Need a unique way to show mom how much you love her this Mother's Day? Don't settle for flowers or spring for another silly card she won't remember. Instead, why not give Elvis a call...
Local tribute artist Jeff Collins (aka King Shazaam) is once again playing up his services to folks around the Grand Strand with a special holiday offer.
Collins, who has performed around town for a number of years in the King Shazaam Tribute Show, will offer a Elvis Tribute Singing Telegram for your Mom this Mother’s Day.
Local fans can choose Mom’s favorite Elvis songs to be delivered by Collins — in character, of course — to her home, retirement center, restaurant or business on Sunday, May 12.
The appearances, regularly $75 will start at $50 each for the holiday and include King Shazaam showing up in jumpsuit costuming with his own portable sound equipment and performing a trio of "authentic sounding" Elvis songs with scarves and photos available as well.
"It's always fun," writes Collins. "The family can get together on this and watch Mom's face as we build a new happy memory."
Collins and his wife, Anne, also run the Myrtle Beach chapter of the Elvis fan club which hosts month gatherings of tribute artists around the area. The couple have offered a similar "Elvis gram" deal in the past for Valentine's Day (read full story here).
