Elvis Impersonator Brings Award Winning Show to St. John’s
Sept 25 & 26, Holy Heart Theatre
Tickets on Sale Now!
St. John’s, NL— If you never saw Elvis live, this is as close as it gets! Thane Dunn has spent the past decade building a name for himself as one of the best Elvis impersonators in the world. On September 25 & 26, Newfoundlanders will experience this award-winning spectacle for the first time when “Elvis” rocks the Holy Heart Theatre in St. John’s.
“The band is really excited for these shows and I feel like a kid who can’t sleep waiting for Christmas morning,” laughs Dunn about performing in St. John’s for the first time. “I can’t believe how many emails I’ve received from Newfoundlanders who have heard of us and are just as excited to see me…It’s like we’ve started an Elvismania over there! I’m going to do my best to live up to my reputation.”
Winner of the World’s Largest International Elvis Tribute Artist Competition and the World’s Largest Elvis Gospel Competition, Thane has been consistently selling out shows and wowing crowds around the globe. From Memphis to Las Vegas, the Moncton native has even performed alongside Elvis’s original back-up group, The Imperials, as well as co-stars from his movie days, like Blue Hawaii actress, Darlene Thompkins.
Thane has an uncanny ability to make audiences feel as if they’re actually watching “The King” himself. With his amazing Elvis-like voice and natural physical resemblance, Thane has been referred to as “the full Elvis package”. He has all the right moves, but what makes his show even more convincing is his charismatic personality and Presley-like sense of humour. His hair and sideburns are real…and so is his voice.
Thane wears exact replicas of the costumes popularized by Presley in the early 70’s. One even bears a stud that once adorned Presley’s very own suit, worn in Detroit on April 6th, 1972 during the filming of the now infamous MGM documentary, “Elvis on Tour”.
This world-class production is anchored by The Cadillac Kings. These eight amazing musicians have Elvis TCB band’s sound down pat, and combined with Thane’s voice, you would swear it was the real thing. There is even an onstage right-hand-man who brings Thane his water, catches his guitar, passes him teddy bears, and puts scarves around his neck for the ladies. He stays very busy during the show.
You will hear all your favorite Elvis rock, country, and gospel hits. The “Elvis on Tour” production features many Presley classics from Love Me Tender to Suspicious Minds, performed with all the glitz and glamour you would expect from “The King”.
