Don Rose returns to the Blackboard Stage @ Trout’s Nightclub - Bakersfield with his world class tribute to ELVIS PRESLEY! Don’t wait, get your tickets now! Call (661) 399-6700 for tickets and information.
Don did a great show at Trout’s, very energetic and very Elvis® . It was karaoke on steroids. Don was a great crowd pleaser and even signed some boobs after his set.
“Don started performing his Elvis® show a few years after Elvis® passed away, sing mainly for his own enjoyment in the basement of his parent's home. He was eventually talked into performing for some friends in the living room, and thus his performance career had begun. He started with tapes through college and progressed to his own band. He has since made his career as an entertainer not only doing Elvis®, but also with his own show group, The Don Rose Revue.
He has performed his Elvis® tribute all across the United States and Canada. He has toured in Germany and Switzerland, and played in showrooms of major Cruise lines. He now makes his home in Las Vegas where he spends about half the year - the other half on the road, playing major Casinos, doing corporate and convention work, along with concerts and one-niters.”

After the ELVISM, The Blackboard Playboys: Don Kidwell, Annie Kidwell, Mark Year, Johnny Barnett & Pat “Banny” Banister were on the Blackboard stage for a great night of music!

The Playboys did some great country tunes and Rockwell made a surprise appearance and rocked the house with a country medley reminiscing Jerry Lee Luis and Elvis with a Dwight edge!

Lloyd Reading came in to enjoy the Blackboard Playboys and was really tuned in when they cut loose on some Bob Wills tunes!
