Man of Many Voices to entertain at the Legion

Valentine's dinner and dance with Johnny Vallis entertaining Vegas-style

The Many of Voices entertains at the Legion on Feb. 16.

Johnny Vallis is a stranger in town. He comes through every few years, entertains the folks and then leaves as quietly as he came in. He’s like a chameleon, he can be anybody. He’s known for his impersonations of Elvis, Mick Jagger, Louis Armstrong or even Dean Martin, but not as Johnny Vallis.

He’s an impersonator and he does it well. He is best known for his likeness of Buddy Holly but as any born entertainer, he doesn’t limit himself to just one character. He is the Man of Many Voices.

Vallis is putting on a Vegas-type show at the Royal Canadian Legion on Feb. 16. It’s a Valentine dinner show and dance, with cocktails at 5 p.m. and dinner at 6 p.m.

Despite his early interest in music and goal of becoming a performer, Vallis says he isn’t entirely sure what sparked that interest.Vallis said he wasn’t especially good at sports, and simply gravitated to music from early on. “I just wanted a guitar and wanted to play,” he said. “I liked the attention. Anybody who gets into this business, it’s because they like the attention.” His Man of Many Voices musical comedy show is musically based, because, as he says, “My life has been music. I’m a singer first and a comedian second – unless you don’t like my singing, then I’m a comedian first and a singer second.”

Tickets for The Man of Many Voices dinner show are available at the Legion.
