Entertainer and Michael Buble impersonator Scott Keo performed in Bashaw on May 28.

Around 70 people crowded into Bashaw's Majestic Theatre on May 28 for some Michael Buble-inspired entertainment.

Performing was Phoenix, Ariz., singer Scott Keo with his "jaw-dropping ability to duplicate the look, style, and sound" of the Canadian crooner according to publicist Merv Buchanan.

Always musical at heart, Keo performed solo and as a band member doing vocals, guitar and drums over the years but found little success.

Eventually, Keo took his broad knowledge of music to the wedding scene and became a wedding DJ in 2002. In time, he earned a positive reputation around the Phoenix area.

First exposed to Buble's music in 2005, Keo determined that he needed to learn everything he could about the singer and began introducing his own spin to the Canadian's songs.

For the Bashaw concert, Keo performed two sets with an intermission between them.

In the first set, he played a variety of Buble's well-known songs like "World on a String," "Feeling Good" and "Save the Last Dance for Me."

Keo also played four songs from Las Vegas' Rat Pack era, covering four Frank Sinatra songs.

After the 20-minute intermission, Keo returned with 11 more songs including "Papa Loves Mambo" and "Mack the Knife."

In between songs, Keo entertained the crowd with his trademark humour. 

A cash bar was open before the concert and during the intermission.

The Majestic Theatre will pause its tribute nights for June before returning in July with a tribute to the King, Elvis Presley, on July 16.
