Ask Joe Guercio! and the Belgian fanclub Elvismatters offer visitors of this site the unique opportunity to ask Elvis's conductor Joe Guercio the questions they wanted to ask for so long. Probably nobody in the world understood the live music of Elvis better than Joe Guercio. He gave the King exactly what he wanted to hear: a rocking, powerful show with a superb classical touch. In May, on the 15th and 16th, Joe Guercio will once again conduct an Elvis show. Lead vocalist is Jenson Bloomer, who will be backed by a rhythm section and a seventy-five (75!) piece orchestra. Before the show, Joe Guercio will answer questions on stage - and after the show, he's on hand to give autographs or pose for pictures. If you have a question for Joe, please send it in, and hear Joe answer it in Mol, Belgium.

Elvis sang what people wanted to hear, whether he was bored with certain songs or not. Remember he said, "We have to excite the crowd. This is the first time for many of them." He even asked the audience in some shows for what they wanted to hear and then sang a short version, which of course did not compare to the recorded version. My husband saw Elvis in Vegas and was actually disappointed with the concert for exactly that reason.not enough of the standard hits. he did that medley, which was not enough for my hubby. He didn't recognize any of the songs that you and I know and love because we had the albums from the early 70's, but he hadn't heard those songs, so he was not impressed. Sure wish I had had his ticket!

I'd like to ask Joe if he has any inkling as to why Elvis didn't vary the content of his show very often throughout the years. With his deep, rich and varied musical catalogue, it always surprised me that Elvis ignored so many of his own hits -- from all three decades of his career, the '50s, '60s and '70s -- in favor of cover versions (many of them very good and welcome, don't get me wrong) and all-too-brief, speeded-up rehashes of the "Hound Dog"/"All Shook Up" era (with which he often seemed very bored). Thanks!

Thank you and Elvismatters for this fantastic service. And thanks to Joe Guercio for giving his time to answer questions from Elvis fans. Sadly I can't think of any question :)
