Elvis may have left the building, but his music will fill the Coronation Community Centre this weekend!
Steve Pineo’s Elvis Show returns as the Coronation Royal Performing Arts celebrates its 10th anniversary season by highlighting some of the top performances from the last decade.
Pineo, who last brought this much-loved Elvis performance to the local stage in 2016, follows the series kick-off with Trevor Panzack earlier this month.
Now, all eyes turn to Pineo’s performance, this Saturday, Nov. 24.
Far from an “impersonator” – don’t expect kitschy outfits and hip gyrations – Steve Pineo is a consummate entertainer with an amazing voice, who comes to the stage backed by a four-piece band and a quartet of singers, says Performing Arts board member Linda McLarty.
“He just sings Elvis really, really, well,” McLarty says, recalling Pineo’s last appearance two years ago. “He was flawless – he just has a talent that’s beyond belief.”
And yes, because it would be a blue Christmas without it, you can likely expect to hear a few of the King’s holiday favourites, too!
The series is about so much more than the music.
The performances are planned as affordable, full evenings out, with cocktails at 5:30 p.m., a delicious buffet dinner at 6 p.m. and the show getting underway at 7:30 p.m.
“You go on a journey with the performers as they share stories about the music and their own experiences. They’re engaging, and the audiences enjoy them so much,” McLarty reflects.
