WAUSAU, Wis., (WSAW)-- They say, impersonation is the finest form of flattery and Friday on Sunrise 7 they delivered with the King of Rock and Roll.

From the hips to the hair, for decades people have been impersonating and performing as Elvis. This weekend a bar in Wisconsin Rapids will host a tribute show.

To tell us all about it, Dakota Pongratz joined the Sunrise 7 show with a short performance.

On Saturday, the Wild Horse Saloon will host a throwback concert with ‘Memories of Elvis.’ The all era show will feature Dakota Pongratz, Davis Beck and Curt Lechner. They will be entertaining you with songs from the early years, the movies and the Vegas comeback!

Pongratz has enjoyed performing as Elvis since he was 14-years-old. When asked about his young start this is what he said.

“I grew up listening to Elvis, my parents also were big fans and would play his music and his movies. My mom would always sing to me and my brother and sister, singers such as Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline and so much more,” explained Pongratz.

‘Memories of Elvis” starts at 7 p.m. in the banquet hall Saturday night. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door and $30 for VIP and are available at Wild Horse Saloon.
