Andrea’s vocal abilities have been described as pure and powerful with an engaging sound.

Andrea sang full time with various bands singing blues, pop, country and Contemporary Christian music and then moved to Phoenix Arizona and pursued a Business Degree. In 2002 Andrea moved back to Canada and in 2004 was the winner of “Okanagan Idol.” She performed at The Merritt Mountain Music festival in July 2005 and has since performed across the Okanagan.

Joe has been performing in tribute shows for many years, and hopes to bring the Roy fans down memory lane with the great Roy hits such as Pretty Women, Only the Lonely and much more.

Adam Fitzpatrick

Adam has been doing his Elvis tribute for about 3 ½ years and enjoys it immensely. He started doing this when a friend dared him to go into the Penticton Pacific Northwest Elvis Festival. He had never sung before, and certainly never in public, but he took up the challenge, entered and won the Amateur division of the Festival competing against 15 other hopeful contestants. His popularity has skyrocketed ever since.

His first show after his win in Penticton was to open the PNE’s annual Elvis Tribute show before an estimated audience of 12,000 Elvis fans.

For the last 4 years Adam has been performing in many different towns and cities throughout BC and Alberta with his own show Elvis Evolution. He also tours with the Louisiana Hayride as young Elvis. Last July Adam placed 5th in the world’s largest Elvis Festival held in Collingwood, Ont.

He has recently returned from Memphis where he was invited to perform at the popular Clarion Hotel. He has been invited to Memphis again in August to perform as young Elvis. Adam has recently recorded his very first CD.

The show at Creekside Theatre in Lake Country is this Saturday, April 28 at 7:30 p.m.
