Hunks of burning love


Fifteen Elvis impersonators bring the magic and song of the King of Rock ’n’ Roll to the downtown Springfield Hilton March 9-10. With thousands of dollars in prize money at stake, the soiree promises to be a weekend of fierce competition and smoking, energetic entertainment. Two special guests spark the festivity’s fire even higher. Hollie Vest is a Tina Turner tribute artist ranked as one of the best in the country. She has appeared internationally on some of your favorite television shows and received dozens of national awards. Irv Cass is the former Elvis Presley Tribute Artist Grand Champion and a crowd favorite who will emcee as well as perform. The two-day event also includes Elvis karaoke, meet-and-greets, and Elvis memorabilia and items for purchase. Buy tickets online at or by phone. Sponsored by WMAY, WNNS, Miller Lite and Springfield Van and Storage Company.
