There have been thousands of Elvis Presley impersonators but never one like this. The show is based on the idea that The King did not die on Aug. 16, 1977, but instead was very much alive and well in 1985 still doing his amazing show but in a different way than the traditional Elvis show of the 1970s. Experience Alive 85 at Jazzbones on Aug. 25 at 5 p.m. Cover charge is $15.
