The fan club based was originally formed in 1990 by several area Elvis Presley fans. After an initial membership campaign at a local shopping mall the club founders soon realized that their admiration of Elvis was felt by many others in the area. The growing membership gathered for meetings, dinners, and tribute night with proceeds from these events benefiting local and national charities.
The fan club held concerts and conventions which included a highlight event including Elvis’ original back up vocal group the Jordanaires. The Jordanaires backed up Elvis soundalike ‘Orion’ (Jimmy Ellis) in the evening concert after an earlier press conference with club members and fans.
The club has attended Elvis Week many times in Elvis’ home town of Memphis, TN visiting his home Graceland. The club also had the opportunity to be featured on MSNBC during Elvis Week as the broadcast followed the club in Memphis giving a fan perspective of their experiences as they visited Graceland, Sun Studio, Elvis Birthplace in Tupelo and other Elvis related locations.
