Who was Elvis Presley? The Heartthrob? The Scandalous “Elvis the Pelvis”? The Movie Star? Or… a consummate musician who synthesized all the streams of American Music to create a sound unlike any other. At a special Library program, the Nina Et Cetera band will explore Elvis’s roots and branches in the Blues, Gospel, Country, Rock and Roll and the genre he defined, Rockabilly
