Elvis Tribute Artist Matt Cordell Returns To Gem Theatre March 10

Friday, February 16, 2018

The Merchants and Friends of Etowah will sponsor the return of award winning Elvis Tribute Artist, Matt Cordell on Saturday, March 10.  Mr. Cordell will perform his Ultimate Variety & Tribute Show at 7:30 p.m. in the Historic Gem Theater in Etowah.  It has been almost three years since Mr. Cordell performed at the Gem Theater and there’s been a huge request for his return, said organizers.  The Merchants & Friends of Etowah had sponsored Matt Cordell’s performances at the Gem Theater for 12 years, most years hosting a Saturday and Sunday show for several shows each year. 

While Mr. Cordell has not been in Etowah, he has been touring in numerous states, as well as on cruise ships where he performs everyday, sometimes for a week at a time. He has also opened his own theater called Matt Cordell’s Show Place Theater in Pigeon Forge. 

Review for Matt Cordell: 

Elvis could take anyone's song and sing it just like it or make it even better.  Matt Cordell has that talent as well; he also performs a tribute to Jason Aldean, Bobby Darin and others.  He said, “I’m very comfortable performing Aldean’s songs; he’s from Georgia, I’m from Georgia; he’s country and I’m country and so it’s like the real me out there.” 

Matt performs a variety of songs by several different artist and calls his show, Matt Cordell’s Ultimate Variety and Tribute Show.  That’s just a sample of some of the things Matt has planned for the show March 10 in Etowah.  He loves to perform at the Gem; he said he loves the amazing acoustic in the historic theater. 

The fans get a taste of a few different types of shows at his Show Place Theater and then when they come to the Gem Theater they get another treat with the different show he does there as well.  No matter where you see Matt Cordell perform, he leaves his fans wanting more.

TVA Land Grab

The Georgetown land grab is just ‘Business as Usual’ for TVA.
