Narvel in 1957 when he recorded for Sun Records


April 20th I did my first show of this my 62nd year in show biz. It was at "Viva Las Vegas" Rockabilly Weekend at the Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas. It was Tom Ingram's dream to get all the of the living, still performing artists that recorded for Sun Records in the 50s together on the same show.

Billed as stars of Sun Rockabilly, the line up was The Pacers, Carl Mann, Narvel Felts, Hayden Thompson, Alton and Johnny Powers, Ruby Grayzell, WS Holland and Jimmy Van Eaton.

I was asked to do four songs, and for them to be songs I recorded for Sun in 1957. You can see the performance and hear the songs on my Video page.

It was good visiting with old friends plus folks who came through my autograph line. They were from Brazil, Chile, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, England, Sweden, Germany and Russia. A man from Russia told me his parents remember me from my "Country Hits" being played on the "Voice of America". Also through my line were folks from California and Texas. I was really surprised to see a couple from my old home town, Bernie, Missouri.

Larry Cole who plays Elvis in "The Million Dollar Quartet", his lady and Ronnie McDowell's former piano player helped me from my dressing room to my autograph line then to the van to my hotel. It was good having supper with Marc and Gaby, Editors of the magazine, "Blue Suede News".

April 30th Loretta and I celebrated out 56th wedding anniversary. It was a Monday in 1962 also. April 1st would have been our son Bub's 54th birthday. He was 31 when we lost him.

Well hello there. Hope all is well with you and yours. On Saturday, Feb. 24th, a tornado hit out home town, Malden, Missouri. My family and I were thankfully spared! The same night a tornado hit my childhood hometown, Keiser, Arkansas. Be sure to check the Show Dates page for the latest listing.




Well hello there. The last show I did was in November. Thank you for my birthday cards and calls November 11th. Loretta and I enjoyed your Christmas cards. I do plan to do shows during my 62nd year in show biz. The first one will be listed on my Show Dates page. In a month I'll get information to you about more.
