Karen Hester as Dolly Parton
Karen Hester was born in Norfolk, VA. Her love for music started at an early age, and continued through her life evident in her family and friends. Almost her entire family has some sort of musical talent! When Karen performs, you can feel her love for music and appreciate the fact that her vocals are as soothing as the "Smoky Mountain Songbird" herself! Karen’s professional theater experience includes performing at House of Blues, The Palace Theater, 2001 Entertainment Complex , Celebration Music Theater, Blue Ridge Dinner Theater, Penns Peak and Legends in Concert. She has performed for several venues including business functions, church events, corporate conventions, casinos, and several charity events. She recently performed LIVE on AXS TV’s show, “World’s Greatest Tribute Bands” in Hollywood, CA. She travels throughout the U.S. and worldwide with performances in Sweden, Finland, Australia and aboard the Country Music Cruise sailing the Caribbean. Be prepared for an entertaining gal with a heart of gold that will keep you smiling and eager for more!
Mark Hinds as Kenny Rogers
Mark Hinds has been performing as a Kenny Rogers impersonator for the past 33 years getting his start in Northern Michigan and perfecting his craft. He was discovered by Legends in Concert in Las Vegas and auditioned for their extremely popular Impersonator Show. Mark was signed immediately and spent the next 22 years performing in various Legends venues including Las Vegas, Branson, Atlantic City, and Myrtle Beach.
Mark and Kenny became friends early after Kenny saw Mark at one of Kenny’s concerts and called him on stage. A few years later they performed together at The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville as part of The Funny Business Show. Kenny later came to Las Vegas and took Mark’s place in the Legends Show impersonating “himself”, something that has NEVER been done before or since…a great tribute to Mark in itself.
Performing all over the World, Mark has entertained people in Australia, Japan and Singapore and most recently South Africa. Mark’s “country” good looks and “velvety throaty” style has made him a favorite in the business and is rated one of the top impersonators in the world.
