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" 


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.
