Throughout 2010, Elvis fans around the globe are gathering to celebrate Elvis' 75th birthday. One of the most-anticipated events of the year just got even better with the addition of many new musical artists, friends of Elvis, and fun segments on his life and career. Hosted by Elvis' friend Jerry Schilling, The Elvis Cruise will be sailing Nov 4 through Nov 8, 2010, on the Carnival Fascination from Jacksonville, Florida, to Nassau, Bahamas.
In addition to the musical artists already announced, which include Terry Mike Jeffrey, Andy Childs, and The Memphis Boys with Bobo Moreno, guests on the 2010 cruise will also be entertained by James Burton and Glen D. Hardin, original members of Elvis' TCB Band; DJ Fontana, Elvis' drummer for 14 years; and Jamie Aaron Kelley, who is an Elvis fan favorite and has performed the king's music all over the world. Leading them all will be Elvis' friend and the conductor of many of his live concerts, Joe Guercio.
The Elvis tribute artists performing on the ship are the best in business and include the winners of last three Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contests: Shawn Klush, Brandon Bennett, and Bill Cherry. Other Elvis tribute artists who will keep the ship rockin' 'n' rollin' include David Allen, Mark Anthony, Kevin Mills, Gino Monopoli (pictured above entertaining cruisers on the Malt Shop Memories Cruise), Ted Torres, Victor Trevino, Jr., and Jay Zanier. Backing up these amazing performers one again in 2010 will be The EAS Band.
In addition to the musical guests, Elvis' stylist and close personal friend Larry Geller will share many personal stories and memories. Fans on the cruise will also learn what it was like to star in a movie with Elvis from Diane McBain and Warren Berlinger, who costarred with Elvis in one of his classic films, Spinout. Roy Turner and Jim Palmer, Elvis historians and documentarians, will share a screening of their recent documentary "Homecoming: Tupelo Welcomes Elvis Home" and will show clips that have never before been seen by the public.
Also, just added to the incredible line-up is a fun segment that takes guests behind the scenes of Viva ELVIS by Cirque du Soleil when members of the creative team show video clips and photos, play music and share their stories on creating the new show that is getting Vegas "all shook up."
