Happy Labor Day Weekend 

I would like to take a moment to wish everyone a Happy, Safe and Healthy Labor Day weekend. 

If you don’t already have plans and aren’t too far from the Chicagoland area, take a ride to come a see us perform because we really miss you. I am very excited to be performing with my friend, Cody Ray Slaughter the Ambassadors, the Nashville Dreams and the Chi Town Horns, at a very cool live music venue called the Arcada Theatre in St Charles IL. We had to postpone the shows the last 2 times, so we are more than ready to Rock N Roll. We will be there this Saturday, Sep 4th at 8pm. We hope you can join us. We heard they remodeled and made it into a total entertainment complex! In fact, there are a limited number of good seats still available, but not for long.                                        

Visit: https://www.arcadalive.com/upcomingevents/ today for tickets while they last! 

Then on Sunday, Sept 5th, after postponing last year, we are finally back at the Rock N Rail Festival in Griffith IN I will be performing with the Blackwood Quartet and there will be a few special surprises making guest appearances as well. There are bands there all day and night at this hometown festival that you can bring the entire family to.

Can’t wait to see you there and once again, Happy Labor Day Weekend! 

God Bless, Shawn

A very Special Thank You! 

Hi everyone, I wanted to personally thank you for the full sold out venue on Sunday at the River Seating Casino in St Louis, MO. It's means so much to me, that so many of you came out to see the show and it touched my heart how enthusiastic all of you were. You showed you were there to have fun and enjoy the show and that you love the music of Elvis like I do. Because of flight delays and cancelations I had to re-route and come in day of show and I almost thought I was going to be late for the show, but once I finally got on stage. I really did feel the excitement and love from everyone there. It has been so hard over this last year, not to be able to be on stage doing what I love, but I can tell you, that all of you at the River City Casino in St Louis last night, made it worth the wait. Also, Special thanks to my band and singers who were all flawless and really rockin, as well as the management, staff, sound and lighting guys at the venue. Everyone was just so kind. They just made us feel at home. I can't forget to thank the promoter, my good friend and fellow entertainer Steve McCoy from Real McCoy Entertainment. Love you like a brother!!!! God Bless! Shawn Klush

May Tour for the UK unfortunately had to be postponed 

As unfortunate as it is, we may have to wait a little bit longer to return to touring the UK. The British Government will now require many of the major venues on our May tour to become mass vaccination sites in May and June so therefore the producers have no choice but to postpone the dates. They are working very hard to re-schedule the May Tour dates to early summer or in October/November and will announce the new dates as they become available. Check directly with the venues or Visit http://www.elvistributeartistworldtour.co.uk for all the details. We know we will be back one day soon bigger and better than ever. We miss you but promise to be back one day very soon!

Most of the Summer and Fall shows now POSTPONED 

Our dear friends and fans, 

I hope all of you are safe and healthy. Please know that we are thinking about you during these trying times. We want to let you know that unfortunately, it appears now, that most of the shows between now and June or July will be forced to POSTPONE due to government rules to combat the spread of this COVID-19. We received an email from our UK promoters that our 9 city tour of the UK in May, has been postponed as well, due to their government regulations and travel bans. Since these are all different shows, in different areas and countries, with different promoters, it would be best at this time, for you to visit the websites of each individual show you planned to attend. That way, you will have the official information and will be notified of any new dates, once they confirm them. 

It may take a few weeks or longer to get new dates, to reschedule so many shows. We have been told that all of your tickets will be honored at the future dates that will be chosen soon. As I said, each individual website will have that information as it develops. Please be courteous and give them time to reschedule. 

Remember, this is the best way to keep us all healthy and safe. We all hope and pray that things will subside sooner and we will all be able to resume our lives and shows as they were before these unfortunate circumstances. 

God bless and stay healthy! "This too shall pass" 

Love, 

Shawn, Dan, Marci, Ben, Heitor, Tom, Jim, Ron, Ed, Bill, Donna, Thea and the rest of Team Klush!

Shawn's role on HBO's Vinyl a big hit 

Congratulations to Shawn Klush for the amazing scene as an actor as well as his performance on 'The King and I' episode of HBO's hit new series Vinyl.  

Here is the review in Rolling Stone Magazine 'Vinyl' Recap: Long Live the King 

A killer cameo from Elvis shines — and leaves the rest of the show in the shadows 

It lasted no longer than the A-side of a 45. But for a brief, beautiful period on tonight's Vinyl — titled "The King and I," because of course it is — it looked for all the world like we were about to enter an alternate timeline in which Elvis Presley invented punk rock. 

It's a tremendous scene, easily the best real-life rock-star cameo of the series to date. Much of the credit goes to actor-singer Shawn Klush, a truly uncanny Elvis who's asked both to perform as the King in full Vegas mode and reveal the regrets behind the rhinestone jumpsuit.
