Elvis impersonator Stacey Wayne has had the king in his blood since he was a hip-thrusting young chap. Literally. Elvis and Wayne share the same blood type--O positive--and oddly enough, they also share the same birthday, Jan. 8. But the similarities don't end there. Both dudes were inducted into the Army on March 24, discharged from Fort Dix on March 5 and both have the same original, strawberry-blond hair color. Not like Wayne's keeping track, or anything.
With this pedigree, it's only natural that Wayne decided to embrace his destiny, gel his pompadour and slip into a jeweled gold suit. While Wayne has yet to rock the jailhouse, he spent some QT on the Oldies Caribbean Cruise line and shook up the stage with the likes of The Turtles, Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers, and Paul Revere and the Raiders.
On Saturday, Dec. 19, Wayne will take the Nampa Civic Center stage with the four piece band The Rocketeers to charm crowds with his bellowing bay-bays and unh hunh hunhs. Viva La Nampa!
Saturday, Dec. 19, 8 p.m., $20 adult, $15 kids, Nampa Civic Center, 311 Third St. S., Nampa, 208-468-5500. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit nampaciviccenter.com.
