Elvis is awesometheres no denying it. If someone told us thered be a concert featuring a hologram-Elvis, à la the one who showed up on American Idol a couple of years ago, wed be there. A Jewish Elvis, or Jelvis, on the other hand, wouldnt so easily convince. After all, who needs another middle-aged crooner in a tight, sequined jumpsuit strutting around a stage when weve already got Neil Diamond? But since Neilthe real Jewish Elvisdoesnt have a show tonight, Jelvis (who hails from Memphis, Egypt) is the next best thing. Hes reinterpreted the Kings songbook to bring us such gems as Shul House Rock, Are You Hungry Tonight, and Oy Vey, My Way.
