Spotlight 29 welcomes "Elvis the Musical"

16 July 2008

COACHELLA, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Simply put, Elvis Presley changed music forever. With one swivel of his hips, he brought down all previous structure of American music and performance and ushered in a new era and a sound that is still influencing artists and their music today.

Now, Spotlight 29 Casino celebrates the life and music of Elvis Presley as it welcomes "Elvis the Musical" to the Spotlight Showroom stage on August 16. So much more than a tribute concert, "Elvis the Musical" is a Broadway-style, multi-media musical show with audio, video, live musicians with personal appearances of Elvis' personal friends, associates and musicians recreating the musical career of Elvis Presley.

The production stars Paul Casey, widely considered to be the world's best Elvis impersonator. Casey has been featured in multiple national publications, including People magazine, is the official Elvis for the City of Las Vegas, and twice was named the city's "Entertainer of the Year."

The musical spans Elvis' entire career, from 1954-1977, and features 42 songs and 16 costume changes. The production also stars friends and others who were influential to the Elvis mystique including Barbara Lee, author of the recently released "The King, the Queen & the Love Machine"; Hans Fiebich, maker of Elvis' famous sunglasses (and others, such as Elton John); Patti Parry, close personal friend and only female member of Elvis' inner circle, the "Memphis Mafia"; and George Barris, who made the cars for Elvis' films.

Tickets for "Elvis the Musical" are $35 and are available now at and at the Spotlight 29 Casino Gift Shop or by calling (800) 585-3737. Show time is 8 p.m.
