CLEAR LAKE — Those who love Elvis Presley’s music will not want to miss “The Voice of Elvis and Legends Texas Tour” concert at 6 p.m. March 12 at the Bayou Theater on the University of Houston at Clear Lake’s campus, 2700 Bay Area Blvd.

Award-winning second-generation tribute artist Jesse Aron, 33, of Wisconsin, will perform from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. taking on two roles — Elvis and Roy Orbison.

“I do three decades of Elvis — the ’50s through the ’70s and three costume changes,” said Aron. “I do Roy Orbison at the end of the first set.”

His wife, Tarie Aron, will serve as Marilyn Monroe and the show’s mistress of ceremonies.

“I like performing as Elvis because it’s an opportunity to make people happy and bring back memories — as well as introducing Elvis to new, younger fans,” Aron said.

Aron said he enjoys educating the audience about Elvis during his show with things they may not have known.

“I try to be pretty respectful. I portray Elvis the right way.”

He is a two-time “Grand Prize Winner” at Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s Potawanomi Casino Event and a two-time “Lady Luck Music Peoples Choice Winner” in Montreal.

“I’ve been called the ‘Voice of Elvis’ by my peers and people in the same business,” Aron said.

“Some people have said after concerts that if they close their eyes, it would be like Elvis was there.”

Aron also has performed with many of Elvis’ musicians and backup singers including “The Jordanaires” and Elvis’ original drummer, D.J. Fontana.

Tickets for the show are $20 in advance by calling 281-358-4867 or $25 at the door.
