Elvis’s Birthday Bash
Elvis Presley’s impact on all music that came after him is impossible to tally. Bob Dylan, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, U2 – they’re all impossible to imagine without Elvis having paved the way.
For several decades, the Capital District-based Mark Gamsjager and The Lustre Kings have been keeping the sound of early rockabilly alive, both in the region and across the U.S. and around the world. They bring an immediacy to the joyful music with a dark underbelly that has compelled performers like Wanda Jackson, the Queen of Rockabilly, as well as Bill Kirchen, Eddie Angel and Robert Gordon, to draft them into the service of rock ‘n’ roll revivalism.
For the annual Elvis Birthday Bash at Helsinki Hudson – marking what would have been the King’s 83nd birthday – the Lustre Kings will be joined by other members of the region’s talented rock ‘n’ roll revival scene.
