Presentation of “I’ll be home for Christmas”
MIDDLEPORT – Dwight Icenhower and the Promised Land Band’s “I’ll be Home for Christmas” performance at the Farmers Bank Theater at Blakeslee Center is scheduled for November 26 and 27, with both shows starting at 7:00 p.m.
According to a press release from the Blakeslee Center, Icenhower is a five-time World Champion Elvis Presley Tribute Artist. Today he is considered one of the best Elvis tribute artists in the world. He mastered the 50s, 60s and 70s eras of Elvis’ career and won a myriad of national Elvis awards.
The press release further stated: “Icenhower is recognized not only for his great personality on and off the stage, but also for his incredible voice which has at times even been mistaken for Elvis Presley himself. He has performed with many original musicians who have worked with Elvis including: The Jordanaires, The Stamps Quartet, The Sweet Inspirations, Joe Gerchio, DJ Fontana and Duke Bardwell (to name a few). He has won over 75 “first place” prizes in competitions around the world; and in 2015, Dwight Icenhower became the only Elvis tribute artist in history to win four consecutive World Championship “First Place” titles during Elvis Week in Memphis, Tenn. In August 2016, Dwight’s dreams came true when he won the Elvis Presley Enterprises Ultimate. Elvis tribute artist competition.
“In 2018, Dwight Icenhower’s popularity was catapulted when he was selected by APPLE to be the face of their new global advertising campaign. This incredible journey has been a dream come true for Dwight, and he wants to continue using his incredible talents to keep Elvis Presley’s memory alive for many generations to come.
