Award-Winning Tribute Artist DOUG CHURCH-The True Voice of Elvis-Returns to Historic Regent Theatre

Jan 08, 2015

On Saturday, January 24th at 8pm and Sunday, January 25th, 2015 at 2pm, the historic Regent Theatre in Arlington, Massachusetts, will present DOUG CHURCH—“The True Voice of Elvis”—in concert accompanied by Boston’s HOUSTON BERNARD BAND.  The unprecedented show will feature a set of Elvis concert classics followed by a set of songs associated with other artists—reimagined as if Elvis had survived beyond 1977 and added them to his repertoire. A horn section will also be added to the band for these special shows.

Doug Church
is known throughout the world by his fans and peers as having the closest singing voice to Elvis Presley. He has won the coveted Worldwide Elvis Impersonator Contest in Memphis, Tennessee competing against Elvis entertainers from all over the world and starred in and performed soundtrack vocals for the award winning documentary film “Almost Elvis.” Regarding Elvis Beyond ‘77 Church explains, “I’ve always wondered what it would have been like if Elvis had picked himself up, got off the prescription medications, and allowed those who cared so deeply for him to lend a helping hand in regaining his lust for life… to continue his career beyond 1977. I’m sure many other Elvis fans have wondered the same thing (if for no other reason than to simply have him with us still). My aim is to bring that fantasy to life and to allow Elvis fans to experience that dream, if only for a short time on the stage, to envision what he would have been like had he lived…to hear what music he would have gravitated toward, and see how he would have reinvented himself all over again…”

The Houston Bernard Band performs original, fresh, and hard-hitting country music for fans throughout the Northeast. They have been nominated for a 2015 New England Music Award for “Country Act of the Year,” and were on the ballet for the 2014 GRAMMY Awards. Says Bernard, “Working with Doug Church has been amazing in that, not only is he one of the best Elvis tribute artists I have worked with, but he is one of the best performers overall. The way he commands the stage and is so closely in touch with and responsive to his audience is wonderful to witness. It is a privilege to be working with Doug and the Houston Bernard Band looks forward these shows.”
