I have been a fan of Elvis Presley for literally as long as I can remember. I have been singing some of his songs in my DJ shows for over 20 years. In April of 2010 I was asked to present a program of Elvis' music to a local nursing home. To make it fun, I put together a makeshift outfit with a low cost wig and glasses purchased from a novelty store. I was supposed to sing 45 minutes, but wound up doing a 90 minute show. As I was packing up equipment, two people asked about booking me to perform for them. That afternoon was the start of this aspect of my entertainment career -
Blue Suede Memories - Tribute To Elvis Presley.
In the show I perform many of the well known Elvis hits (including at least one Gospel tune) as well as a few that as I like to call them, "show who the die hard Elvis fans are". My performance wardrobe ranges from casual "rehearsal attire" to the famous jumpsuits and belts or two piece suits he wore. All backing tracks are professionally produced and include backing vocals as well. Many songs are performed in the arrangement of a live concert, just like Elvis' shows. A typical show runs approximately 75 minutes, in a manner like an Elvis concert did, with a meet and greet afterwards. And just like in Elvis' concerts, scarves are given out to some of the ladies in attendance.
There will only be ONE Elvis Presley and I know that is not me. My show is thoughtfully put together and tastefully performed. It is my tribute to one of the most dynamic entertainers to hit the stage and I perform it with a humble heart and with much love, respect and admiration. For more information on the show, please call or email me!
Available for Birthdays, Anniversaries, Weddings, Grand Openings, Civic Groups, Church Events, Festivals, Private Parties, Night Club Events
