Ron Adams New Year’s Eve Celebration!

We all know Ron Burgundy, but who is Ron Adams? An Alabamian-born man who began his singing career in the church as a child and quickly became recognized as a talented kid. He went into the police force during early adulthood in Birmingham, Alabama and even won the Police Officer of the Year award. His signing story began while doing an undercover drug deal at a well-known club. Rumor has it that the singer of the club butchered an Elvis tune. After Ron made an obvious face towards the musician, he challenged Ron to do it better. And so, Ron did and the rest is history. Today Ron travels the globe as an Elvis impersonator. So, what can you find at this New Year’s Eve celebration? Well, Elvis music of course but not only that there’s booze there’s food there’s dancing and fellow Elvis lovers. When the show is over, you’ll be singing “Can’t Help Falling in Love” with a performance this good.
