Elvis lovers from age 5-94 are set to hop on the Mystery Train for the annual Night of 100 Elvises next week at the Lithuanian Hall. The many Kings can take their burning love beyond the Hall this year, as the event is branching out to another pair of nearby sights.
Especially amid Christmas parties, this event sounds like we’ve died and gone to Graceland. The Dec. 5 fundraiser for the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, the Baltimore chapter of the Guardian Angels, and Hungry for Music features 30 acts performing Elvis material on three floors. For eight hours. In the Main Ballroom, no Presley classic is repeated. Outside, there’s an ice sculpture offering to the King.
But perhaps the highlight is a crowd filled with Elvis don’t-call-them-impersonators “tribute artists.” A pair of five-year-old twins from Arbutus are expected to be the youngest fans, while a 94-year-old woman from Brooklyn named Mannie is the oldest, organizers say.
This year’s festivities also feature a two-night Elvis-a-thon at the Holiday Inn-Inner Harbor, which is a couple of blocks from the Lithuanian Hall.
Ticket info is available at the event’s website.
