Scottsdale-based Elvis Presley tribute act Metal Elvis, who have been covering The King's classics with a metal twist from hard to glam to thrash metal, will bring their covers to Martini Ranch Friday.

The group is comprised of lead singer "The King," guitarist "Slush," bassist "Stikki Lixx" and drummer "The Kattman." In addition to being inspired by Elvis the guys cite Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Metallica, White Snake, Poison, Bon Jovi, Twisted Sister and Quiet Riot among their influences on their MySpace page.

The guys don't have any other show dates listed on their page aside from playing the Scottsdale Ultimate New Year's Eve Block Party on Dec. 31 in downtown Scottsdale.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
