"Elvis" is coming Sunday, Sept 13 from 2 pm to 4 pm. BellRock Hall is hosting royalty! Dan Stoness did his first Elvis impersonation at the age of 12 and has been perfecting his performance as the King of Rock'n Roll ever since. He started his career performing at school and fundraising events around Perth Road Village where he grew up but has since expanded his range and popularity. He was the winner of the Gananoque Festival of the Islands Elvis Tribute contest a few years ago and has been pleasing crowds ever since with his lively interpretations of many of Elvis's best-loved hits--and some less well known that are his personal favourites. He loves to interact with the audience: "I like to get the crowd involved. I don't just sing on stage. I go out into the crowd and I like to get them dancing". Dan has been a lifelong Elvis fan and considers it an honour to be able to pay tribute to one who he considers the greatest entertainer of all time. Dig out your favourite spangled and sequined clothes and come out for what promises to be a rockin' afternoon! Tickets available at Asselstine Hardware, Verona Hardware, Family Farms, Nicole's gifts. $12 a ticket. See www.bellrockhall.com for more information and directions. This concert is sponsored by Reid's Verona Foodland.
