Who is the one entertainer a rockabilly festival could not do without?
Elvis might be dead but his spirit lives on in impersonator Andrew Portelli.
He has been impersonating The King for 22 years since he won a radio competition that sent him straight to Gracelands.
After watching the numerous impersonators overseas, Mr Portelli brought his first show to Melbourne.
More than two decades later, Mr Portelli is still dancing in his blue suede shoes.
“Elvis was very versatile on stage,” Mr Portelli said.
“I tried to do a Roy Orbison tribute show but just couldn’t do it because Roy barely moved.
Mr Portelli will bring his energetic performance to Wagga as part of the Bonnie and Clyde Rods, Rats and Rides Festival this weekend.
He will adorn Elvis’s famous white jumpsuit while he performs some of his biggest hits from the 1970s.
Festival organiser Les Adams said the event is a trip down memory lane to the cars, fashion and music of the pre-1978 era.
Wagga car enthusiasts are encouraged to enter their own vehicle by presenting it at the registration office.
The festival will be open from 9am to 11pm Saturday and 9am to 4.30pm Sunday at the Wagga Showgrounds.
There will be live music, including the Elvis tribute show, on Saturday night.
Tickets are $20 for adults and children under 15 are free.
