I have been a fan of Elvis Presley ever since watching Jailhouse Rock as a kid. I was amazed by his looks, charisma and fantastic voice. After winning a competition singing an Elvis song judged by the North West of Englands biggest radio station Key 103, I decided to become a professional Elvis Tribute Artist in 2012.
In 2013 I entered the European Elvis Championships singing as GI Elvis and made the finals. In 2014 I entered the competition again and made the finals with the recreation of the 68 Comeback Special performance.
Later in July 2014 I entered Europes Tribute to Elvis and was voted into the top sixteen judged by Elvis's bodygaurd Sam Thompson, Elvis's tour manager Charles Stone, Elvis's co star Cythia Pepper from the movie Kissin Cousins and Suzie Quatro.
In 2015 I made the top ten in the finals of the European Elvis Championships as 70s Elvis. I have been invited to tour with Elvis's favourite Gospel group The Blackwoods and I am now regarded as one of Europes best, most versatile Elvis Tribute Artists.
I have a large collection of the worlds most authentic costumes from every Elvis era including an original American Army Green Uniform from 1958 the year Elvis was drafted into the army. I use the worlds premier costume company B & K Enterprises who are officially endorsed by Elvis's costume designers Bill Belew and Gene Doucette, to make his many jumpsuits, costumes and jewelry.
I have props that include a 57 tooled leather cover for my Gibson J-200 guitar, replicas of guitars Elvis used in the movies That's's The Way It Is and Elvis on Tour. I also own an original Red Viking Hagstrom guitar for his 68 Comeback show, complete with the guitar strap that was made from the same material as the original strap worn by Elvis in the 68 Comeback Show.
I use the most authentic backing tracks from Golden Voice, Kings Tracks and Just Awesome Karaoke for smaller shows, all including fantastic sound and lighting.With the looks, voice, charisma and attention to detail.
