Ard­more crowd gets all shook up

Bray People - - News -

ELVIS TOOK CARE of busi­ness with a bang at The Ard­more last week with a spec­tac­u­lar show, putting a twist in the steps of every­one in the Main Street pub.

You’ve got to hand it to vet­eran Pres­ley im­per­son­ator Greg Traynor, he puts his very heart and soul in to his per­for­mance.

But then, the only way for a man squeezed in to a snug white jump-suit in the cor­ner of the Ard­more to get through it is to get stuck in, and play it like it’s ‘Ve­gas’.

And so he did. Greg didn’t break char­ac­ter for a mo­ment as he worked his cap­tive au­di­ence into some­thing of a frenzy.

The ladies fre­quent­ing that par­tic­u­lar es­tab­lish­ment, some aged ‘18’, some closer to 80, couldn’t get enough of their very own Elvis with Traynor him­self insin­u­at­ing that one or two of them had at­tempted some phys­i­cal con­tact of a rather per­sonal na­ture!

As well as some clas­sic Elvis Pres­ley hits, Traynor in­cluded his own Christ­mas song ‘Santa & The King,’ in his set, and a mov­ing ren­di­tion of ‘Song for Joe,’ in mem­ory of his friend Joe Dolan.

There were some Joe clas­sics in the set also, as well as a se­lec­tion from the show­bands era, Tom Jones, the ‘60s and more.
