One Night With The King

Elvis Presley – he was one of the most captivating and entertaining spirits to ever grace the music industry. Adored and loved by many, Elvis still continues to leave a lasting impact on fans around the world. At Lady Luck Casino® Marquette, we think he’s pretty awesome too! In fact, we’ve decided to pay tribute to the King, for one night only, on September 10, 2015.

What to Expect

Trying to live up to the King’s greatness is a tall order, but we’ve definitely got you covered. The event will be hosted by emcee, Ronny Craig. He’s a diehard Elvis fan who’s hosted many Elvis tributes. You’ll also be wowed by our three exciting impersonators. And if that wasn’t enough, The Ultimate Legends Show Band will be in the house. For those who aren’t familiar, the Ultimate Legends Show Band is highly regarded as one of the most talented tribute bands in the Midwest. Their goal is to rock out, have fun and please the audience. So you know you’ll be in for a good time when they arrive!

We’re Not Done!

The fun doesn’t just begin and end with Elvis. Since you have to go to The Buffet® to purchase your tickets, you might as well enjoy a delicious meal while you’re at it! Our buffet offers a variety of delicious market fresh items, which range from original recipes to the home-style favorites that our customers enjoy. Stop by for an affordable lunch or dinner!

Fun Facts

We really want to get you excited about this event, so we’ve included some fun facts about the King that you may not know (okay, if you’re a fan, you may know). But why don’t you indulge us and play along.

Elvis bought Graceland at the tender age of 22. He dished out $102,500 for the home in 1957 and would stay there for two decades.

Elvis entered the army after he became famous. Although he was a major movie star, Elvis was drafted into the army in 1957. While on duty, he met his wife, Priscilla. Elvis was eventually honorably discharged from active duty in 1960.

Although it’s estimated that 40 percent of his music sales came from outside the United States, with the exception of Canada, Elvis never performed internationally. According to rumor, his manager, Colonel Parker, purposely turned down lucrative international gigs for Elvis because Parker was an immigrant and fearful that he wouldn’t be allowed back into the U.S. if he were to leave the country.

Elvis’ favorite sandwich was honey, banana, bacon and peanut butter. Hmm, that’s a sandwich we just have to try! We wonder what he’d think about The Buffet if he were alive today.

Elvis is so talented that he’s even got an album of nothing but banter. No, really… it’s true! He has an album of nothing but stage banter, from in-between his concert music sets. The truth is, he needed to fulfill an album obligation in 1974, so we guess that was it.

Our One Night With Elvis is certainly an event you don’t want to miss. Stop by The Buffet today to purchase your tickets. In the meantime, be sure to like our Facebook® page to stay up to date on other casino fun. We look forward to seeing you at the King’s celebration!
