‘Elvis’ to perform March 2 at annual PHS Honors banquet

Multi-award winning Elvis impersonator Marshall Matthews will perform for the 26th Annual PHS Honors Banquet “Rockin and Rollin to Success” Monday, March 2. While the honorees were born decades after the King’s reign, they will be captivated as this talented entertainer brings one the world’s most famous entertainer back to life.

Matthews frequently performs with his twelve-piece full-concert band, The Memphis Kings, across the nation at festivals, concerts, casinos, private and public events, including large venues. His high-energy performances replicate the true Elvis experience either in a solo performance or with his band.

Matthews’ stage costumes are authentic replicas of the jumpsuits Elvis wore during his 1970’s concert years. Performances are based on actual concerts performed by the legendary singer. Audiences are wowed with the sound, looks and energy matched only by Elvis Presley.

“When we first announced our special entertainer to the students,” said PHS Honors banquet Chair Janette Murray, “it was obvious they were unaware of the magnitude of Elvis Presley’s worldwide popularity. PHS Honors banquet entertainment chair Ron Reed added, “I anticipate a sell-out crowd as word gets out about the caliber of entertainment we have planned. The community at large will jump at this opportunity. With the banquet’s theme of ‘Rockin and Rollins to Success,’ these young people are in for the treat of a lifetime!”

A limited number of the $8 tickets are available through 2 p.m. Friday, February 27th at any Pawhuska school site, from any committee member, Hometown Foods, Tolson Agency, Weigant’s, the lobby of American Heritage Bank and Paula Rabb at First National Bank. Guest Speaker will be Strategy Center Business Development Director Tonya Foreman. Activities kick off at 6:30 p.m. at the Pawhuska Elks Lodge.
