Concert Review: Sons of Elvis at the Grog Shop


Some bands will do anything for their biggest fan. Take Sons of Elvis, for example. The Cleveland alternative rock act hasn’t played together in some 15 years. But because “super fan” Matthew Morrissey wanted to hear them perform one last time, the guys agreed to do a reunion show even though bassist Dave Hill and singer John Borland now live in New York. Drummer Pat Casa and guitarist Tim Parnin still live in Cleveland, but they’ve pursued other musical projects since Sons of Elvis called it quits. Still, all the members were amenable to the reunion, which took place last night at the Grog Shop, and billed it as their “final show.”
