Elvis fans won’t want to miss Elvis – The Way it Was and Aloha from Hawaii when it comes to Huntsville on Saturday, Nov. 8. 2008

Canada’s Number 1 Elvis tribute act stars international award-winning tribute artist Stephen Kabakos, who appeared in his Elvis role at the Algonquin Theatre in Nov. 2005 and again in 2006.

The first half of the show will focus on Elvis Presley’s formative years, recreating the fabulous 50s, 60s and the 1968 leather-clad comeback. The second segment will re-enact the 1973 concert spectacular Aloha From Hawaii, a music concert that was headlined by Elvis Presley and broadcast live via satellite around the world on Jan. 14, 1973. The concert aired in over 40 countries across Asia and Europe and was watched by over one billion viewers worldwide.

Aloha From Hawaii will be presented song-for-song, note-for-note, move-for-move, and word-for-word. Kabakos even has a custom-made jumpsuit that is a reproduction of the white American Eagle design the King wore that night. In place of Presley’s TCB (Takin’ Care of Business) band, Kabakos has a 10-piece ensemble of musicians and singers called TVB (The Very Best).

There are many Elvis tribute artists on the entertainment circuit, but there is only one Stephen Kabakos. Hailing from Milton, Ontario, Kabakos is ranked the number one Elvis impersonator in the world. He has the young Elvis look and all the costume changes that fans want to see.

Born to play Elvis from the golden to the Vegas years, this international award-winning artist executes a dynamic, authentic portrayal that makes him one of the most highly praised Elvis stylists in the country.

From being crowned grand champion at the 2001 Images of the King World Competition in Memphis, Tennessee to performing all over the world, Kabakos’ list of credits and achievements is impressive.

However, more impressive is the passion he brings to the stage. Kabakos has emerged as one of the most sought-after Elvis stylists in North America. Mastering the look, sound, gyrations and mannerisms of the King of rock and roll, Kabakos covers Elvis’ entire career from the early Sun Studio recordings, through to the army and G.I. Blues, his movies, the 1968 Comeback Special and the Hawaii satellite concert.

Featured in theatres and television shows across the country, Kabakos has directed and produced his own sold-out concert productions to overwhelming success and has performed with Presley’s leading musicians, such as the world-famous Jordanaires and the legendary D.J. Fontana.

Kabakos’ fascinating interpretation, exciting stage presence, authentic costumes, and electrifying charisma make for an outstanding, must-see performance filled with music, magic, and memories.

Tickets for Elvis: The Way it Was and Aloha from Hawaii are $29 plus GST, and available at the Algonquin Theatre box office on Main Street, online at www.algonquintheatre.ca or by dialing 705-789-4975.
