Advance tickets are still available for the Ultimate Oldies concert, set for 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 31. The live show will be staged in the Rector Community Center, and offers the perfect kick-off to the Labor Day Weekend. As in years past, a number of regional entertainers and “special guests” will perform.

“Straight to Rector from playing the rooftop at the Peabody in Memphis, is a looking-good-for-his-age-and-condition Elvis Presley,” an event organizer noted. “Don’t miss it. He sings gospel favorites, signature numbers and has been known to sign a few autographs and give out a scarf or two.”

From a sold-out performance at Maywood in Memphis to the soothing, cool air conditioning of the Rector Community Center come The Beach Boys, complete with beachy shirts, shorts, flip-flops, GTOs and California Girls.

While Steve and Edie don’t record any more, the dynamic husband-wife duo of Craig and Donna Rhodes Morris entertain the audience with special love songs. Sometimes, the Ultimate girls become ABBA, performing Dancin’ Queen and a couple of men dressed all in black often bring the house down with their rendetion of Soul Man.

“This is not a concert you will forget. Something new is always on the agenda. Perhaps Sonny and Cher could make an appearance,” to organizer noted.

“Whatever your taste in music, from How Great Thou Art to Stayin’ Alive, your ticket price at $20 for reserved seating--or $15 for general admission is not even close to the ultimate value of the performance you will see,” to organizer added. “These performers and the band, with keyboard specialist Ken Wadley, could be the highlight of your Labor Day Picnic weekend.”

Everyone is reminded to mark their calendars for the Ultimate Oldies Concert, set for 7 p.m. on Aug. 31, at the Rector Community Center. Those wanting to obtain more information, or reserve seats, may call 870 595-3035.
