Baby boomers will surely be in Las Vegas heaven this weekend as Jerry Presley, Elvis’ second cousin, takes the stage Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Eastside Cannery’s Marilyn’s Lounge.
Presley has spent much of his career performing with such classic acts as the Platters, the Coasters, Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs and Jackie Wilson. But since 1969, he’s been focusing primarily on his tribute to his second cousin. By now, Elvis’ songs are so iconic that, Presley says, “if you forget the words, most of the audiences can sing it for you.”
And the real nice thing is the concert price: It’s FREE!
Future Eastside Cannery shows are scheduled to include such performers as Gary Lewis and the Playboys, the Association, Herman’s Hermits, The Guess Who, The Turtles and Rare Earth.
In addition, Eastside Cannery recently began hosting “Classic Rock Saturdays” events.
Eastside Cannery Casino & Hotel is located at 5255 Boulder Highway. Friday and Saturday shows start at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. 702-856-5470.
