Calling Elvis: A musical tribute to The King A dazzling show based on the musical life of "The King" Elvis Presley. The production of "The Memphis Experience" highlights the musical life of the man who personally changed the entire music industry. A man whose influence is still noticeable in all contemporary music and scored more number one hits than any other artist.

In short, "the Memphis Experience" stands for a musical show, stripped of all exuberance and pompous clothing. With us it's all about the experience of the music and songs that are performed with integrity by Maarten Jansen and the six-piece accompanying band.

RECENSION:
Handsome, sincere interpretation of The King

EMMELOORD - For a packed auditorium, The Memphis Experience brought the music and person of the legendary Presley to life with integrity, accompanied by photographic and film footage. Lead singer Maarten Jansen, as an Elvis imitator especially popular in Denmark and Sweden, looks a bit more stocky physically than his idol and, thank God, does not adorn himself with glitter suit and quiff. But with his deep brown voice he gives his admiration musical form. Close your eyes and the average listener will hear Elvis. That's allright, Mama' and 'Heartbreak Hotel' open the evening, followed by 'Love me tender'. The early rockabilly-style lives up skilfully by the rockabilly-microphone, the double 'slapping' on the double bass by Patrick Roes (who has his instrument made pirouettes now and then) and the beautiful fingerpicking of guitarist Ronald Bekking. The background choir by Masha Bijlsma and Saskia van Bokhoven enriches the whole. Whether it's pure rock, R&B or a smartlap, the band knows what to do with it. The many evergreens like 'One night with you', 'Jailhouse Rock' and 'Are you lonesome tonight' go in like cake and cookies. Viva Las Vegas' leads the break. The grand piano is exchanged for keyboards, the double bass for bass guitar, the lead guitar for solo guitar and in Vegas setting, with more glitter and light effects, the musical journey continues. Also covers like 'Polk Salad Annie' and 'You've lost that loving feeling' come into their own. Sometimes the rhythm is accelerated. The ladies duo harmoniously solemnises in 'Sweet Inspiration'. After three encores, including 'Satisfy me', the audience, meanwhile wildly enthusiastic, can enjoy hits from the fifties and sixties, performed by the Blue Moon Boys and De Goldies, long after midnight in the theatre and the Grandcafé.
