Yes, people will be doing a double take Saturday July 23rd at the Rock n Green Tomato Festival in Miamisburg. The feature afternoon act, after a day of music is a 14 piece Elvis Tribute Band. They sound great.
“Elvis,” played by Ryan Roth is a throwback to the era when Elvis played Las Vegas.
Sequin capes, bawdy gyrations, and that signature hairdo is what you can expect to see. What you will hear is a complicated back up band called “The Comeback Special.”
Come out and hear tunes like “Suspicious Minds,” ” Hunka Hunka Burning Love.” Don’t forget classics like “Hound Dog” and “Jailhouse Rock.”
This concert is just one of the sights and sounds at Rock N Green Tomato Festival at Riverfront Park in downtown Miamisburg. So bring a lawnchair, grab some food and drink at the vendors, then sit and enjoy the live bands!

The event allows families to participate together, or just kids, or just adults. Who is your favorite super hero? Green Lantern? The Flash? Wonder Woman? Who will you dress up as?
Join the fun and come dressed as your favorite super hero. Kids go crazy for this stuff, and what a fun way to promote healthy exercise in their lives. You even get to have some world famous Bill’s Donuts after the race, as well as Mikesells chips, bananas, and grilled hot dogs. What a fun Food Adventure!
Super heroes get hungry too, ya know. Plenty of bottled water will be available for re-hydration of our super powers after the race.
