Dean Vegas spectacular

Now it’s night time and it’s the right time for the The Seventies Show starring … DEAN VEGAS!! Who you might remember was the first ever Elvis I kissed, EVER.

Anyways, on with the show. I thought it was great.

Schmaltzy, cheesy, idolatry, reverent glamorous and mildly spectacular. There were showgirls after-all, Deans’ own showgirls. And NOT the only showgirls in town cos there are the supertastic Broadway Showgirls too who were used by every Elvis Tribute Artist in Parkes over the weekend.

Mr Vegas would slip from the peculiar Elvis-lite accent many of the ETAs use into his regular Aussie voice. But as I have said before, don’t the girls love him? And I do too…

The show got under way with a bang, showgirls and a red jumpsuit

Before we knew it it was half time, so I went downstairs to use the facilities…

Not sure why this sign needed elaboration, but just so we are clear THIS IS THE FEMALE AND THE LADIES TOILET!!

And I also popped into to see what entertainment was on offer in the cocktail lounge. It was none other than this fellow…

Back upstairs for the second half of the show. By now Dean had whipped the crowd into a frenzy with moves like this …

White jump suit, Elvis moves, sex on legs

Let me just reiterate this point… the ladies love Dean…

And I love Dean. He set off the whole chain reaction of kissing Elvii and it all started here…

Dean cocks an ear as the crowd screams "WE LOVE YOU!!!"

Phew.  So exhausted were we after the incredible entertainment that P.Nelvis and I decided to head back to Tent City around 10.30pm for an early night.

Bad idea. Even though I swallowed a mouthful of valium, by 3am I am screaming SHUT UP, SHUT UP!! (yes twice like a mad lady) at my Tent City neighbours.

Through the night there were waves of people coming back to their tents, the flip flop of thongs wandering to and from the toilet, the chattering as people bedded down, every fart, a symphony of snoring.

      You have heard me karaoke, so somehow I don’ think I have quite the voice to do an entire show.
      I can pose though…

    Dear Jamvis
    So many happy memories, cant WAIT for the (spoiler alert) Sat night Silas show recap.

    I do have to dispute one error of fact – these showgirls werent The Broadway Showgirls that appeared at every other envelope opening in Parkes 2011. Frankly Dean’s two didnt have the same pizzaz as the BS gals (ooh that GI Blues shimmy). I put the error down to your simpleton-like behaviour in the face of big DV’s hot lips.

    • Year of Denim says:

      All showgirls look the same to me.
      And yes I was hypnotised by big DV’s hot lips, hair, legs, Elvis moves etc.

    • Parkes Broadway Showgirls says:

      Thanks P.NElvis you are right we didn’t dance at The Dean Vegas Concert although we did dance with him in the park while the elvis record attempt was happening so you are correct when you say we danced with all the ETA’s in Parkes lol. Also Thanks for the vote of confidence we love the GI Blues dance too. We had a very busy but amazing weekend resulting in us being asked to dance on The King Tribute Cruise in November. Hope you can Join us.

        Actual Broadway Showgirls commenting on this blog!!!
        I am overwhelmed with excitement.
        You girls were awesome.
        Thanks for bringing some sass to Parkes!

    I reckon the female ladies toilet thing was put there by someone a little bit like me (read: cranky pedant). I always find it vaguely annoying when toilets say “female toilet”. It sounds as if it is being ascribed a gender, as in female duck, female echidna etc. For some reason, this annoyance particularly strikes me at the toilets at Central station. Anyhoo, hooray for womens/ladies/anything but female toilets.

  8. […] what a tribute it was! He took on young Elvis faithfully, with no cheese ala Dean Vegas. His performance was incredibly sincere and but not too hung up on doing Elvis vocalisations, which […]
