Port Henry Elvis is coming to Port Henry.
Drew Polsun, an Elvis Presley tribute artist, and his band The Fascinations will perform at the Port Henry Knights of Columbus Saturday, Feb. 11, as part of a dinner-show-dance.
“It’s a fundraiser to support the Knights of Columbus and our charitable efforts,” explained Tim Kolodzey of the Knights. “It should be a lot of fun.”
The dinner will be an Italian buffet served at 6 p.m. The Elvis performance will follow.
Tickets, priced at $20 a person, are available by calling Chuck Kolodzey at 546-8290, Nappy Marcotte at 546-7501 or Tim Kolodzey at 546-7125. Tickets must be purchased by Feb. 6.
Polsun and The Fascinations perform Vegas-style shows paying tribute to the King of Rock & Roll.
Drew Polsun is a native of Glenville and has been performing the past 25 years. He has performed for radio and television and is considered one of the top Elvis Tribute Artists in the country.
The show will feature Polsun as Elvis performing with track music, Elvis performing with dancers/backup singers, skit productions, light shows and a full band.
“I have been performing Elvis tribute shows throughout the region for many years,” Polsun said. “I have been blessed and had the great honor recently, thanks to the Elvis festivals, to sing on the Las Vegas Hilton stage, where Elvis himself performed, and also performed for Edison Pena, one of the Chilean miners who was trapped for 70 days and told the world on the David Letterman Show he was a huge Elvis fan.
“If there is one thing I have learned from performing, it’s that Elvis fans are the greatest people in the world,” he said. “Many dear friends have been made throughout the Elvis world, so like Elvis once said, I’ll keep singing the song. That’s what performing is all about, smiles, happiness and more Elvis fans.”
