Take a musical journey with Scott Wattles and the Blue Suede Crew and relive some of the greatest music in Rock 'n' Roll history.
Roll up your sleeves and grease back your hair as the Blue Suede Crew pays tribute to the early era of Rock 'n' Roll Music. You'll be dancing in the isle when you hear the music of such artists as Bill Haley, Danny & the Juniors, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis and even the King himself, Elvis Presley. But wait! It only gets better as the Crew launches into a special tribute to the music of the Beatles, the incredible Beach Boys and Mr. Elton John.
The second half of our journey pays tribute to one of the most successful and influential entertainers of all time. The one and only "King of Rock & Roll"... Ranked as one of the top Elvis Tribute Artists in the United States and Canada, the charismatic Scott Wattles skilfully recreates the high energy, Vegas Style show that was Elvis' trademark through the early 70's. Scott's incredible tribute is a clear reminder to all music lovers that Elvis is still "The King"!
