"All Shook Up" in Collierville

Barbeque and Elvis. What else are you going to do in Collierville on Saturday night?
Marina and Clay Brinkley visited Graceland Saturday. Marina had never been there.

After their visit, Clay joked, "All we need to do now is go see a live show of Elvis impersonators."

They were surprised that night when they attended the 15th annual Partners in Preservation Party and Taste of the Town in Collierville. They ran into several guys dressed up like the King. "All Shook Up on the Square" was the theme of the outdoor event, which featured food from 26 restaurants and live music.

An "Elvis Impersonation Contest" was part of the program.

Representing Huey's in Collierville, Jimmy Madeksho, Max Johnson and Jake Dunn, members of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity at the University of Memphis, won the first-place trophy for their Elvis dance rendition to a Soulja Boy song.

Mary Catherine Wood choreographed the routine.

"She's the Paula Abdul of Collierville," said her friend, Wendy Rodgers.
Aren't you just sick you missed it?
