nights at our festival, to represent that music again, Thursday night, June 7, by tribute artists, but also on Friday night June 8th, to have bands playing music, rock, soul blues , Elvis
was a fan of a lot of those genres,of music,” said Tom Brown,  host of the Elvis Tribute Artist competition and a Tupelo native.
