Elvis is alive at the ParamountPublished 5:11am Thursday, December 13, 2012
There’s going to be a lot of hip-swiveling and old-fashioned crooning going on at the Paramount Theatre this weekend.
Joe Sir will be at the Paramount for “The Elvis Tribune Show” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15.
Sir first started performing Elvis songs at nursing homes when he wasn’t on the road with the Sir Brothers, a family band he was a part of since he was a child. After his family and friends noticed how talented he was as Elvis, he began to incorporate the tribute act into other shows.
“I just bought some tapes, bought a jacket, and next thing you know I was going around the Twin Cities,” Sir said.
The Elvis Tribute Show will encompass four eras in Elvis’s career, from his debut in the ’50s to his movie-star era, his gospel music and the ’68 Comeback Special to his time in Las Vegas.
Tickets are $14 in advance, $16 at the door.
