” features tributes to Elvis and other rock and roll legends including Tom Jones, James Brown, Rod Stewart, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison. Saturday’s “Elvis is Back” concert features Shawn Klush’s internationally acclaimed tribute to Elvis Presley. “We are happy that Shawn is returning to perform at the festival this year,” says Sherry. “Ever since Shawn won the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Competition in Memphis, he has become the hottest Elvis tribute act around.”
