James Armstrong Theatre [Torrance Cultural Arts Center] 3330 Civic Center Drive
Elvis himself would have done a double take if he had seen Travis LeDoyt’s appearance as the King. There is simply no way to describe LeDoyt’s performance except “unbelievable.” Flawlessly capturing the essence of Elvis in his prime, LeDoyt restricts his shows to the hits and ambience of 1954 – 1960. Utilizing an authentic three-piece Nashville band featuring bass, guitar, and drums, LeDoyt takes his audience back to a genuine 1950s concert. For those who missed an Elvis concert then, this is a chance to feel what it would be like to experience the King live.

Listening to Joel’s keyboard virtuosity combined with his warm and inviting vocal style (often compared to Al Jarreau and Bobby McFerrin) is like tasting gumbo for the very first time. There are so many delicious flavors happening all at once! It is like a quarter cup of World music, blended with a pinch of Rock, and a dash of Pop, all held together with the main seasoning of Contemporary Jazz!
