"Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist" Cody Ray Slaughter in Concert
Sep 30, 2017 - Oct 1, 2017
Back by popular demand after the last two years’ five sold-out Colorado concerts, Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Cody Ray Slaughter returns to the Lakewood Cultural Center (470 S. Allison Parkway) for two shows, and possibly a third if tickets sell out. In “The Cody Magic Returns!,” Cody will rock the house the last weekend of September. His uncanny portrayal of Elvis Presley has won him fans worldwide.
Cody returns to Lakewood following his 2015 and 2016 performances and his Denver appearance in the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical The Million Dollar Quartet. He was a featured musical guest on The Late Show with David Letterman, and in 2011 he was named “Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist” by Elvis Presley Enterprises.
Cody’s incredible voice, moves, humor and looks make for an unforgettable performance. He’ll be backed this year by the David Fontana Band, led by the son of Elvis’ first drummer, D.J. Fontana, and together they’ll be adding some new songs to their list of audience favorites. For more information, visit www.codyrayslaughter.com or look up his videos on YouTube.
All proceeds will benefit Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice, which provides skilled and compassionate in-home health care and hospice services to families in the mountain communities of Jefferson, Park, Clear Creek and Gilpin counties. Mount Evans also offers grief support to adults and children, including Camp Comfort, an award-winning children’s bereavement program. The only nonprofit agency of its kind in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, Mount Evans serves more than a thousand people each year, regardless of their ability to pay.
Last year’s concerts sold out very quickly. This year’s are scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 30 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 1 at 3:00 p.m., with a third tentatively planned for Friday, Sept. 29 at 7:30 p.m. if the first two shows sell out. Tickets go on sale May 15 at 10:00 a.m.; they start at $35 and can be purchased at www.Lakewood.org/tickets, 303-987-7845, or in person at the box office. Those holding $75 VIP tickets will be seated in the first three rows of the venue and are invited to meet Cody and the band at a pre-show reception.
