Travis LeDoytMaybe the best 50's Elvis impersonator/tribute artist I have seen! He looks a lot like a young Elvis Presley, and sounds very good! Travis was born in 1977 (the same year as me). He performs a historic concert tribute with his band, "Tales From The Heartbreak Hotel", specializing in the 1954-1959 years of Elvis career. I watched a re-creation (as a play act on stage) of the movie "King Creole" starring Travis (on video), and I thought he did an amazing job, sounding, talking, moving and looking like Elvis.
Rio - the Voice of ElvisMy favorite Elvis sound-alike artist (along with Jimmy Ellis)! Rio, from Germany have one of the best Elvis 70's voices in Europe and the world. He has been voted the best Elvis impersonator in Europe, a nd released several CD's, including "Goes Country", "Live" and "The One And Only Day - Christmas". I have all albums mentioned above, and I especially like Rio's version of "If Tomorrow Never Comes" and "Please Come To Boston". My good Internet friend, Jim Vanhollebeke, reviewed 2 of Rio's CD's. You can read the reviews here.
Jimmy EllisJimmy was, and still is, one of my favorite Elvis sound-alikes. I really like the way he sings songs that Elvis never recorded in versions that still sound a lot like Elvis. Please visit my own Jimmy Ellis page for information and links.
Jimmy Ellis - At This Moment (RealAudio)
Tony RoiA great tribute artist and also a great ballad singer. Tony has been in "The Legends In Concert" and also made a couple of TV appearances ("All My Children", "David Letterman" (3 times), "Regis and Kathi Lee", "NBC Today", "Atlantic City On The Move", "CNN International", "Burden Of Proof"-CNN, "Elvis and Me").
To listen to his album "Hand In Hand", you can go to www.amazon.de, just search for "Tony Roy" and click on the album: "Hand in Hand". One of my favorite CD's, great ballads!
Tom GreenGreat voice! Sings everything from Elvis to opera. He does Elvis 1950's, 60's and 70's songs equaly good - sounding more like Elvis than most other singers.
Donny EdwardsDonny Edwards is one of the top Elvis Tribute Artists in the world today! He is able to perform all eras of Elvis's career, 50's, 60's and 70's with remarkable authenticity. His humility, charm and southern manner, coupled with his uncanny sound and appearance, will make you feel as if you are almost watching, the King, himself.
For information, please contact:
Jamie Aaron KelleyGreat Elvis soundalike and tribute artist! He has one of the best Elvis-like voices I have ever heard. He was the first tribute artist to be allowed to perform at the Tupelo Fair in Mississippi. He has released two CD's, "Unfinsihed Business" and "The Sun Also Rises". I have both and I think they are great! Highly recommended! Please check out his web sites listed below for lot's of more information.

Trent CarliniTrent is the star of the hit Las Vegas show "The Dream King," and the winner of the world-wide Tribute Competition to the King of Rock 'n Roll. The competition was held on August 26, 1997 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He's got the whole package: sings like Elvis, moves like Elvis and even looks like Elvis. If you can not see him live, check out his video: "A Dream King Concert", it's great!
Rick SaucedoRick belongs to the top ten Elvis impersonators & tribute artists in the world, along with Trent Carlini and Travis LeDoyt (to name two others).

On Rick's homepage you can read his biography, concert schedule, buy merchandise and listen to some sound samples
Max PellicanoGreat tribute artist! He's got the Elvis look, the moves and he sings very good. He did a very nice version of "I Want You I Need You I Love You" at a concert that I watched on video a while ago.
Scot BruceOriginally from the Pacific Northwest, where he was an air-personality at the top 40 FM radio station Z-FUN 106 and a drummer, Scot has lived in Los Angeles since 1990. While pursuing his career as a musician/actor (and having been a musician and a big Elvis fan all of his life) he started doing a 1950s' era Elvis show as a way to survive the lean times. The result was a surprise to Scot, what was meant as a part-time "gig" to supplement his income blossomed into a full-time career. Because of his uncanny resemblance to the young "King" and his ability to sing, strum a guitar, and swivel his hips, his live show has taken him all over the world to places like Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia (where he had the privilege of performing for the King and Queen), Mainland China, Australia and several countries in Europe and South America. He regularly plays concert dates across the United States. As Elvis, Scot has appeared in music videos with Sheryl Crow, Faith Hill, and Tasmin Archer, as well as on the FOX TV sitcom "Partners." Scot has also been heard as the "Resident Elvis" on the highly rated Los Angeles morning radio show "Mark and Brian" on KLOS FM. Most recently, Scot has appeared in a recurring role on the hit soap opera "Days of Our Lives," a Pizza Hut commercial, and as the lead role in three successful productions of "Idols of the King": the prestigous Barter Theater in Virginia, the Tennessee Repertory Theater in Nashville, and ArtPark in upstate New York. If you saw the "True Hollywood Story: Elvis in Hollywood" on E! Entertainment Network, that was Scot playing Elvis in the recreation scenes. He is also a regular cast member of "A Really Big Shew" the Tribute to the Ed Sullivan Show." Aside from "Being Elvis," Scot has also been seen as a night-club crooner on "The Bold and the Beautiful." Scot is a song-writer, and (whenever possible) performs an acoustic guitar/harmonica solo act in the local pubs, and plays the drums with an LA-based rock-a-billy band. Two of Scot's original songs were used in Riverdance Pictures' 1999 film "On the Turning Away."

Gary Wayne BridgesA great singer that can really sound like Elvis in the 70's. His version of the Elvis song "Help Me" sounds almost exactly as Elvis own version! I also have his wonderful LP "For The Love Of Elvis '88", where I think he sounds like a mix of Elvis (around 74-76) and Rick Nelson (in the 70's and 80's). Great record, which included 10 songs never recorded by Elvis.
I got this new information e-mailed to me (2002): Gary continued performing Elvis into the 1990s. He toured throughout the U.S. and Canada with members of Elvis' original group, including J.D. Sumner, Charlie Hodge, etc. Gary was a pall bearer at J.D.s funeral and is referred to in J.D.s book as the best in the business. Gary went to Nashville to record for Warner records and an accident cut his career short. He is planning a come back of his tribute to Elvis for August of this year (2002). Gary is now a successful producer of themed tribute shows that perform in casinos around the U.S.
GWB - Help Me
Doug ChurchDoug Church - The Voice of Elvis. He began his Elvis career in the United States Air Force in 1983, winning the talent contests held annually by the Air Force, competing against hundreds of other contestants. Since then he have had a fantastic career and won several contests. He has a voice that is so close to Elvis that in some songs (Elvis songs, studio, from the mid 70's) it's hard to hear the difference. Doug belongs to the top ten Elvis tribute artists in the world!

You can also find "Just A Country Boy" at the CD "We All Wanna Sound Like Elvis" (this CD also contains one recording by Ral Donner and one by Vince Everett, and a lot of other artists).

Martin FontaineMartin is a really talented artist from Canada. He was the star of the big hit show "The Elvis Story" for many years.
Jonathon Von BranaStarred as Elvis in "Legends In Concert" in Hawaii, and now has his own show in Hawaii called "Blue Hawaii". More Elvis look-alike than sound-alike. Moves a lot on the stage, which is fun to watch. One of the "coolest" Elvis tribute artists I have seen.
Johnny EarleAn amazing artist! One of the best tribute artists there is. He can really sound like Elvis (Elvis in the 50's and early 60's). He has recorded with The Jordanaires, Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana. He has impressed many with his great voice - including Lisa Marie Presley, who has named him "Mr. Rock n' Roll". He has also toured with the country legend Carl Perkins.
Johnny Earle - Anyway You Want Me (RealAudio)
Sivle Nora"Sivle Nora caused many people to wonder if indeed Elvis was still alive. The appearance of Sivle helped ease some of the grief that Elvis fans suffered and by the same token it took people's minds off the negative stories being written about Elvis. I would like to think that in some small way the legacy of Elvis Presley was extended in a very positive way by Sivle Nora." The nice words above was said by Mr. Steve Chanzes. The name "Sivle Nora" was taken from a book named "Elvis Where Are You?" written by Steve. Some people say Sivle's real name is David Darlock, others say it's not. Sivle chosed to keep his real name a secret. Steve produced and released the album "Sivle Sings Again" in the early 80's (1981, I think). These recordings are today very hard to find.
Sivle Nora - Loving You (RealAudio)
Sivle Nora - Are you Lonesome Tonight? (RealAudio)
Ronnie McDowellRonnie is not really an Elvis impersonator, he can "impersonate" his voice so that he sounds like the young Elvis (50's and 60's), but he does not dress like Elvis or tries to move like him. Ronnie has several talents. He is a performer, songwriter, sculptor, sign painter, animation artist, watercolor artist, and caricature artist, as well as a musical creator and a talent manager. You can listen to sound-clips at his official homepage (the first link below) or at www.cdnow.com.

He has also released several singles with own material in the seventies and eighties.
Today Robert is still writing songs and performing his “International Tribute To Elvis”. He has added another very popular show called, “Showcase of Stars”. It is a one man legends show where he performs tributes to Elvis, Engelbert, Conway Twitty, Neil Diamond & others.

Tommy RiversGreat Elvis and Orbinson soundalike. Talented singer (great voice!), guitarist and song writer. At the links below you can read more about Tommy, and check out his awesome CD "Night".
Eddie MilesEddie is one of the best Elvis tribute artists/impersonators there is. Gordon Stroker from the Jordanaires, Charlie Hodge (Elvis friend and bandmember) and JD Sumner are a couple of persons that think highly of Eddie. Since they all have worked with Elvis, they know what the are talking about.
He sings like Elvis (even though his voice is a little different from the King), he moves like the Elvis and he even looks a little like Elvis (the older Elvis from about 1970-73).

Rhythm 55A really good rock-a-billy band with a great 50's sound. My favourite songs from their album named "Rhythm 55" is "Letter Full Of Tears" and "Sweet Sour Melody". They also do a nice version of the Elvis song "Milkcow Blues Boogie".
Jerry PresleyComments coming later...
Helmut LottiHelmut is not an Elvis impersonator, he is not even a tribute artist. But he is a fantastic singer that can sing all from classic music to rock, and from African music to Elvis. His CD "Romantic" features the Elvis songs: "Hurt" and "Heart of Rome", which is done with a lot of feeling. I think he sings with the same passion as Elvis and does a lot of songs that Elvis would have liked, I'm sure.
Henrik ÅbergHenrik was the winner of the swedish impersonator contest "Sikta mot stjärnorna" in 1995. He won as Elvis with a great version of "Blue Hawaii". Henrik also appeared, for a very short while, under the name "Vince Vernon Vardel". Vince was a masked singer like Orion (Jimmy Ellis), and like Orion he has a voice incredible similar to Elvis Presley. His voice has developed and he is even better nowdays, check out the YouTube videos of him singing "Amazing Grace" for example.
Dan WillisDan or Daniel Willis sounds like a mix of PJ Proby and Jimmy "Orion" Ellis to me. He has a nice soft voice. A LP called "Spelling On The Stone" was releases in 1988 with no artist name. Later it bacame known that Dan was the singer on that LP. Another great LP by him is "Love Songs Of Your Life" (I believe it was released before "Spelling On The Stone").
I have not been able to reach Dan Willis or the producer of his recordings. So, if you read this and don't want the sound sample here, let me know and I'll remove it.
Dan Willis - Resurrection (RealAudio)

Dwight IcenhowerDwight Icenhower was raised in Pomeroy, Ohio and began his Elvis career by singing karaoke at a local fair when he was just 16 years old. Now, he is one of the very few Elvis Tribute Artists that have made a full-time career out of keeping the legend alive.
He's had the opportunity to share the stage with some of Elvis musicians: DJ Fontana, The Jordanaires, The Sweet Inspirations, and Charlie Hodge.
Larry SethLarry is known from the hit "The Big El Show" in the 70's. He's now retired from the Elvis business since many years. In 1977 he released the LP "In Concert", and in 1978 another LP, "Viva Las Vegas". I also have all (3) 45 rpm records released by him, including "Alabama Girl/I Love You Because" (not the Elvis tune). Larry was also known for looking like Elvis (the 70's Elvis) and sounding like Elvis (live in the 70's). Speaking of the last part: sounding like Elvis, I would recommend the "Viva Las Vegas" LP. It's really good. His first LP, "In Concert", had not the same standard though.
Danny VernonDanny began his career playing country music. He is also a very talanted Elvis tribute artist. He won 3rd place in the "World's finest Elvis impersonator" Extravaganza contest in Las Vegas January 5, 2003. He also recently took 1st place in Penticton B.C's Elvis Festival Contest 2002!.

There's very little information about Vince, so if you have any information you want to share, feel free to e-mail me.
Terry StaffordTerry is (was) no impersonator, he had a couple of own hits in the 1960's like I'll Touch A Star and he had a voice close to Elvis. If I should put him in a category related to Elvis we could call him a Elvis sound-alike. You can hear sound samples at: www.amazon.com. Just search for "Terry Stafford".

He is best known for his portrayal of the 1950's Elvis. His site has a biography, pics and sound samples.

Quote from his web site: "In 1984 Joe participated in a singing contest at the National Elvis Presley Rock Fan Club in Recanati, Italy, winning first prize as the best Elvis voice resemblance in Italy." Another quote: "During his shows, Joe alternates his own songs with Elvis’s and his public always shows great enthusiasm and appreciation for both. He is quickly becoming the artist who resembles the King most “On Stage” in Italy!". I think he's got a great voice! Please check out his web site for info. and sound clips.
AndyAndy (Atty Buitenhuis) is a very talented singer from the Netherlands. I have two of his CD's, and I think that he has a fantastic voice that sometimes remind me of Elvis. The first CD I got by Andy was "Memories", which was a tribute to another very popular dutch singer: Jack Jersey. Andy sounded just like Jack! The other CD I have by Andy is his latest (when writing this Feb. 2004), "The White Andy". It features some older covers and a lot of really great new written music. If you like artists like Jack Jersey, Terry Lee, Ral Donner, P.J. Proby or Elvis, I'm sure you'll like Andy too. Feel free to check out my fan web site for Andy (link below) for bio, pics and audio clips.

He sounds like a mix of Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and Marty Robbins, which are also his musical idols along with The Mavericks and other country and rock n' roll artists. I have his CD "Mike Lorentz & The Rockin' Devils", which I think is great. He has also done a CD with Elvis gospel songs (which I also have). On his gospel CD you can really hear his natural Elvis-like voice! Both CD's are available from Rarity Records in Holland.

Charles Alan Rowe (a.k.a. Nuelvis)As a collector of Elvis soundalike recordings, I'm happy to own the 45 rpm vinyl single "You Know Me/Dance All Night" on ANA-records (songs written by Gene Cash). "You Know Me" is a song about Elvis, sung in great Elvis 70's style. Charles recorded that song under the name Nuelvis. He also did live Elvis tribute shows under that name. Nowdays he perform Elvis shows under the name Elvis Lee Jones. Under his real name, Charles Alan Rowe, he is a Country music recording artist. Charles latest Country CD is called "God, Family, Sex & Texas" and it also contains an updated version of "You Know Me".

Kent Lundberg & One Way BrothersI went to see Kent Lundberg & One Way Brothers in Karlskoga, Sweden (21 Feb. 2004) and was very impressed by his show. Kent was not dressed up as Elvis, but hearing Kent Lundberg & One Way Brothers was like hearing Elvis performing with JD Sumner & The Stamps (or Jordanaires, but hearing their bass singer, I'd like to compare them with The Stamps...). One Way Brothers is probably the only real gospel quartet in Sweden (started out in the 70's). Even though the only gospel music I have listened to is the gospel songs Elvis has done together with The Jordanaires, The Imperials and The Stamps, I think One Way Brothers probably belongs to the best gospel quartets here in Europe. I really recommend seeing Kent Lundberg & One Way Brothers live!

Richie SantaRichie Santa is a singer living in Staten Island, New York. Ever since the age of eight when he first saw Elvis in a movie the King has been Richie’s favorite singer. His influence from an early age has moved him into a career as an entertainer. Being a professional singer for over twenty years Richie has sung many songs by many artists, but no artist gives him as much pleasure as singing songs by the King of Rock-n Roll. The band that he sings with now is called Current Affair. Being the lead singer since joining the band eleven years ago Richie has done over 1000 shows. Recently adding the title of tribute band is something they can now offer their clients. Focusing on the Vegas years happens to be Richie’s favorite part of Elvis’s career. Being the same height and weight as Elvis in his prime makes the Current Affair show “A TRIBUTE TO THE KING” a more realistic and believable experience. With arrangements being true to the originals, each song is played with conviction. Then add the power of Richie’s voice along with his stage persona and the transformation is complete. Richie captures the essence of this great artist with authentic costumes and all the accessories that one would expect when watching a tribute show. There will never be another Elvis Presley, so it is with great respect and appreciation as a fan that Richie portrays this man that has given the world so much.
Antoniu PetrescuAntoniu is a talented singer and Elvis tribute artist from Italy.
"...I have collaborated with different artists of various origins enriching, in this way, my musical culture. My source of inspiration was undoubtedly the figure of Elvis Presley, the unquestioned king of rock 'n' roll that influenced the music and the artists from half a century ago to today. I play the guitar and the piano, even if I am known as a singer of Gospel music. I achieved a degree in Theology at the Papal College Leoniano (Anagni), together with the University Teresianum of Rome, with the specialization of Pastoral Ecclesiology. I am also a consultant of the Social Communication Office of the dioceses of Avezzano and I am currently a minister in the Cathedral of Avezzano..."

Ray Hastings (RayElvis)I'm from San Antonio, Tx. I've been an ETA for 8 yrs, and have been singing since I was 5 years old. Elvis has always been an inspiration and an influence in my life. The music is the most important thing when it comes to entertaining people. To see the smiles on their faces is the most gratifying thing to me. I can see it in their eyes when they have those fond memories of the music of Elvis Presley. Music is and will always be a part of my life in one way or another. It is a passion and a dream that I am very pleased to say that I am a part of. I am honored to be one of the many thousands of ETA's in this country. I truly respect any artist that can express his or herself through music.
