Alhambra to open 2018 music series with Elvis, Buddy Holly tributes

Posted

The Alhambra Theatre & Dining will kick off its 2018 Alhambra After Dark music series schedule by celebrating Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly.

Kevin Mills will return to the Alhambra from Feb. 7-11 with his award-winning tribute to Presley in a new show, “Elvis is Back!” Mills’ authentic portrayal and interpretation of Presley has made him one of the country’s most sought-after and popular performers in the industry, according to the Alhambra. Considered a specialist in the business, Mills has appeared in dozens of high profile productions, including “Entertainment Tonight,” “Inside Edition,” “48 Hours,” ABC’s “Primetime,” FOX Television and CNN. Most notable is his starring role and lead performance in “Elvis, The Beginning” on A&E. Mills was crowned Grand Champion at the 2007 Ultimate Elvis Cruise by performers who shared the stage with Elvis. He was also awarded third place in 2009 and second place in 2010 at the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest in Memphis, Tennessee.

The Rave-Ons, led by one of Alhambra’s most popular performers, Todd Meredith, will bring their rendition of Buddy Holly and The Crickets to the Alhambra from March 28 to April 1 in a show entitled, “That’ll Be the Day.” Made up of cast members from the national tour of the hit musical, “Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story,” The Rave-Ons are a high energy rock and roll band originally formed to revitalize the music of Buddy Holly and The Crickets. Meredith has performed the part of Holly in 20 separate productions of the musical, as well as in various tribute concerts for the past decade. The Rave-Ons have played together all over the country, delighting audiences in New York City, Reno, Memphis, Nashville, Jacksonville, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Colorado, Missouri and even Holly's hometown of Lubbock, Texas.

Through its “After Dark” series, the Alhambra offers live entertainment beyond its traditional Broadway-style theatrical performances. For tickets and additional information about these and other Alhambra Theatre & Dining events, call (904) 641-1212, or visit www.alhambrajax.com.
