Harry Shahoian, aka Elvis (click photo to enlarge)


Local boy Harry Shahoian grew up to be Elvis.  He does Elvis so well that he has worked at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, in the Legends of Rock and Roll Show, at the Orleans, and other locations in Las Vegas.  This page has links to photos and video of Harry performing in town.  Some years, he's performed at the Concert in the Park, and brought a band with him that included George Trullinger, who performs as Buddy Holly and produced the Legends show, more recently he's appeared with Frankie Moreno and band. 


For the last several years, the Elvis Concert in the Park has been sponsored by Sierra Madre Rotary Club.
