Darren Lee pays tribute to the King of Rock ’n’ Roll during an evening of hip swinging and Las Vegas glamour this Friday.

The Elvis impersonator takes the stage at the Port Theatre Friday (Oct. 26) at 7:30 p.m. Lee and The Memphis Flash will perform favourite Elvis hits such as Burnin’ Love, All Shook Up, Can’t Help Falling In Love, and A Little Less Conversation.

Lee’s alternative life as Elvis onstage began after he won the World Elvis Contest held in Las Vegas in 1997 on the 20th anniversary of Elvis’s death.

He became known on the West Coast for being an Elvis tribute act completely recreating Elvis’s 1968 comeback special performance at the Queen Elizabeth and Michael J. Fox theatres.

In 1998 he won the Tri-Cities Entertainer of the Year Award.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $32.50 and are available at the Port Theatre box office, located at 125 Front St., by calling 250-754-8550 or going to www.porttheatre.com.
