The next Elvis Disco takes place in Holland�s finest and most famous rock and roll venue: The Cruise Inn, in Amsterdam on Saturday June 28, 2008. Doors open at 9 pm and close officially at 3 am the next morning.
The Elvis Disco continues to do their very best in organising this annual dance party as long as there is enough interest from the audience. Faithful visitors know they get their money�s worth and know how to find the Disco. For those who are interested but have not visited the Cruise Inn: �Come along and share the fun!�
After 11 years (�last year the Elvis Disco celebrated its 10th anniversary, being the longest running and most famous Elvis party of The Netherlands) Elvis fans from beyond the Dutch have found their way to the Cruise in, such as fans from Belgium, Germany and England.
That the Cruise Inn has faith in the ELVISDISCO is shown by the fact that they are willing to invest. As a result of that it is possible for a Dutch and a foreign band to climb the stage every year. The strength of the concept is emphasized by a PARTY with kindred spirits in a relaxed atmosphere. This year the organisers fall back on the theme of BLUE HAWAII. The budget for decorating The Cruise Inn has been raised to make it even look more accordingly than previous years. By doing this they try to bring some of the easy-going atmosphere of Elvis�s favourite holiday destination to the venue. You are kindly asked to participate! Bear in mind:�It�s Not Just Another Hawaiian Party!� as this is th� party!
Last year�s opening act is back by popular demand! The Reno Brothers� (named after the first motion picture of Elvis Presley) left a good impression. Sufficient reason for inviting them back in 2008. Six weeks prior to their gig of last years at the Elvisdisco, the band had a significant member change. The new recruited guitar player (Rolf) had to practise � besides the Reno Brothers repertoire � also the special Elvis-set! Despite the short time span the band performed a solid show with great music. With the arrival of the new guitarist the band turned a new page. In my opinion the Reno Brothers were hard and rough in the past. Now they have become more melodic. Especially when the guitarists are challenging each other it is a true feast for the ears. Nowadays the band tends more towards country rock.
Each year it becomes more difficult to find suitable bands for the Elvisdisco. This year the attention was caught by Mark Keeley�s Good Rockin� Tonight (-UK-). A band with a big name and a large following in England with just too few appearances here in Holland, which is a great pity. The band has produced no less than 5 CD�s dedicated to the Presley repertoire! We can trust that these guys are mega Elvis fans! Good Rockin� Tonight sides with all the other top rock and roll bands from England with performances outside of the island. Their last show in Holland was during Rock Around The Jukebox in Rosmalen in October of 2007. The Cruise-Inn exists by the goodwill of volunteers and does no longer receive a municipal subsidiary. Fortunately the Disco is able to maintain the entrance fee at � 15, which is the same amount as last year . (Cruise-Inn members pay � 10). Tickets are only available at the door.
As said, doors will open at 21:00 hours and an Elvis stall will be present. The music is in capable hands of specialised Elvis dee-jays who will spin the wax until 3 a.m. Like last year a female dee-jay (Claudia!) will take place behind the turning tables again.
ALL Elvis fans are welcome! If you want ELVISDISCO #11 to succeed, than please SPREAD THE WORD, or BRING YOUR FRIENDS.
