During the "Elvis Story" show at Casino Rama on July 30, 2004,  the legendary Scotty Moore and the legendary DJ Fontana were recognized publicly in front of 5,200 cheering fans as  Ronnie McDowell* presented Scotty and DJ with plaques on behalf of the Love For Elvis Fan Club and LadyLuck Music (and their respective fan bases which extend world wide).

Fan Club Co-President, Ronda Marson, club member, Wendy King, and Carol Hunter, representing Lady Luck Music, were thrilled and proud beyond words to see Scotty and DJ receive a well-deserved standing ovation for being "the wind beneath Elvis' wings."  Carol, an "original" fan, Wendy, "in the middle," and Ronda, a "younger generation" fan, are proof positive that Elvis' music, which Scotty and DJ had such a big hand in creating, is reaching each new generation and will continue to be passed down through the years.

As always, the sold out show featuring Ronnie McDowell, Scotty, DJ, and the legendary Jordanaires was absolutely wonderful, and we hope everyone will be back again soon. We also very much enjoyed meeting Gail Pollock and the "Moore's Mafia" girls. Thanks to all involved.

*Ronnie came through for us "big time."   We had planned to give the plaques to Scotty and DJ after the show, outside of the casino area, as presentations are not normally allowed in that area.  We just happened to bump into Ronnie walking through the massive lobby of the Casino about an hour before the show (what are the odds of that happening??)...and it was agreed that he would present the plaques on stage during the show.  And did he ever! He made a grand scale production of honouring Scotty and DJ. We were completely thrilled!  Of course, it wasn't the plaques that really mattered, but Scotty and DJ's public recognition in front of the sold out 5,200 member audience. We'll be forever grateful to Ronnie McDowell for helping us out "big time" so that these two living legends could be publicly recognized.
