MESQUITE, Nev. — Elvis performers from across the U.S. are all shook up over $10,000 in prize money up for grabs with the coveted Elvis Rocks Mesquite title at the 10th annual “Elvis Rocks Mesquite” competition on June 20.

The three-day event hosted by Mesquite Gaming, owner of CasaBlanca Resort and Virgin River Hotel, will be held inside the CasaBlanca Resort Showroom through June 22.

This year, 22 contestants traveling from across the country will attract hundreds of Elvis enthusiasts to Mesquite as they enjoy Elvis’ beloved music.

Elvis contestants will compete in three categories broken down by era: the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. Each era will be judged by a panel of Elvis experts, including Las Vegas headline entertainer Clint Holmes; Michael Grimm, winner of season five of “America’s Got Talent”; and lead celebrity judge Rich Little.

The three judges will narrow down the field to 12 finalists, who will compete in a final performance with a live band at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday. Mesquite Gaming will award $10,000 in prize money, with the overall winner taking home $3,000.

The schedule of events includes a meet-and-greet, movies by the pool, multiple late-night karaoke events and a finals afterparty. Each day will be filled with entertaining tributes, rhinestone studded jumpsuits and “hunka hunka” hip-thrusting action.

Kelly Clinton Holmes will return as the host for the fourth year in a row and will keep the energy high throughout the weekend’s events.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here or by calling 800-585-3737.
