Belinda Dolphin, Junaid Cassimjee & Lorraine McVean collaborate in Elvis Has Left the Building at Rhumbelow Theatre. “This is a festive trip down the memory lane of rock 'n roll, gospel, blues, country, pop, ballads and love songs,” promises Roland Stansell of the Rhumbelow. “The songs are about vitality, rebelliousness, good humour, but above all, romance and love ... some old, some new, others blue… they’ll tug at your heartstrings… some will tap their feet, others will snap their fingers, and some will sway back & forth ... but the trio invites you to do like Elvis, and do all three together!

“From the heart wrenching Pui Che Puoi and I Belong To You to the fun Valerie and Gone Gone Gone, the show promises to get audiences tapping, snapping, swaying, all in unison. The talented trio performs hits from the 60’s such as Unforgettable through to contemporary music, and the show is sure to appeal to all ages.”

Also appearing are dancers, Keandre Brahim and Nicole Dolphin as well as a smooth saxophonist, Kerwin Robert.

Shows take place on February 12 to 14 and again from February 19 to 21 with performances at 20h00 on Friday and Saturdays (18h30 on Sundays). The venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner.
