Fun Facts: Elvis has left the Florida Theatre

Fun Facts Elvis Florida Theatre

Elvis Presley put on several shows on August 10 and 11, 1956 at the Florida Theatre, but not without ruffling some feathers. Juvenile Court Judge Marion Gooding warned Elvis after his first show that he must “tone down” his act. Elvis told reporters “I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong”.  He modified his show nonetheless, wiggling his little finger suggestively with a gesture that replaced some of his less restrained body movements, but still driving the largely female teenage audience wild.  It is said that Judge Marion Gooding sat next to the stage throughout the remainder of Elvis’  performances to ensure that the King’s body movements would not become too “suggestive.”

"Erin is a high energy, intelligent, persistent, communicative and confident professional. I was impressed when he first contacted me to introduce himself within minutes of my online inquiry into a particular listing. […] He also was a hero in leading the buying process from offer to close, all the while deftly handling my absence for much of it."
