Tickets On Sale Now!
St. John’s, NL– Fans of Elvis Presley, get ready! Newfoundland’s favorite tribute to The King is returning this fall to recreate Rock ‘n’ Roll history like never before. International Elvis Tribute World Champion, Thane Dunn and his 8 piece Cadillac Kings, will take the stage at Holy Heart Theatre on November 20 & 21 with their brand new Elvis Rockin’ Christmas show.
The last time Dunn came to town, he performed three sold out shows as fans flocked to the theatre to experience first hand what it might have been like to see Elvis live in concert. Thane Dunn & The Cadillac Kings didn’t disappoint, with fans raving that Dunn was “as close to the real thing as you could get.”
His new show features Presley’s favourite Christmas classics from Blue Christmas to Silver Bells with hits like Blue Suede Shoes and Suspicious Minds thrown in the mix.
World renowned rock photographer, John Rowlands, who has photographed major stars from The Beatles to Bowie, will open both shows. In 1972, Rowlands was hired to photograph Elvis on tour, documenting 48 performances. He will speak of his adventures being on the road with The King, the infamous TCB band and Presley’s entourage. Rowlands is very charismatic and his stories of Rock ‘n’ Roll history leave audiences spellbound. He is donating a never-before-seen Elvis Presley print for online auction with all proceeds going to Daffodil Place.
“We are proud to support Daffodil Place. Cancer took my father and nearly took my wife 3 1/2 years ago,” said Dunn from his Moncton home. “I’ve been there and know how hard it is on families and that’s why we are glad to help.”
Winner of the World’s Largest International Elvis Tribute Artist Competition and the World’s Largest Elvis Gospel Competition, 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. Dunn wears exact replicas of the costumes popularized by Presley in the early 70’s and will don a $6000 copy of the Elvis Pharoah suit made specifically for the Newfoundland Elvis Rockin’ Christmas Show.
This world-class production is anchored by an eight piece band, The Cadillac Kings. These amazing musicians have Elvis TCB band’s sound down pat, and combined with Dunn’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 this amazing show.
