The event starts at 7 p.m.
Terry Padgett is Elvis, Steve Campbell is Orbison and Bob Collins is Nelson.
Performing with Padgett will be Moody Police Chief Bobby Breed on the drums.
Club Fitness owner Priscilla Praytor said this is good, clean, family-oriented entertainment.
“These three guys are phenomenal,” Praytor said. “Previous crowds have had a ball, and now we have three great performers on one stage on one night. We’re looking forward to it because it is going to be awesome.”
Praytor said it’s where good times and good health meet.
“I just want people to come have a great time, whether it is through fitness or entertainment,” she said. “People in the community think this is a great idea because they say there has not been anything like this before. It gives them a chance to go out and have good, clean fun.”
Padgett started his tribute to Elvis in church after being asked to perform at a widows’ banquet in Leeds in 2001.
Since then, Padgett has performed at many events including street dances, festivals, private parties and grand openings. He also performed for Gov. Bob Riley at the Leeds Chamber of Commerce annual banquet at Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum.
“I am looking forward to reuniting with some friends who I think are extremely talented,” Padgett said. “I am honored they are coming to be part of this. I’m excited Chief Breed is joining in again. It is going to be an entertaining evening. To pay tribute to the King of Rock and Roll is an honor in itself.”
Padgett’s wife, Vickie, said from an economic standpoint, people are coming to Moody.
“They are surprised of the growth,” she said. “They eat here, and they end up buying gas here. They feel like they may come back and frequent our businesses. What I am more impressed with is the surprised look people have when they see how clever some people have been in using the space for this entertainment at Club Fitness.”
Campbell’s tribute to Roy Orbison began after appearing as Roy in an Anniston community theater (C.A.S.T.) production of “Boomers: the Musical” in 2005. The portrayal was so well received by the audiences that he developed an entire show as a tribute to the legendary singer. Since that time he has performed as “Roy” in many venues across the South, including Legends in Motion Theater in Pell City and Reliving the Memories Theater in Boaz. Audiences have repeatedly commented that they felt as though they were in attendance for Roy’s classic “Black and White Night” performance. He has surprised and impressed audiences by exhibiting the vocal range that was Roy Orbison’s style. While he believes that no one as unique as Roy Orbison can be truly duplicated, he enjoys performing all of his classic hits as a tribute to the man and his talent.
Aside from being a laid back guys with a great personality, Collins has a passion for music and entertaining a crowd. He started his tribute to Nelson 10 years ago by accident when a friend ask him to sing at a karaoke night. He began his tribute performances at public charity events, and has performed with many other tribute artists throughout the United States.
Campbell holds an annual Giving Back Concert in Alabama benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
He creates Willie Nelson’s greatest hits, spanning four decades of music rebellion and excellence, leaving all ages delighted.
Praytor said tickets are $15 each and kids 12 & under are $10.
