All Shook Up Las Vegas Show Review
All Shook Up Las Vegas is one of the best Elvis tribute shows playing in the city.
This 75-minute Elvis Presley impersonation event is more than just a tribute concert of the King of Rock and Roll. Produced by David Saxe, All Shook Up is the quintessential Elvis performance that has been named Best Impersonator Show in Las Vegas for 2015.
Tribute artist Travis Allen has all the right moves, mannerism of Elvis and his voice is spot on during this tribute show. He is not a novelty act and is very comparable to Elvis’s height as well as weight throughout the King’s career. Allen is joined on stage by a live piece band that propels the evening forward with precision timing and sound on each cover. Allen is masterful with his iconic Elvis moves during his portrayal of the King of Rock and Roll. Allen sashays across the stage while belting out a perfect rendition of Blue Suede Shoes.
The tribute artist of All Shook Up Las Vegas show is passionate with his cover of Jailhouse Rock, Hound Dog and Allen can really move his hips in tune with the beat while singing All Shook Up. The women in the audience get all choked up during the impersonators crooning of Love Me Tender as well as Heartbreak Hotel. Other fabulous memories of the King of Rock and Roll are played out on stage when the audience is awed by the perfect tone of voice in Suspicious Minds, Burning Love and Hound Dog. Closing the show with a perfect rendition of Blue Hawaii leaves every guest feeling like they are in the South Pacific with Allen handing out scarfs as well as kisses to some of the screaming women in the audience.
Allen goes farther in being the ideal authentic Elvis by wearing costumes that were made for the King by designer Darlene Thompkins of Blue Hawaii fame. There is one costume change during the show where Allen changes from Elvis’s iconic Gold Lame Dinner Jacket that the performer wore during his early years to the sparkling jump suit that only the King of Rock and Roll wore in his later years on stage.
The V Theater is perfect for this tribute performance with intimate seating and a great stage that allows perfect sight views. People in the front row will feel like Elvis is swinging his hips on their lap to the balcony where patrons can take in all the action of the band.
No matter if you an old school fan of Elvis or someone younger in age that might not know much about this historic Las Vegas entertainer, the show fits all of these learning curves. All Shook Up Las Vegas audiences thinking they have seen the King of Rock and Roll and the memories of the past are relived with joy.
