Coming straight from his show in Las Vegas for two shows here in Australian Elvis tribute artists Jason Dale will be hitting the boards in Lismore for the show of a lifetime. He will perform one day of shows here in Lismore to raise funds for the local charity RED Inc, who work with people with disabilities in the region, to support their art program on January 19, 2018.

‘Jason Dale is one of Europe’s top Elvis Tribute Artists; we are absolutely thrilled that he has offered to come to little old Lismore to perform for us to help raise much needed funds for the REDinc. art school. He is an extraordinary performer and looks uncannily like the great man himself!’ said Elvis event coordinator, Josie Donnelly.

‘The funds from this event will go towards the famous REDinc. arts program that has transformed the lives of many local artists with a disability: with many going on to exhibit across Australia and becoming semi-professional artists in their own right. Funds raised from this show will ensure that this program will be ongoing with its usual vigor supporting local artists with a disability.’

There will be two shows taking place at the Lismore workers club the first is an intimate ’68 Comeback Special’from 2.30pm and the main show ‘Viva Las Vegas’ takes off at 6.30pm.
