St. Vincent Summer Concert with his show The Illusion of Elvis on Friday, Aug. 12. Vernon and his wife Marsha per- form with a minimal set up but have maximum impact. She proud- ly announced, mid-show that Ver- non has been selected as one of ten Elvis tribute acts across the nation to get the seal of approval from Elvis Presley Enterprises. Recently he won sixth place in a competi- tion in which more than 38,000 competed to be the best Elvis act. Vernon splits his show into two parts, beginning with early 1950's Elvis and then after a break, during which Marsha (who sings backup during his act) sings some familiar golden hits, he comes back out as the Elvis of the late 1960's. In classic style Vernon, whose vocal timbre is amazingly simi- lar to Presley himself, wooed the ladies by giving them hugs, scarves and even a Hawaiian lei at one point. Performing against an expert- ly recorded sound track of Elvis' greatest hits, Vernon gyrates and plays guitar, swiveling his hips and recreating the dynamic perfor- mance style of Presley himself. Familiar West Seattle face Deanne Sposari was there and said, "He puts on such a great show I'd love to see him at Summerfest, if they could handle it. I saw him last year and if he comes again next year I'll be there." Part of the show was a very well stocked classic car show includ- ing vehicles from a wide range of years.
