HAWLEY, PA — The Wayne Memorial Hospital Auxiliary will sponsor a concert by Elvis Presley tribute artist Shawn Klush on Sunday, September 7 at the Woodloch Pines nightclub. Tickets go on sale June 1.

Born and raised in Pittston, Klush’s love for music led him to begin imitating his musical idol, Elvis Presley. Klush was named the “Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist” by Elvis Presley Enterprises when he competed in Memphis against contestants from around the world. He also was named, “The World’s Greatest Elvis,” in the British Broadcasting Company’s worldwide search for the best Elvis tribute artist.

Each January, Klush stars in the “Elvis Birthday Tribute Tour,” with Elvis’ own musicians, singers and friends in multiple cities. He recently sold out a 15-city tour of Australia and had record-breaking performances in the U.S., Switzerland, Canada, the United Kingdom and South America. In 2013, Klush was a featured performer on the “Late Show with David Letterman.”

Tickets cost $35. Call Katy Wood at 570/253-5779, Joan Buehl at 570/226-9750, or Lonnie Forget at 570/253-0637. Proceeds will benefit Wayne Memorial Hospital.
