LKR website now lists the following performers:

"Bernie Williams & Darlene Love
Keb' Mo' and Paul Shaffer
Bettye Lavette
LKR students

And special guests Mike Myers and more"

Perhaps you'll get some Austin Powers nonsense?

Re: Elvis (solo) plays benefit in Austin, TX, Oct. 22, 2017

I note that the Platinum and Premium donation packages ($5,000 and $2,500 respectively) come with an autographed Diana Krall CD, but no Elvis merchandise - other than a "Photo with Elvis".

Presumably someone has advised that autographed DK CDs have a higher value than EC's own.
