For the third year, the Cullman Civic Center will explode in rock 'n' roll when two top-notch Elvis Presley impersonators combine their talents on the same stage.

David Lee of Birmingham and Michael Dean of Decatur, who have kept the spirit of Elvis alive for devoted fans for the past decade, appear April 29 at 8 p.m. Doors open one hour before the show.

Tickets are $15 and may be ordered by phoning (256) 565-4697, (205) 266-3030 or by e-mailing They are also available at the civic center.

Memphis, featuring Doug Moss, Gayle Root and Amy Roper, will accompany Dean and Blue Suede, an Elvis tribute band, will play. Blue Suede, of Huntsville, once backed former impersonator Mitchell Brown.

"David and Michael wanted to do a show together and it seemed natural to have it in Cullman, about halfway for both of them," Root said. "David's fans could travel down and Michael's fans drive up. We're all looking forward to another great time."

Lee takes his Elvis act throughout the United States and Canada. He is the 2004 world champion of "International Images of the King," a contest each August in Memphis. Lee also is the Canadian grand champion.

Dean, who has performed with the legendary Stamps Quartet, who once backed Elvis on his recordings and in concerts, is a three-time world finalist.
