Arts Calendar

One Night With Elvis

Date: January 5, 2019,
Venue: Crown Uptown Theatre - 3207 E. Douglas Ave., Wichita

The Event:

Don't tell Wichita's Dale Kenny Elvis is dead. In Kenny's life, Elvis has taken a life all his own.

Kenny never set out to be an Elvis Impersonator, and when it was suggested to him by his wife he really didn't want to imitate The King. But she pushed just the right button, and convinced him to give becoming Elvis a try.

"I said I didn't want to get into that - I'm not an impersonator, I'm an entertainer. She said 'you would not be an impersonator, you are a tribute artist."

He plays out the show as a tribute in more way than one. Not only is Kenny and his band paying homage to Elvis, they are remembering Kenny's first wife.

Her performed a private concert for more than 300 "Red Hat" ladies in Wichita, and after the Downtown Newton Car show in 2010.

The car show was what Kenny called his first public performance as The King. Following that show, he was invited to Las Vegas - twice.

During the second trip, Dale Kenny was ranked as the fourth-best Elvis impersonator in the world. But that accolade doesn't mean much to him.

"All I am is Dale Kenny that performs with a Classik's Band, I just like to see somebody in an audience smile."
