See History through Elvis’s Eyes At the Ocean County Library Brick Branch

October 28, 2021

BRICK TOWNSHIP – Revisit a pivotal time for America and its prized musical icon during “Elvistory - The King Returns to Camelot: 1960-1963,” 2 PM Saturday, November 13 at the Ocean County Library Brick Branch.

Award-winning “Elvis-torian” Ruben Castillo’s musical history lesson will relate key world events at the height of the Cold War, showing how they influenced Elvis and his music, and how they shape our lives today.

The program describes the rocker’s evolving music career and Hollywood stardom in films such as GI Blues, Blue Hawaii and Fun in Acapulco, while the US-USSR ideological clash raged in the world and in outer space.

Castillo, a Grand Champion in the “Reflections of the King” Elvis Tribute contest, musical theater actor, and former teacher, will mix his historical narrative with vocalizations of Presley hits in the King’s unique style.

Registration at www.theoceancountylibrary.org/events is required for this free program.
