The 10th annual summer concert series presented by the Coal Country Chamber of Commerce will come to an end this evening, Tuesday, at the Benld Park with an expected 1,000 people in attendance for another shakin’, rattlin’ and rollin’ by Steve Davis.
Officers of the CCCC are expecting nearly a thousand people to pack into Benld Park tonight to revel in the King’s music, which begins at 7 p.m. The annual performance by Davis is the most popular concert year after year for the Chamber.
Davis will appear in full Elvis attire this evening while singing many classic that made Elvis a household name in the 50’s and 60’s. Davis does his “Memories of Elvis” show all across the United States, but as a native to the area, he enjoys the local concerts the most.
According to Mickey Robinson, executive director of the CCCC, Davis’s repertoire stands unmatched as the largest of any Elvis impressionist.
The park will open at 6 p.m. this evening with the concession stand serving hot dogs, big smokies, Italian beef, strawberry shortcake sundaes, and drinks. The concert and parking is free as always, but attendees are encouraged to bring a chair and dancing shoes.
