Rockin' the Ramp is the second annual summer concert and fundraiser at the Kansas Aviation Museum. This year's act features Elvis impersonator Steve Davis and his band. Here are the details:
1) The show, Memories of Elvis, will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday on the ramp at the Kansas Aviation Museum, 3350 S. George Washington Blvd. It will open with the group Rivertown Sound singing doo-wop favorites from the '50s and '60s. They'll also be the backup for Davis' show, which begins at 8 p.m.
2) The museum's 727 airliner will be the backdrop for the stage, and attendees will be sitting under the stars surrounded by a B-52, KC-135, Starship, B-47 and other aircraft. The KC-135 and 727 will also be open until 7:15 p.m.
3) The entire museum will be open for viewing until 7:30 p.m. Beer, wine and food will be sold. Attendees should bring lawn chairs or other portable seating.
Never miss a local story.
4) Museum director Lon Smith says that Davis' act should not be missed. "He is not only a guy who looks a lot like Elvis and does an awesome show, he is also an historian who can replicate virtually any song recorded by Elvis and is familiar with the history of Elvis' life and utilizes this knowledge during his show."
Tickets for the event are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. To purchase tickets, call 316-683-9242.
