On Monday and Thursday nights, John Beardsley channels Elvis Presley at the Troubador Theatre.
His show, "A Tribute to the King Through the Years," starts with some of the pioneering rocker's earliest works from 1953 and finishes in 1977, the year of Presley's death. Beardsley performs 30 songs in all and manages five costume changes during the evening. Strings attached.
