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, who have also accompanied Wanda Jackson, Bill Kirchen and Robert Gordon,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.”

The Lustre Kings boast a devoted international fanbase and continue to perform over 150 dates a year, including regular stops at nightspots, festivals and casinos like Tip Top Deluxe, Skinny Dennis and The Continental Club; Viva Las Vegas, Heritage Folk Festival and the Rockin 50s Fest; and the Potawamoti Hotel. Gamsjager, a Gretsch guitars endorsee who has taught for the National Guitar Workshop, has been a guest at prestigious venues ranging from Kennedy Center (Washington DC) to the Montreal Jazz Fest.

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!!”
