Who was the real king of rock ‘n’ roll? Elvis ‘the pelvis’, or ‘the killer’ Jerry Lee Lewis? That’s what Hiam Sports & Social Club will be deciding as they host a special cabaret event this Halloween.

The event, which is titled, The Showdown – Elvis vs Jerry Lee Lewis, will feature Dave B as Elvis and Peter Gill as Jerry.

Each act will be supported by the Buddy Presley Band featuring Corrado di Ianni on lead guitar, Neale Hobday on double bass, Gary Richardson on drums and Chris Davies on keyboards.

The high energy show will see both acts going head to head before those in the audience will get the chance to decide a winner.

Mike Fortey, one of the event organisers, said: “This will be a Cabaret style event, (tablecloths and candles), with The Professor DJing on the decks between sets and the large dance floor available to be filled up throughout the evening.
