PUEBLO, Colo. - June 12, 2019 - PRLog -- Two rock n' roll legends will face off in a musical showdown on August 14 at the Pueblo Memorial Hall.   It is Liverpool versus Memphis. It is the rock band standard versus the first wave of rock music. It's Liverpool vs. Memphis, the rock standard vs. the rock n' roll pioneer as the iconic music catalogs of The Beatles and Elvis will go head-to-head in hopes of determining once and for all who claims the title of 'greatest of all time.' The songs from The Beatles and Elvis speak for themselves, and they are forever embedded in our psyche.

There is no denying that the King and the Fab Four helped shape the early years of rock n' roll. Beatles vs. Elvis - A Musical Showdown gives fans a chance to have their voices heard for this rock n' roll battle.

Formed a decade ago, Abbey Road has quickly established themselves as a premier Beatles tribute band. The quartet consist of Nate Bott (John), Chris Paul Overall (Paul), Zak Schaffer (George), and Axel Clarke as Ringo. Complete with vintage instruments, tailored costumes, and tight harmonies Abbey Road totally embody the Fab Four making certain to use British accents and humorous quotes Lennon was known to interject between numbers, and "McCartney" (Overall) playing guitar left-handed.

Los Angeles native Scot Bruce has an uncanny resemblance to a young Elvis Presley, and is ideal to representing The King during his 1950's and 60's heyday. Bruce brings three of the most important elements to an Elvis tribute show: a dynamic voice, the ability to rock the guitar, and most importantly the 'Elvis Pelvis', aka Elvis' signature hip-shaking action. With Travis Daggert on electric guitar, Russell Scott on upright bass and Shawn Nourse on drums, the showdown recalls Elvis' early days recording at Sun Records. During the two-hour show,the bands perform three sets each, trading places in quick set changes and ending the night with an all-out encore involving both bands. There's a lot of good-natured jabbing between the bands as well. The Pueblo show is part of a 125 city tour of the U.S., Australia and Canada.

"With more than a 100 hit songs between Elvis and The Beatles it's hard to showcase them all, but I think our show does a nice job of covering their beginning years right up to 1970," said Bruce.

Elvis may be The King, but it's clear The Beatles are rock n' roll royalty. They have more in common than people reallze: both energized younger fans and helped create the genre we now call "rock n' roll," both were introduced to America on The Ed Sullivan Show. While The Beatles were clearly influenced by Elvis, it's obvious both bands were further impacted by country, R&B, and the early pioneers of rock n' roll. Their music will live on for eternity. Fans can compare two of the greatest musical catalogues side by side at the August 15 at the Pueblo Memorial Hall.

"It's just a fun time and a cool back-and-forth nonstop show," Overall said.
