Thursday 10th June, 2021.
Go back to the mid 70’s as Nic King takes you to a time when Elvis Presley had established himself as not only the greatest performer on the planet but the master of ballads and rock and roll. This was an era where Elvis would let loose and have fun on stage, there were impromptu moments even with the band on some songs. Elvis’s costumes, vocals and charisma from this era was the last memory the fans have of him. Nic brings these spectacular memories and moments back to life during Cooly Rocks On. Nic is from Sydney and was crowned the 2017 winner of the VIVA Surfers Paradise Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest.

Brody Finlay | A Star is Born

FRIday 11th June, 2021.

Elvis on TV was always more than your regular program, more than a special event; it was a cultural experience!  Elvis was unknown in the U.S. when he first appeared on national TV in 1956, his show and subsequent TV appearances launched him on the road to super stardom! During his lifetime, Elvis Presley made 15 high profile appearances on TV and 11 of them were done in 1956!  Elvis was soon the ticket to have as he toured the U.S. with his controversial looks and moves.  The women went weak at the knees, and so will you when Brody Finlay takes to the Cooly Rocks On main stage! Brody is a Queensland performer and was crowned the winner of the VIVA Surfers Paradise Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest in 2018. 

*FREE Show on the Queen Elizabeth Park stage. Not a VIP Legends Pass inclusion.
