Crowd pleaser

Morinville was the first stop in Canada for Rod Stewart tribute artist Vic Vaga who performed a concert at the Morinville Community Cultural Centre Thursday night. The show opener was Rann Berry and the One Hit Wonders, and the band Cadillac Kings. More than 130 attended the performance. Trudy Taphorn with TCB Legends said the event was Vaga’s first performance in Canada and his first time visiting the country. “With Vic, you get the whole experience,” she said. “The hair, the flair, the nose, and clothes and the whiskey voice. Vic is the best Rod Stewart artist.”
