Photo Gallery | Elvis Royale at Variety Playhouse

Elvis Royale is a multi-media concert consisting of live music, dance routines, light show and video that celebrates the music of Elvis Presley with a mix of old school rock ‘n soul plus a little bit of gospel along with some contemporary rock/pop mash-ups.

Big Mike is the high-energy band leader who fronts the 13-piece Kingsized Rock ‘n Roll Orchestra as they cover tunes from every point in Elvis’ career: rockabilly, gospel, campy movie sound tracks, and all the epic pop classics like “Kentucky Rain”, “In the Ghetto” and “Suspicious Minds” that made Elvis so loved around the world. The spectacle grows as the Dames Aflame Showgirls flank Big Mike in lavish costumes and audience members dressed like Elvis parade the stage in the "Cavalcade of Elvis" during the finale.

Geier has been producing his Elvis revue for 16 years and each time the production is more spectacular. The tribute began in 1996 at the Atlanta’s Star Community Bar, a natural starting place for such a memorial, since it houses the Elvis Vault (a shrine wherein you can play a tune on the Elvis jukebox as you kneel and worship the magic of Elvis). The show continued to expand and moved to the Echo lounge. In 2005, it began its current residence at the Variety Playhouse where it has become a highly-anticipated event and continues to sell out twice a year (celebrating Elvis’ birthday in January and commemorating his death in August).
