Virtual Elvis to perform at dinner show

“The King” will entertain the folk at the Legion on Sunday.

Virtual Elvis to perform at dinner show

Elvis, Elvis, Elvis. Everybody loves Elvis although many of them won’t admit it. Elvis Presley was the man, the rebel and the heart throb of scores of women who grew up in the 1950s and 60s. The greased back duck tail, blue suede shoes and velvety voice are legend and women still quiver when they hear the King sing.

Come February 13, the day before Valentine’s Day, Elvis will once again entertain folks at the Legion. Virtual Elvis is a stage persona created by Victoria’s Scott MacDonald. He’s got the moves and that sultry voice.

MacDonald’s’s singing career started early as a member of Ottawa’s magnificent Christ Church Cathedral choir. He can remember his choir Master and music teacher telling him to “take the Elvis out of it” even then.

In the early 1990s MacDonald happened to hear Elvis performing “American Trilogy” on TV and was spellbound by the “King’s” performance. At that moment he committed himself to a life-long study of Elvis’ life and his music. He practiced his performances on friends and family and was soon entertaining at various venues and he soon quit his day job to devote his time to his musical career.

The evening will begin with cocktails at the no-host bar at the Royal Canadian Legion on Eustace Road. Dinner follows at 6 p.m. and Virtual Elvis will perform at 7 p.m.
