We welcome back nationally recognized, Elvis Tribute Artist, Dwight Icenhower to Stuarts Opera House. Dwight Icenhower was raised in Pomeroy, Ohio and began his Elvis career by singing karaoke at a local fair when he was just 16 years old. Now, he is one of the very few Elvis Tribute Artists that have made a full-time career out of keeping the legend alive. Dwight performs 4-5 shows weekly and he keeps the audiences asking for more. Born four years after the King passed away, Dwight has studied every move that Elvis made and has mastered the 50s, 60s, and 70s eras of Elvis career. He has performed all over the United States as well as in England, Brazil and Mexico and has toured Japan several times. He has had the opportunity to share the stage with some personal friends of Elvis including: DJ Fontana, The Jordanaires, The Sweet Inspirations, Cynthia Pepper, Julie Parrish, Charlie Hodge, and Joe Esposito.

THE LOW ANTHEM

-What goes up must come down, and what goes out must start within-. The band set out to build a recording studio and make a new album with a different sound. It was an ambitious task, and one that took more time than they thought. What came out they called Eyeland, and named the studio in its honor. The old venue soon reopened its closed doors, with the help of the band, and NyTimes sent a reporter to cover the story and now they are here with you.
