Bio

After many evenings and winter nights spent practicing Hound Dog, Jail House Rock, It’s Now or Never, Suspicious Minds, and more, the group and I were still just a “group”, not a “band” yet. We hadn’t yet attained the sound that we could be satisfied with. After months of rehearsals and getting to know and trust each other as musicians, Rylen on bass guitar, Ty on lead guitar, Michael on keyboard, Christian on drums and myself as Elvis, we ventured out of the UW HUB Resource Center and played our first show at a local eatery, El Quetzal Mexican Restaurant on Seattle’s Beacon Hill. As fate would have it, who knew that great Mexican street food and some down home Rock’n Roll would turn out to be a fantastic match. 
The band was dubbed GracelandManila (one word) because the original name, “Tribute to the king by Tony C” was too boring as told by the young rock’n rollers of the band. GracelandManila does have a ring to it.  As time went on, GracelandManila grew from a Elvis tribute garage band to a fully-fledged Las Vegas Elvis Presley powerhouse. GracelandManila has played at venues such as the Bite of Seattle, the Taste of Tacoma, the University District Street Fair, the Queen Anne Days Festival, the University of Washington Night Market, and many more! GracelandManila continues to create its own Elvis vibe.
