Pied Piper of Cleveland 50th Anniversary
6 March 2013 | by ws_tcb_tributeSee all my reviews

My band and I Had the privilege of bringing the Spirit of Elvis back to Brooklyn High for the 50th Anniversary of this historic event. We shared the stage with The Four Lads, Priscilla Wright and Bill Haley's Original Comets. What a thrill it was to be eating breakfast the next morning with members of the Comets and have one tell me "Look, you're on the news". There I was with true Legends of Rock & Roll and I was the one on the news cast. Walt Sanders & The Cadillac Band have been performing all over since 1994. With a sincere attitude, this is not your typical 'impersonation' this is a true Tribute to Elvis Presley. Please have a look for yourself. Make sure to visit our guest book.
