Buddy Holly and Elvis, Aug. 11, 2002


Here are some pictures and videos from the performance by George Trullinger and Harry Shahoian, aka Buddy Holly and Elvis, respectively.  Harry being a hometown boy and all, I've created an Elvis page where you can view pics and video from any performance of his that I have covered or cover in the future.  You can reach that by clicking on the "Elvis" link near the top of most of these pages.
