The King is gone but he’s not forgotten. Elvis Presley would have turned 84 in Jan 2019, but his music remains as timeless as ever. In tribute, The Elvis Birthday Bash Band is once again hitting the road for a string of performances designed to delight every Elvis fan, young and old alike. The all-star combo is anchored by Mark Gamsjager & The Lustre Kings and rounded out by Ian Carlton , Mike Kelley, Mike “Chops” LaConte & Todd Bradley with additional special guests scheduled for select dates. The Lustre Kings are among the nation’s premiere roots rock acts, with fans from coast to coast & a schedule that takes them from coast to coast. Critically-hailed guitarist Deke Dickerson says “Like a fine wine, The Lustre Kings just get better with each passing year.”https://www.beachlandballroom.com/event/1778481/
Beginning with 1995’s Mark Gamsjager Rocks & The Lustre Kings Roll, the band staked a claim to a modern take on the reverb-driven sounds of early rock, leaning also on touchstones of country, blues and R&B. Other artists, like the famed “Queen of Rock,” Wanda Jackson, hear the authenticity in The Lustre Kings. Perhaps that’s why she hired Gamsjager and the group as her backing unit for many tours. “I have worked with many bands around the world through the years,” Jackson says, “and none are better than Mark Gamsjager and The Lustre Kings. Their fine showmanship and musical ability make them the greatest in my book. They rock!!”
Getting back to his rockabilly and Americana roots, David brought back The Ramrods with his longtime bass player, Steve Bennett, and veteran Cleveland drummer JD Hades. David Loy and The Ramrods recently opened for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Wanda Jackson.
David Loy and The Ramrods can also be seen backing folk/rockabilly legend, Alan Leatherwood in his live performances. When not playing with The Ramrods, David can be seen backing Cleveland’s own Johnny Fay. David is currently in the studio, working on an album of new rockabilly material with the Ramrods, with an album of ‘60s inspired originals to follow. Regardless of the genre, David has received positive reviews throughout his career.
