Red Elvises at The Bethlehem Musikfest

If you follow me on Facebook, you’d know I spent Thursday evening at the Bethlehem Musikfest, in the pouring rain, just so I could catch The Red Elvises. They were awesome! It seems that Igor and Oleg have reunited! (At least kinda, we asked both Oleg and Igor after the concert if they were back together and both said, “I don’t know.”) And Milka Ramos and Elena Shemankova were also back! I LOVE LOVE LOVE MILKA! She wore a Suzi Quatro -inspired black leather jumpsuit! She is incredible!

Here, watch the video I shot:

And here’s the video Pookie shot…

Clearly it’s time to invest in a better camera for me.

Speaking of which, here’s a blurry shot of Igor and me:

    There’s is definitely a similarity but the Red Elvises do add their own flavor to it. Heck, I’d even say there’s quite a bit of Link Ray in the Red Elvises music as well!

    Hearing aid? Did I hear you right? You were right….this time…the volume was muted, my hearing aid was functioning properly. I remember when you were a sweet girl but then at my age that too shall pass.

    Actually, “Surfing in Siberia” IS The King of Surf Guitar’s “Misirlou”, a song which goes way back to 1927. Dick Dale’s version is the famous American version, and the Red Elvises also do a great job on this
    song of Greek origin…

    And of course it’s used as the theme music from the movie “Pulp Fiction”.

    Hi Donna, I enjoyed your video and enthusiasm for Red Elvises. Glad you had a good time seeing them!

In the meantime, feel free to visit the fanzine site and you can see tons of photos and articles about them.
