Elvis Extravaganza returns to Renaissance Center

R&M Tribute Entertainment will present the fourth annual Elvis Extravaganza, featuring four of the top Elvis Presley tribute artists, at 7 p.m., Oct. 12 at the Kingsport Renaissance Center.

Each tribute artist will perform as the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll for 30 minutes.

Tickets are $10, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the East Tennessee Veterans Association.

Hosts will be Ronnie Miller of Maryville and Jim Fields of Kingsport. Also starring as Elvis will be Doug Thompson of Pigeon Forge and Terry Turner of Alabama.

Miller, who was born and raised in Knoxville, is an award-winning professional Elvis Tribute Artist, entertainer, singer and performer with more than 10 years of experience in the music business. In 2012, he was inducted into the Elvis Entertainers Network. He has performed on television and radio, and has experience in acting, writing, producing, directing and hosting shows as Elvis Presley. In 2012, he formed R&M Tribute Entertainment.

Singing and entertaining has always been a big part of Doug Thompson’s life. He began singing in church at a young age, and he grew up listening to gospel, country and Elvis. Thompson lives in Pigeon Forge and performs at the Elvis Museum on the Parkway.

Terry Turner has performed from Las Vegas to Iceland and across the United States, the Caribbean and the Pacific. He began his climb in the business as a teenager in the coal mining town of Harlan, Ky., and returns there every year to give back by doing a week-long tour of nursing homes in the area, plus a concert in his hometown.

Turner retired as a major with the Florida Department of Corrections. He holds a black belt in karate and is an award-winning marksman. In 2010, he was voted one of the top Elvis entertainers.
