Vic Vaga, an internationally renowned Rod Stewart lookalike and performer, is coming to the Valemount Legion May 12th. His live singing show is an exciting tribute to Rod “the Mod” critically acclaimed many times over for its authentic presentation of a true Rod concert. Vic’s uncanny similarity to Rod alone leaves audiences awestruck from the moment he walks on stage. He draws immediate attention wherever he goes whether he is in character or not. A strong and commanding stage presence, the whiskey voice, microphone stand twirling and soccer ball kicking antics, bright jackets and tight trousers – Vic knows how to kick off a true to life Rod Stewart tribute act.

What started out as a dare to dress as Rod Stewart one Halloween night led to a yearly ritual of winning Halloween costume contests where he was eventually “discovered” by a celebrity lookalike agent in his hometown of San Antonio, Texas. During Vic’s involvement on or off stage and/or playing in 80’s cover bands or classic rock acoustic acts, he has always faced the Rod Stewart comparisons. An eventual stint at a celebrity lookalike convention set the wheels further into motion, and he now resides in Las Vegas.

Vic’s countless performances in shows like the “Superstars on Stage” have contributed to what is now a very polished and anticipated act. Those who see a Vic Vaga show can expect to experience a fantastic trip down memory lane. A typical Vic Vaga Rod Stewart tribute show includes selections from Maggie May to Have I Told You Lately and anything in between!

Vic’s latest venture is now also one of being an ordained minister who is able to and will legally marry and renew wedding vows for couples. He is the only “Rod Stewart” impersonator who can fulfill this need!

The show at the Valemount Legion begins at 7:30 pm.
