If you've seen young musicians strutting around Orange with some blue suede shoes, you haven't been hallucinating.
Some of Sydney's best young musicians have been staying in Orange while performing at the Parkes Elvis Festival this month.
The group of 18 musicians are part of Big Music School in Crow's Nest.
Musician Oli Naglost has performed at Elvis' former home of Graceland, and said it was incredible to see The King's spirit living on half a world away.
"Going to Graceland we saw the history and what everything was like when Elvis was in his prime, to see it's living on today in Parkes in Australia... it's great his music's had that much of an impact."
It's Oli's second time at the Elvis festival but said the talent was "amazing" and the vibe was "crazy".
"Last year we didn't know what to expect, we'd never been out here before and it was a new place for us. We didn't have expectations but we were blown away... what we saw at Graceland is still living here."
Fellow band member Own Borg said they'd had a "pretty cool reception" at the festival, and will play second from the top of the bill on Saturday on the main stage.
"It's a bit in the middle of nowhere but areas like this have been affected by drought and we get to give them some music they love."
"It's cool, Big Music give us such cool opportunities and we play the coolest shows."
