Well, in real life, they didn’t perform together on stage, but they were friends. And, evidently, they sang duets in Elvis’s private suite. (Story at Wikipedia: here.)
You can see this dreamy line-up at DHPAC on August 1st: Elvis and Tom Jones in one, high-energy, afternoon show!
Here’s the press release:
The Dix Hills Performing Arts Center presents…
The Music of Elvis with Steve Mitchell &
The Music of Tom Jones with Tim Conley
Sunday, August 1, 2010 at 2:00 pm
Artists faithfully recreate two of the sexiest and most dynamic male vocalists of the last 50 years live on stage in a Sunday matinee
The Dix Hills Performing Arts Center will present both Steve Mitchell as the late Elvis Presley and Tom Conley as the great Tom Jones, Sunday, August 1 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $25, available online: here.
Sitting on the loading dock at an electrical supply house where they worked in Memphis, the Burnett Brothers wouldn’t let the young truck driver join their doo wop singing because, well, he was a mere truck driver. That didn’t discourage
young Elvis Presley from cutting a record “That’s All Right Momma” at nearby Sun Records as a birthday present for his mother. Producer Sam Phillips heard the young man sing and the rest was history.
Overcoming tuberculosis as a child, and forced to work in a glove factory as a teenager to support his young family, few would have predicted that Tom Jones would ever have become an international star and a household name on several
continents – unless they heard him sing at a family gathering.
Now, The Dix Hills Performing Arts Center will recreate the magic of both stunning performers with the help of two talented performers who not only match the sounds of the original, but convincingly become them for an afternoon.
An Elvis Tribute artist for more than 18 years, Steve Mitchell has been part of the most successful Elvis tribute shows in Atlantic City, Memphis and Las Vegas, where Elvis spent much of his professional life at the Hilton, and has performed
as Elvis with original members of Elvis’ own band such as drummer DJ Fontana. In 2008, he won first place in the prestigious Lake George Elvis Festival. He has also appeared on local radio and cable, as well as NBC’s Today Show.
Tim Conley began his career at the age of 13 as – ironically – an Elvis artist. He has performed at venues across the U.S. as both Elvis and Tom Jones, and has appeared on numerous television shows. He has produced several successful
Legends shows throughout the East Coast. An accomplished musician, his ability to mimic Mr. Jones’ voice is matched only by his authentically sensual mannerisms and dance moves that will not disappoint die-hard Jones fans or
those who are just looking to enjoy an afternoon of rousing entertainment.
