Community Calendar June 21-27, 2018

Mesquite Gaming hosts the 2018 Elvis Rocks Mesquite (ERM) Competition, and participants are bringing their A-game for an experienced Las Vegas judging panel.

The master of all impersonators, celebrity judge Mr. Rich Little, will lead the panel to find the top entertainer that truly embodies Elvis. Little will be accompanied by Steve Beyer, Vegas’ top talent agent; and Genevieve Dew, a veteran Vegas entertainment and singer.

Host, Kelly Clinton Holmes, will keep the energy high throughout the contest and afterhours events like movies by the pool and a late-night karaoke party with DJ Jimmy Z will keep the fun going all weekend long.

This year, 22 Elvis tribute artists from Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and even Oklahoma will compete in three preliminary rounds: the ‘50s ‘60s and ‘70s, in hopes of moving on to the final round for the title and $10,000 in prize money. The three-day event, which runs from Thursday, June 21 through Saturday, June 23, will be filled with entertaining tributes, slick hair, hip-thrusting action and memorable music performed by some of the greatest Elvis performers out there.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at casablancaresort.com or by calling 800-585-3737.

All ages shows require tickets for each person ages 3 and older. Anyone under 3 years or younger must sit in lap of adult.

It is recommended to not bring infants to the shows. Strollers and baby carriers are not permitted inside the Showroom.
