Nationally recognized Elvis tribute artist Dwight Icenhower will return to Stuart’s Opera House in Nelsonville on Saturday, March 29 at 8 p.m.

Raised in Pomeroy, Ohio, Icenhower began his Elvis career by singing karaoke at a local fair when he was just 16 years old. Since then, he has become one of the very few Elvis tribute artists to make a full-time career out of performing, playing 4-5 shows weekly throughout the U.S.

Born four years after Presley passed away in 1977, Icenhower has studied every move that Elvis made and mastered all eras of Elvis' career.

Over the years, he has shared the stage with bandmates and personal friends of Presley, including DJ Fontana, The Jordanaires, The Sweet Inspirations, Cynthia Pepper, Julie Parrish, Charlie Hodge and Joe Esposito.

An area crowd favorite, Icenhower has packed the Opera House in the past and Stuart's is advising those interested to purchase tickets soon (box seats are currently sold out).

Floor seats are $25 in advance or $30 at the door and balcony aeats are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. For more information call 740-753-1924 or visit www.stuartsoperahouse.org.
