View 297: Canadian Elvis

I did not realize Canada had a thing for The King, Elvis Presley, until my trip last month. My first indication was a corner booth in Jack Astor’s Bar & Grill in Ancaster,  Ontario near Hamilton. Looked almost like a shrine.

Thought the Elvis Booth was interesting. Grabbed a photo of it with an Apple iPhone 5 to show friends and family.

Then, while visiting Niagara Falls, Canada, the next day, I ran into an Elvis impersonator entertaining on stage at the Maid in the Mist Marketplace.

Roy LeBlanc would gladly mug for the camera and even pose with fans for a small tip left in the opened guitar case on stage. He was very good and had Elvis’ mannerisms down with an excellent voice.  He was singing My Way when I took this picture. He did it well but not as well as The King…
