Right date

Please, look at the webside:

Picture Caption: Current Wendell resident Jimmie Jensen, left, performed with Elvis Presley, center, along with Chuck Carson for two weeks in Florida in 1959.

This is definitive wrong, but what is the right date?

Between Aug 3 and Aug 11 1956 I'd say. He didn't play Florida after that in the 50s.

A picture of Elvis wearing the same shirt and rings can be seen in GR´s book Faces and Stages (Jacksonville hotel room).

Most likely, the picture is from the same date;
Aug 10 th 1956 - Roosevelt Hotel - Jacksonville FLA

...Jensen also claimed he played bass with Elvis....

In all pictures from August 1956, Jacksonville, I know, Elvis wore a white shirt at all times. Unfortunately I don’t know GR´s book Faces and Stages (Jacksonville hotel room). Please, send some pictures.

E-Cat,

thanks for the picture. I think this image was shot by Fred Ward in Miami, August 3 – 4, 1956.

Great photo Mississippi.

My first thought when I read the article was that it was from the May 1956 tour. Elvis wore black shirt a lot during that tour and even played Minneapolis where Jimmie Jensen had his band during the 1950s.

The May tour is a much more obvious timeframe than the August tour, if you ask me.

Hi Brian,

I think so, too. I believe, Jimmie Jensen and his band have never played in Florida.

My instincts say it's the 1956 tour of May 13 to 27.

Elvis played two shows in Minneapolis on the first day (St. Paul and Minneapolis), and my guess is this photo was part of a meet and greet with fellow musicians.

A careful read of the article implies it is further possible that these guys only signed on as the requisite local act for this one day only.

Jensen had his own country western band in Minneapolis from 1950 to 1959 ... Jensen played bass when he performed with Elvis.

Also, that last sentence may ALSO be read as:

Jensen played bass with his own band when he performed on the same bill with Elvis.

This is likely much closer to the truth.
