Vegas In The Morning – Elvis’ Music Is Back! – The next chapter of the life of Elvis in music has begun. Fate has recently summoned literally the entire Elvis Presley “Hit Making Team” back to the recording studio to continue the King’s music legacy. American singing sensation John Krondes and The Jordanaires have joined forces with the Presley “Hit Makers” in a monumental music project that has left music fans worldwide shocked and stunned. Edward Lozzi of Edward Lozzi Associates Public Relations in Hollywood, CA has called it a “Historic Moment”, one of the greatest Hollywood stories seen in years.

As Elvis had said in song, “Miracles I Guess Still Happen Now And Then.” This fans is our miracle. For the first time since the King’s death in 1977, the Presley “Hit Makers” have now answered fates call to return to the studio. The Elvis Presley “Hit Making Machine” is back in place with John Krondes and The Jordanaires in the recording studios of New York, Nashville, Las Vegas and Los Angeles creating “Original” new music with some of Elvis’ original composers for what music experts are now calling the beginning of a new Era in Music.

Vegas In The Morning puts even more of Elvis’ Hit Making Team together. The Sweet Inspirations join John and the Jordanaires on this rockin’ party song. (That’s the Jordanaires’ timeless bass, Ray Walker, belting out those bottom vocals.) Vegas In The Morning was written as a salute to Las Vegas’ 100th birthday by John and his long-time co-writer, Paul Evans.
