PostSubject: 'Elvis' to perform at BDAAA fundraiser   Sun Jan 20, 2008 4:36 am

Tony Rocker, an award-winning professional Elvis Presley tribute artist, will perform at the Beaver Dam Area Arts Association's third "Your Arts Desire" fund raiser on Feb. 2 at Beaver Dam Country Club.

Rocker, who will perform two, 45-minute sets, was born in Milwaukee and lives in Cottage Grove.

Inspired by his mother's love for "The King," Rocker has been an Elvis fan all of his life. He has been performing on a regular basis since the 1980s, playing and singing in various bands that specialize in music from the 1950s to the 1970s. The entertainer started his career playing guitar, then switched to drums, and was a lead singer for several bands. He always sang Elvis songs with these bands and started performing as an Elvis tribute artist in the summer of 2002. Now he performs his own shows and is well-known for his full productions backed by his Elvis tribute band, "The Comeback Special."

Rocker has appeared on several Wisconsin TV programs and has been publicized throughout the Midwest. The popular singer has won Elvis tribute artist awards in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa, and has performed at the State Fair and at Summerfest. He has a strong fan club and a full performance schedule.

Mary Jane Payne, BDAAA member and sponsor said, "Tony Rocker is well-known for his commitment to a fully authentic tribute performance, demonstrating respect, dedication and admiration for Elvis Presley. He pays detailed attention to every nuance of the icon's song delivery and he invests in the most authentic costuming possible."

Those who attend the "Your Arts Desire" semi-formal for singles, couples, and groups will also enjoy a cocktail hour, dinner, live and silent auctions, photo opportunities with Tony Rocker and celebrity stand-ups, and dancing to the music of "The Little Big Band."

The evening's program will be managed by master of ceremonies Roger VanHaren and auctioneer Darlyn Pfeiffer of Victorian Lions. The live auction will offer serenades by Tony Rocker, one-of-a-kind "Fab Frames" created by artists and community contributors, and several special items including two framed Owen Gromme prints.

BDAAA welcomes event sponsors who will receive special acknowledgements as part of the sponsor package.

Tickets, at $45 per person, are available at the Seippel Homestead and Center for the Arts, 1605 N. Spring Street, Beaver Dam, WISC. or from the event committee, including Brian French, Darlyn Pfeiffer, Mary Jane Payne, Betsy Lampert, Donna Rochwite and Rodney Binder.

Tickets can also be ordered by calling 920-885-3635. Individual or table reservations should be received by Jan. 25.
