PostSubject: Elvis Live hosted by Kinsmen   Fri Mar 20, 2009 2:59 am

He ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog…and he’s coming to Delhi.

The Delhi Kinsmen are presenting Elvis Live to Elvis fans of Delhi on Mar. 27 at the Delhi District German Home.

“He is not like any other Elvis impersonator you have ever seen,” said Delhi Kinsmen past president Randy Moffatt. “He is the closest thing to the King himself… we think anyway. He even resembles him right down to a tee.”

Elvis – Anthony Von – has been performing for 15 years and is world-renowned, having won contests across North America, including the title of Canadian Grand Champion at the Collingwood Elvis Festival.

Playing tributes to the king of rock n’ roll since 1993, he has many years of entertainment experience under his belt including his own 50s and 60s swing band, the Beale Street Band.

“He is a tremendous performer,” Moffatt said. “He is very high energy and really leaves the audience feeling like they have seen the real thing.”

The Elvis Live performance is taking place of the yearly Yuk Yuk’s comedy night hosted by the Kinsmen.

Not wanting to lose the date at the German Home – which the Kinsmen hold yearly – they decided to try something new.

“We thought having a 50s and 60s theme was a great idea until low and behold, everyone decided to do that theme this year,” Moffatt joked. “I can assure that no one will be disappointed. We may bring Yuk Yuk’s back, but we really wanted to put a twist on things this year.”

All proceeds from Elvis Live will go towards the remaining fundraising needed for the Delhi Quance Mill project.

“We have $27,000 left to raise,” said Moffatt. “We stress that we know everyone is in tough economic time but we have a town right now that is absolutely booming. This is good, cheap fun. Get out and have a fun night out.”

Tickets for Elvis Live are $25 and doors open at 7 p.m., on Mar. 27. Tickets are available at Dave’s Variety, Delhi District German Home, and Ken Person at Coldwell Banker, Larry VanGoetham at (519) 582-1981 and Brent Stefan at McFarland Rowlands Insurance.
