Elvis Presley at the Marilyn's 60's Diner


Marilyn’s 60’s Diner, at our lovely Tsitsikamma Village Inn, celebrates the sensational 60’s era of Marilyn Manroe and Elvis Presley with jukebox classics, stunning classic cars and bikes and the all-American Burger and cold milkshakes.

We decided to give you a little background on the phenomenal icon, Elvis Presley, that contributed in making this era so sensational.

Elvis Aaron Presley, in the humblest of circumstances, was born to Vernon and Gladys Presley in a two bedded room in Tupelo, Mississippi on January 8, 1935. His twin brother, Jessie Garon was still born, leaving Elvis to grow up as an only child. He and his parents moved to Memphis, Tennessee in 1948, and Elvis graduated from Humes High School there in 1953.

Elvis’ musical influences were the pop and country music of the time. In 1954, he began his singing career with the legendary Sun Records label in Memphis. With a sound and style that uniquely combined his diverse musical influences and blurred and challenged the social and racial barriers of the time, he ushered in a whole new era of American music and popular culture.
He starred in 33 successful films and made history with his television appearances and specials. Without any of the special privileges his celebrity status might have afforded him, he honorably served his country in the U.S Army.

His talent, good looks, sensuality, charisma and good humor endeared him to million’s, as did the humility and human kindness he demonstrated throughout his life. Known the world over by his first name, he is regarded as one of the most important figures of twentieth century popular culture. Elvis died at his Memphis home, Graceland, on August 16, 1977.
“My voice is God’s will, not mine.” – Elvis
