Igor & Red Elvises will perform its blend of Russian folk music, ‘50s rockabilly/surf and reggae at 3 p.m. on May 28 in Palmyra Village Park, 144 E. Main St.
The all-ages concert is presented by the village of Palmyra Celebrations Committee and Historic Palmyra’s Pirates of the Erie Canal. It ends a day of public events for Memorial Day.
The day starts with the Palmyra Memorial Day Parade at 9 a.m. on Main Street. A remembrance ceremony follows in Village Cemetery on Vienna Street.
Residents can bring a picnic to the show. Hot dogs, burgers, drinks and snacks will be available for purchase from Wayne County 4-H Teen Exchange.
Organizers encourage attendees to donate a nonperishable food item to Palmyra Food Pantry. Collection boxes and volunteers will accept contributions before and during the event.
Igor & Red Elvises made its Palmyra debut in October 2010. Band leader Igor Yuzov dreamed in 1995 that Elvis Presley told him to start playing rock ‘n’ roll, so he and his friends started performing on the streets of Santa Monica, California.
“Igor & Red Elvises put on a terrific show with great music, great spirit and plenty of great dance tunes,” said Bill Unterborn, co-founder of Historic Palmyra’s Pirates of the Erie Canal. “I have never seen a band win over new fans so quickly and so completely. See them once, and you’ll be hooked, too.”
The band’s songs include “I Wanna See You Belly Dance,” “Surfing in Siberia” and “Sad Cowboy Song.”
