Monday 31st October (Cup Eve)
Priscilla’s Nightmare cover a huge repertoire of Elvis music. From the very early Sun Sessions period right through to the late Vegas years, and with a selection of songs from his classic movie period. This was not your average Elvis Show!
Fronted By Scott Carne with special guest appearance by Sax Man Wilbur Wilde, A Tribute to the King – Elvis! is an unforgettable night of Elvis in a 2-set show.
Priscilla’s Nightmare were born in 1988 when Scott Carne was asked to put together a concept show for a residency at the famous Melbourne 80s venue ‘Inflation’.
The Priscilla’s Nightmare band’s musical talent was hand-picked by Scott for their stellar musicality, vocal skills and stage craft, creating a next-level Elvis tribute to The King.
In fact, Priscilla’s Nightmare gained such a reputation that when the Director of the Sands Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas was in Melbourne he asked Scott to bring Priscilla’s Nightmare to Vegas for a run of shows. Scott declined as he was about to go to London to record a solo record.
Not only that, Ian “Molly” Meldrum was such a fan of the show he insisted that the band must make a record.
Priscilla’s Nightmare went into Sing Sing Studios in Melbourne to record a 7-track EP with an eclectic selection of Elvis songs and also penned three original songs in the old Rockabilly style. This resulted in their first single and video release for original composition by Scott Carne and Tony Fashe ‘She Ain’t No Woman (She’s An Angel)’. This song was showcased on iconic TV shows ‘Countdown’ and ‘Hey Hey It’s Saturday’. With the success of the first single Priscilla’s Nightmare released their second single, Elvis’ song ‘One Night of Sin’, a raunchy song that Elvis later re-wrote lyrics and changed the title to ‘One Night With You’.
Their self-titled EP was released on vinyl, cassette and CD in 1989. It had great chart success which followed with a sell-out national tour.
