Saturday Night Concert! This year we are again pleased to present our special Saturday Concert.

On Saturday night, James Cawley, the man who created the Studios and the Trekonderoga convention, will be doing his top-rated professional Elvis impersonation music review with his band, The American Longboards. This year’s special guest is Louis Velez as Sammy Davis Junior. This event is open to the public, and tickets will go on sale SOON! Check back here often.

James Cawley has been ranked the Number 1 Elvis impersonator in the USA by a committee of Elvis fan club presidents out of 2500 contestants. His amazing resemblance to “The King” in appearance, mannerisms, and voice have also earned finalist status in the Worldwide Elvis impersonator contest. His show allows the audience the chance to relive the excitement of having seen “The King” in person.

Over the past 22 years, James’ shows have ranged from full-blown Las Vegas style shows with 15 musicians, female dancers and The Jordanaires (Elvis’ original backup quartet) to mid-sized shows with the “TCB Band” tailor-made for small venues. He has appeared at sold out shows in theaters and casinos across the country at such places as: Tropicana Casino, Atlantic City; Claridge Casino, Atlantic City; Legends in Concert, Las Vegas; Gatlin Brother’s Theater, Myrtle Beach; and many, many, others.
