Vic Vaga aka the "VagaBlonde" is an exciting tribute artist whose unbelievably uncanny resemblance to Rod Stewart continues to leave audiences in awe from the moment he takes the stage. With Vic you get it all; the hair, the flair, the nose, the clothes and most importantly the whiskey voice.
Vic can accommodate any client's need whether it be a meet and greet situation, solo performance over concert sounding musical tracks or a full band "Rod Stewart" show experience.
This Blonde truly has more fun showcasing the songs that made Rod famous from the early 70's through the early 90's; from Maggie May to Downtown Train! Vic is definitely the one for your Retro Rod Trip!
My promotion company brought Vic into Alberta for a fundraiser in Trochu, Alberta on March 19, 2016. Our band the Cadillac Kings backed him and what a night it was! Vic delivered hit after hit in true Rod fashion. Any Rod fan who understands what Rod Stewart was like in the 70's will see the incredible performance Vic gave that night for what it was- TRUE Rod Stewart in the 70's!! Great show that was appreciated by the sold out crowd!!
Vic performed at my wedding reception in Las Vegas. He was professional prompt in extremely easy to work with! I had a blast as well as my guests! I think I sang most of the songs right along with him!! I would certainly recommend him. He does a great Rod!!
Vic provided great entertainment and performed the vow renewal for close friends of mine in Staten Island New York. It was great fun and Vic performed sensational renditions of Rod's greatest hits! Thank you for the memories!
Response from Rod Stewart Tribute Artist Vic Vaga:
Thank you Rob. I truly appreciate it! I had a fantastic time and I am glad everyone else did as well. I hope to be in the NY area again soon. Cheers! Vic
If you don't book this man, your missing something very special! We have just returned from celebrating our wedding day in las vegas and we had the pleasure of having Vic perform for us at our reception. From the very first email I sent, he was on hand to make everything so easy for us! He is the ultimate professional and a true gentleman. Not only did he perform, he took time to chat with our guests, posed for as many photos as we wanted and generally was the loveliest person ever! He made our day the most special day ever. Vic, Thank you for everything ♡ Come visit Scotland soon!
Had an all "ROD" themed ceremony at Caesar's Palace on April 30th. Was initially looking to hire an impersonator to sing our wedding song at one of the chapels. Vic contacted me promptly after inquiring via Gig Salad. Once I was made aware he was also an ordained minister, and he could officiate the renewal, I didn't look any further. So happy I didn't! I have been in the hospitality industry my whole life, and can honestly say Vic is one of a kind. He kept in continuous contact in the months after our booking, right up until the day of. He even met me a couple days prior in Las Vegas to make sure we had everything in order. Very professional in all aspects and a very nice man. The ceremony was an absolute blast and was a real surprise for my husband. Mr Vaga looked great, sounded great and was very accommodating of my expectations. If you are looking to get married or renew vows, and are a fan of Rod, like myself, or just have him sing for you......look no further! Book him, you won't be disappointed!!
I hired Vic to perform at my kid's party and everyone loved him. He's a nice guy, a good singer and a great performer.

Our group was celebrating a wedding on Fremont st, when we heard Rod Stewart! I've seen the real Rod a few times. But, this Rod was a blast. It was like being up close and personal with Rod. Taking pictures, dancing and singing along. Good times............
What to Expect
Vic Vaga Rod Stewart tribute shows not only include a great set of classic Rod Stewart hits (circa pre-1990 shows) but also provide all the visual thrills one has come to expect from Rod Stewart ie; soccer balls, extreme Roddy posturing, hair teasing, costume changes, mic stand acrobatics.... If a full band is employed, all musicians provide full concert sound and presentation! On occasion and if requested, appropriately costumed showgirls also adorn the stage!
Vic Vaga is an internationally renowned Rod Stewart lookalike and performer. His live singing show is an exciting and energetic tribute to Rod “the Mod” that has been critically acclaimed many times over for it’s authentic presentation and duplication 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 and commotion wherever he goes whether he is in character or not. All of this coupled with a strong and commanding stage presence, the whiskey voice, microphone stand twirling and soccer ball kicking antics, bright jackets and tight trousers which are all very much needed for a true to life Rod Stewart tribute act complete the package.
What started out as a self inflicted dare to dress as Rod jokingly 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. Through his years of involvement in the entertainment business whether on or off stage and/or playing in 80’s cover bands or classic rock acoustic acts, Vic has always faced the Rod Stewart comparisons. An eventual stint at a celebrity lookalike convention set the wheels further into motion. The experience was so exciting, inspiring and natural that it was only inevitable to pursue this route as a Rod Stewart tribute artist.
Fast forward to the present to where we now find Vic based out of the City of Entertainment-Las Vegas. Vic’s countless appearances and performances in shows like the extremely well received “Superstars on Stage” amongst others 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. Therefore any typical Vic Vaga Rod Stewart tribute show may and/or will include selections from Maggie May to Have I Told You Lately and anything in between!This is not only because of the fact that Vic indeed remarkably resembles Rod circa late 70's/early 80's, but because these works are the exciting and fun ones that defined the icon that IS Rod “the Mod” Stewart.
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!
So get ready because We're Having A Party!

Influences & Inspiration
Any Rod aficionado can only hope to relive the days of when Rod was in the Faces or when he was prancing about during the D'ya Think I'm Sexy days or even when he was conquering early Mtv days circa 1984 and because of this, I have used these periods of Rod's long career as the primary influence for my shows.
