Danny Kane and Ernst Mikael Jorgensen are currently doing research for a book and CD project about the first 18 months of Elvis Presley's career - from July 1954 through December 1955.
The researchers must verify show dates, find photos and collect anecdotes from the many shows the young Elvis did in school gyms, beer joints, dance halls, drive-ins and football fields in Louisiana before becoming famous and signing with RCA.
The duo would love to hear from anyone seeing Elvis during this period, especially if it was in Bastrop on Feb. 24, 1955 at South Side Elementary School or West Monroe Feb. 18, 1955 at West Monroe High School.
The researchers also want to know if he was at any other venue during this 1954-55 time period. Rare Elvis Presley CDs will be awarded to the best submittals.
Danny Kane is a musician and researcher from Louisiana and Ernst Mikael Jorgensen is a researcher and producer for Elvis Presley's record company RCA/BMG.
Anyone having information or photos can call Dan at 225-776-2011 e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
