Karl Memphis and the Jailhouse Rockers are a good old fashioned 4 piece rock ‘n’ roll band. Although versatile and smattered with a mix of modern and classic rock and pop hits, the band mainly focuses and dedicates it’s time to the late, great Elvis Presley.
The band consists of Karl Memphis (Edwards) on vocals as Elvis, Neil Walker on bass/backing vocals, Alex Young on lead guitar/backing vocals and Rob Van Ommeren on drums. All band members have an extensive history of live performances and have played a variety of music styles, even though all members are 25 or under.
As stated above, The Jailhouse Rockers love to perform songs by the King of rock ‘n’ roll, Elvis Presley. The band covers all 3 era’s of Elvis, from the birth of rock ‘n’ roll in the 1950’s, to the comeback in the 60’s and finally the Vegas years in the 1970’s. This is accompanied by full band costume changes and musical adjustments.
The band always aims to create the fine balance between the authentic Elvis sound, both vocally and musically, and bringing it through to the modern age, making it more accessible to a wider audience. To give you an idea; take a famous Elvis recording, and rock it up 10%. All in all this always ends in the same way....people dancing their shoes off! Although the sound is very important, the performance is equally, especially for Karl, who prides himself on giving every last bit of energy into his performances. Whether it be out in the crowd with the gals (and guys) or ripping up the stage, Karl always puts a show on to remember.
As well as the full Elvis performance, The Jailhouse Rockers offer something completely unique to any other act you have seen before. Elvis is unfortunately dead but if he wasn't and was still going strong, then I wonder what covers Elvis would compose and perform? Well Karl and the band have thought about this and as a result learnt a range of popular songs from the last 4 decades.......however, with a twist! Make sure you listen carefully and see if you can spot the cover. All our songs are done with the spirit of Elvis Presley, that includes Robbie Williams or Rhianna. Intrigued?
