If you've never seen Elvis live, this is as close as it gets!  Thane Dunn has spent the past decade building a name for himself as one of the best Elvis tribute acts in the world and on Sat, April 18th (7:30pm), Thane Dunn and The Cadillac Kings will perform their popular production of "Elvis on Tour" at the Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre for the very first time.
 
Winner of the World's Largest International Elvis Tribute Artist Competition and the World's Largest Elvis Gospel Competition, Dunn has been consistently selling out shows and wowing crowds around the globe. From Memphis to Las Vegas, Dunn has even performed alongside Elvis’s original back-up group, The Imperials, as well as co-stars from his movie days, like Blue Hawaii actress, Darlene Thompkins. 
 
He has an uncanny ability to make you feel as if they're actually watching “The King” himself. With his amazing Elvis-like voice and natural physical resemblance, Dunn has been referred to as “the full Elvis package”.  He has all the right moves, but what makes his show even more convincing is his charismatic personality and Presley-like sense of humour. His hair and sideburns are real - and so is his voice. 
 
Dunn wears exact replicas of the costumes popularized by Presley in the early 70's. One suit that Dunn will sport on the 18th even bears a stud  that once adorned Presley's very own, worn in Detroit on April 6th, 1972 during the filming of the now infamous MGM documentary, “Elvis on Tour”. 
 
This world-class production is anchored by The Cadillac Kings. These eight amazing musicians have Elvis TCB band’s sound down pat, and combined with Dunn’s voice, you would swear it was the real thing. There is even an onstage right-hand-man who brings Thane his water, catches his guitar, passes him teddy bears, and puts scarves around his neck for the ladies. He stays very busy during the show. 
 
Ask about our V I P Seating which includes a pre-show Meet & Greet!!
