SUMMERSIDE - World champion tribute artist, Thane Dunn, and his Cadillac Kings are returning to the Harbourfront Theatre Aug. 18 with a new show for fans of Elvis and country music.
Dunn's new “Elvis Rock and Country” features not only Presley's iconic rock songs, from "Blue Suede Shoes" to "Suspicious Minds," but also several of his country hits like “Always on My Mind," and "Kentucky Rain."
Special opening act, “The Rhinestone Cowgirl” will kick off the night with her salute to the “queens of country music” – Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette and Patsy Cline. Wearing replica costumes, the Rhinestone Cowgirl will sweep you back to the days of classic country.
Dunn has been called the “full Elvis package,” delivering not only the look, voice, moves, and mannerisms of the king himself, but also that magnetic personality and boyish charm exuded by Presley. Dunn’s show is endorsed by several people who actually worked and performed with Presley in the ‘70s. He will be wearing an exact replica of Elvis’ favourite stage suit called the “Embroidered Peacock.”
“Things have been very busy since our last show. We’ve been performing with Bill Baize of Elvis’ original Stamps Quartet, and he’s even my vocal coach,” said Dunn.
“We are doing this show because not only do I love Elvis but I have always loved classic country — a genre that sadly, rarely gets radio play anymore. People want to hear it. All our previous shows have been a hit, but I expect this one is going to take the roof off.”
