Gillian's Found Photo #22

It's July '57 and according to the scribble on the back of this photo it's Elvis Presley night at the Variety Show at Kingsway, so says David, whoever that is. Can anyone identify the hot boppin' hepcat in the white bucks? Did he cut any records? There's something familiar looking about this guy. The piano player seems lost, is he about to sit down and start playing? Can the audience hear the unamplified guitars? Who knows, but the Fang surely came up with a good photo this week, no?

This is awesome.

These kids look young enough to still be in school, though that certainly wouldn't preclude [him] from becoming a star.

I wonder how many Elbus wannbes took the stage that night, or how many thousands of times this scene un-folded in high school gyms across the land during this time.

Thanks for this.

It first I thought this is Hayden Thompson, but now I'm not sure anymore. Would also like to know who this is and if I'm right.
