Elvis Tribute show at Heights Bowlo reveals 92-year-old fan who met The King before he was famous

Elvis fans were amazed at the Kurrajong Heights Bowling Club Elvis Tribute show – held on Elvis’s birthday on Saturday – when 92-year-old Richmond resident Joyce Parker revealed she’d met The King before he was famous.

Sam and Joyce

Sam Ramarci of Bilpin Apple Pie fame – known by many as the Bilpin Elvis - was astonished when Joyce, who was sitting next to him at a table at the event, said, “I met Elvis before he was famous”.

Joyce, who has lived in the Hawkesbury for the past 45 years, is a lifelong lover of country music.

“Elvis still does it for me” said Joyce.

The annual event brings together the community and a budding ensemble of local music heroes who just can’t get enough of Elvis The Pelvis.

This year had even more of a good vibe, not least because 2020 has been 12 months most of us would surely like to leave behind in the rear view mirror.

The good news is, Kurrajong Heights Bowlo is going from strength to strength after a challenging year for everyone, and here at the Post we’ll be bringing you more of the locals and more news about the events helping make this such a great community venue.
