Elvis was not a singer-songwriter. He interpreted the songs of other writers in a distinctive style that became the Elvis brand. But the long-term success of his career depended upon great songs. We’ll explore the early rhythm and blues performers that inspired Elvis plus celebrate some of the best songs and songwriters in the business including the incomparable Lieber and Stoller. All interpreted by the Forum’s incredibly talented female performers who will bring a fresh, new approach to the songs. Did we mention there will be lots of dance, too?
