Ardmore crowd gets all shook up
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.
