Clayton Center presents: Travis LeDoyt | Concert

Clayton Center for the Arts, Ronald and Lynda Nutt Theatre

Travis LeDoyt has been called “the best young Elvis in the world,” and there are four good reasons why; 1) he looks like Elvis; 2) he sings like Elvis; 3) he moves like Elvis; and 4) his personality and mannerisms both on and off stage are strikingly similar to Elvis. Travis flawlessly captures the essence of Elvis in his prime, and restricts his shows to the hits and ambience of 1954-1959. Utilizing an authentic three-piece band featuring guitar, bass, and drums, Travis takes his audience back to a genuine 1950s concert.  For those who missed an Elvis concert during those years, it is a chance to relive the excitement and aura of Elvis and the 50s. Tickets can be purchased at the Clayton Center Box Office at 865.981.8590. More info
