POSTPONED: Drive the Blues Away: Viva Las Vegas

April 3, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Drive the Blues Away has been postponed

UPDATE 3.10.2020
It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that Drive the Blues Away: Viva Las Vegas has been postponed due to issues surrounding the COVID-19 virus.

Ultimately, there is no higher priority for us than the health, safety and physical well-being of each of you, along with everyone else involved in the production of the event. We understand how extremely frustrating this is because so many of you are looking forward to this year’s event, including those who have already made travel arrangements. We will be refunding tickets this Friday, March 13 and offering $5 off for our future DTBA event to those purchasers (Date TBD).
We sincerely thank you for your continued loyalty and patience during this difficult time, and we’re looking forward to hosting you in the near future. Please send any questions you may have to Reagan.Bender@aat.org.

Suggested Attire + Elvis Costume Contest

Elvis will be marrying couples and renewing vows at our little white chapel! So come in wedding attire – tacky bridesmaid dresses, velour suits or whatever says Vegas wedding to you! We also encourage people to come dressed as their favorite Elvis (Hillbilly Cat, leathers, or, of course, bejeweled jumpsuit), and join in the Elvis look-alike competition on our main stage!


All our wedding spots are now filled but pictures with Elvis in our “little white chapel” are still available the night of the event.


Elvis Presley bought and owned many Cadillacs in his short lifetime – up to 200 by some estimates. America’s Car Museum’s exhibit, Cadillac – The Standard of the World, tells the story of the brand’s inception and vaunted reputation for designing and building some of the finest, and most desirable automobiles in the world in our Showcase Gallery.
