And D.J. Fontana did play the show.

Nashville session whiz Hank Garland filled in for lead guitarist Scotty Moore, and a Dallas buddy of Fontana's named Chuck Wiginton handled the bass.

Did they played with Elvis on the Hawaiian shows on November 1957, his last concerts from the 50's?

After the Tupelo 1957 show, he did five shows in California in late October, and the three shows in Hawaii in November, and they all featured Scotty, Bill, D. J., and the Jordanaires.

Seek out Scotty's 90's book That's All Right Elvis. Worth the read.
