Local talent opens for Elvis tribute

Opening the evening’s entertainment at 6:30 will be Kitten and the Curves.

The 3-Eh Stage at the Creston Ramada will be All Shook Up on Saturday evening when The Jeffrey Elvis Show takes to the stage following two local bands.

“Not only does Jeffrey naturally look like Elvis, his atomic voice and personality is hard to distinguish from the King himself,” says organizer Velle Weitman.

Performing for two years now, the Jeffrey Elvis Show has become the most requested Elvis tribute show in the Pacific Northwest. He truly captures the heart and soul of America’s greatest performer. With his combination of vocal and appearance likenesses, as well as character, Jeffrey Elvis is extremely rare even among the world’s best Elvis tribute performers. He has competed in Las Vegas and Dallas, and will be competing in Penticton this year.

In addition to standards like Hound Dog, Don’t Be Cruel and Burning Love, Jeffrey will perform other popular tunes from the era, like My Way, Unchained Melody and You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling.

Opening the evening’s entertainment at 6:30 will be Kitten and the Curves, most recently seen at Casey’s Community House on Saturday.

Following will be The Howling Wannabes, which includes songwriter-singers Gary Deatherage and David Lyons, drummer Jason Deatherage, bass guitar player Allan Kimmel, and lead guitar player Rick Potyok. The band has been together for over twenty years, and has produced three high quality studio albums of their unique cosmic rock and quirky original music. The band’s two songwriters have been a long-term fountain for new songs, and the group always provides tight and eclectic live performances of material reflecting current human concerns and topics.

Gates open for the August 11 th concert at 5 pm. Food and beverages are available on site. Tickets are available at the Ramada, Black Bear Books and Fly in the Fibre.
