Sept. 12-15, 2013
Welcome to the new website for the first ever, South Carolina Elvis Festival produced by Sherry Management, LLC in association with Tributes Radio. The event is part of the ElvisFestival.com series of events, and is licensed by Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. The event will take place at the Newberry Opera House in the historic city of Newberry, South Carolina, with additional events being held around town.
The festival will feature two headline shows. Friday’s “Memories” stars Graceland’s 2012 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Ben Portsmouth with an opening performance by Michael Chambliss, this year’s Georgia Elvis Festival champion. Chambliss will be performing music from earlier in Elvis’ career, while Portsmouth’s set will feature a tribute to Elvis’ Vegas years.
Saturday’s show “Aloha, Southern Style” stars the very first Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Shawn Klush, who will pay tribute to the 40th anniversary of Elvis’ acclaimed concert, Aloha from Hawaii. The event was televised around the globe and had more viewers than the moon landing. Klush’s performance will be preceded by two opening acts. But first, Travis Powell who won this year’s Lake George Elvis Festival and Myrtle Beach Ultimate Elvis Preliminary. Powell will debut his tribute to Elvis’ ’68 Comeback Special.
The festival will also feature a three-day preliminary to the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest in Memphis, held during Elvis Week in August. The South Carolina Elvis Festival champion will go to Memphis and represent our festival.
