Christmas with Elvis show and contest
If you think you have what it takes to impersonate Elvis Presley, you could have your chance to prove it in front of a live audience.
Cornwall’s AM/ FM Band will be backing up an internationally acclaimed professional Elvis tribute artist, William Maurice, when the Cornwall Nativity Guards host the first “ Christmas with Elvis Show and Contest” Nov. 28 right here in Cornwall.
The first part of the evening will consist of an Elvis competition. Only three candidates will be selected by the band to perform four Elvis songs each, backed by the AM/ FM Band and backup girl singers. During the intermission, the audience will vote by secret ballot for their favourite performer and the winner will be announced at the end of the William Maurice performance. The winner will receive a commemorative plaque and a $ 100 cash prize. The evening will conclude with a 90-minute set by the AM/ FM Band.
There will be some door prizes along with a Grand Prize. The Grand Prize will be a trip for two to Memphis-Graceland-NashvilleBranson-St. Louis in May 2010. This includes coach transportation, accommodations and tickets to some shows.
So if you think you have what it takes to be Elvis, then pick up your contestant entry form at the Pop Shoppe, corner of Pitt and Emma streets before Oct. 10.
