All hail the return of Oleg! After a year-long tenure as a clown in a traveling russian circus, founding member Oleg Bernov has rejoined the Red Elvises as their Bailalaika (that giant red instrument above) player and turned "Ivan & The Red Elvises" back into "The Red Elvises."
Coming off a a pair of fantasy fest dates in Key West, The Red Elvises should be primed to deliver the brand of Siberian Surf Rock/rockabilly that they have perfected during their 11-album, 15 year career.
To see The Red Elvises is to love them. Only the most lifeless cynic would deride their joyful noise as lame schtick. Schtick it may be - but lame it most definitely ain't. You will hear songs about bellydancing. You will participate in a conga line. You will throw down shots. You may pass out on the pool table and wake up on the hood of your car. But no matter what, you will have had a good time.
The Monterey Club is at the south east corner of US 1 and State Rd 84, next to gold coast roller rink. Tickets are $15. Doors are at 8pm.
