    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Real estate agent Sylvain Leduc travelled to Niagara over the weekend but it wasn’t to check out the region’s hot real estate market.

    The Quebec resident was a competitor in the Niagara Falls Elvis Festival at Greg Frewin Theatre.

    Leduc began entertaining family and friends with his Elvis Presley skills when he was just 15.

    “I grew up with his music,” he said Saturday as he prepared to take to the stage for the second round of the competition. “It’s almost the only music I’ve listened to all my life.”

    While he has performed as an Elvis tribute artist — referred to as an ETA — for decades, he didn’t enter the competition circuit until a few years ago.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The King of Rock n’ Roll takes centre stage at the Scotiabank Convention Centre this week for a worthy cause.

    Blue Suede Shoes: The King, The Colonel, The Memories, runs Feb. 14 through 19 at the Stanley Avenue facility.

    The musical biography, told through the eyes of Elvis’ business manager, Colonel Tom Parker, details Elvis’ humble beginnings at Sun Records to the Hollywood years and on to the flamboyant Las Vegas residency.

    “This is a major production,” said organizer Ken Lamb. “People are going to see an outstanding musical about the life and times of one of the world’s most iconic performers.”
