Popular Elvis Christmas songs will be performed by Brian Lee Dunning at 6:30pm and again around 8:30pm. Brian has been entertaining rockabilly fans for practically his entire life. Raised on his grandparents’ Bob Wills 78s and his parents Elvis records, Brian’s love of American music and style carved him into one of the most energetic and dynamic rock and roll front men in the business. Brian has also toured the nation with the renowned Johnny Cash tribute show “He wears black”. He has shared the stage with such legends as Jerry Lee Lewis, Wanda Jackson, Big Al Downing, Chuck Berry, and Sonny Burgess. A seamless Elvis tribute artist, Brian has portrayed the King at fantasy themed events,sang on the soundtrack for a New York theme park’s Elvis themed show, and was one of only 35 entertainers chosen to perform at the Elvis tribute contest held in the king’s hometown of Tupelo, Mississippi. Brian’s powerful singing voice evokes a style similar to the early recordings of the legendary Johhny Burnette.
