SNFCC: Α Tribute to Elvis Presley
On January 7, the curtain is drawn on this year’s SNFCC Christmas World with a vibrant event marking a hopeful attitude for the new year ahead. At the heart of the SNFCC, the Agora, the King of Rock & Roll comes to life for one night only, and everyone is invited to join in this open party. 

No other pop culture persona has been as timelessly fascinating and as captivatingly charming as Elvis Presley — case in point: there are currently approximately 100,000 official impersonators of him in the US alone.

During his lifetime, Elvis stirred up teenage consciences, overturned social norms and shot down musical conventions. At the same time, he turned himself into a unique embodiment of the American Dream: he was innovative and, at the same time, inordinate in absolutely everything he did. And this is the reason why one generation of music lovers after another keeps on discovering his musical legacy with the same warmth and longing.

SNFCC’s tribute to Elvis Presley brings together musicians from the three most “thoroughbred” Athenian rock & roll bands, D.K. & The Band, Jitterbugs and HiRollers, in a delightful evening covering Elvis’s entire discography, from “That’s All Right” and “Mystery Train” to “Heartbreak Hotel” and “Blue Suede Shoes,” and from “Hound Dog” and “Jailhouse Rock” to “It’s Now Οr Never,” “A Little Less Conversation” and “Suspicious Minds.”
