Columbia's "elvis" Rules At Lincoln Jamboree
This article first appeared in issue 34, and was written by Linda Waggener.
Most Adair Countians with any age on them are aware of the Hodgenville theater called The Lincoln Jamboree and its long-time m.c./owner, Joel Ray Sprowles, who loves to promote Kentucky talent.
Columbia's Aaron Texter won first place from a pool of twenty performers in a talent show there on March 24 with his trademark "Memories of Elvis" songs.
Texter is a regular performer at the Dream Depot and also with Standing Room Only productions in Columbia. In addition to Elvis songs, he does songs of Conway Twitty, Rick Nelson, Marty Robbins and Roy Orbison. He was approached by two tour consultants at the Jamboree and hopes efforts like that will bring more people to Columbia in support of all the rich, local talent he sees here.
His next performance in town will be at the Dream Depot the first weekend in May where he'll perform in "Legends" with a mix of many of the artists listed above.
Texter is married to Westlake Nurse Practitioner Connie Texter, who works at Edmonton Primary Care, and they live just outside of Columbia.
For more information on upcoming live, local entertainment, call the Depot numbers in the ad at right, or call Texter at his cell number, 270-250-3609.
