Dear Elvis fans!

We had so much fun and great memories from our cruise on the NCL Jade in 2016, that we are very excited to „SAIL“ again! Priscilla and I are looking forward to cruising with you the fans, the TCB-Band and Dennis Jale on the TCB-Cruise 2018. See you on board! 

Priscilla Presley & Jerry Schilling

The Original-Band of Elvis

James Burton: Born in Shreveport/Louisiana, Burton is considered the greatest guitar icon of the American music scene next to Eric Clapton. Over the course of his nearly 50-year-long career, he has played with countless stars in showbiz. Among others: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, Tina Turner, Jerry Lee Lewis and Ricky Nelson. The role model of generations still garners attention today, especially with his „International Guitar Festival“, which Burton organizes annually in his hometown Shreveport.

Ronald Tutt: The byname „hard-working“ says it all. Ronnie Tutt from Dallas/Texas is considered one of the hardest and fastest drummers in the rock scene. He was the one who gave Elvis the sonorous backing for his famous karate movements on stage. After Elvis’ passing, the graduated drummer went on as a member of the Jerry Garcia Band and gained countless fans. Today, Ronnie ist touring the world with Neil Diamond.

Glen Dee Hardin: The man at the piano arranged countless world hits for his friend Elvis Presley – including „The Wonder Of You“, “Suspicious Minds” and „Bridge Over Troubled Water“. But Glen D. Hardin has been a popular musician since 1962. He has shared the stage with Sammy Davis Jr., was in the studio with Sonny & Cher and is friends with Tina Turner. Elvis once said to his bustling piano player: „The wildest guy in my crew is Glen D. Hardin, too!“

Dennis Jale

Dennis Jale is one of Austria’s most famous rock-entertainers. In the mid-90s, he founded the Jam Gang together with guitarist Goran Mikulec. One of the most successful shows in his tight touring schedule is the Rocking Christmas Show with the Sweet Inspirations, the original backing vocals of Elvis Presley. Since 2003, Dennis Jale performs with the TCB-Band, the original line-up of Elvis Presley in Austria’s largest concert halls. But Dennis Jale also wins as a songwriter. On his CDs you will find both reinterpreted covers and self-composed songs that carry the diverse musical thumbprint of his multi-talent.
