Raechel Whitchurch

Alt-country singer-songwriter Raechel Whitchurch, a former Central West local, will pay tribute to Elvis’ country side with ‘HILLBILLY ELVIS’. Following a successful debut show in 2018, Raechel decided to make Hillbilly Elvis an annual event with 2020 being her third year running. She’ll also be bringing back her incredible live band, The Bolo Boys, so you won’t find any backing tracks at this show!

Elvis was raised on country, gospel and blues music. He brought all of those influences with him when he stepped into Sun Studio to record his early music. His music had the soul of blues music and the twang of country, and because the termrocknrollwas still in its infancy, Elvismusic was initially labelled as country. Throughout his life, Elvis loved playing, listening to and recording country music, even if his name became synonymous with rocknroll.

This one-of-a-kind event will feature some of Elvis’ biggest hits from the span of his career but every song will be played in a hillbilly country style, to celebrate the genre that was crucial in bringing us the one-of-a-kind, rock ‘n’ roll, Elvis sound that we all know and love!
