Why You Should Attend This Elvis Tribute

By Jerry Sullivan

The repercussions of the King of Rock n Rolls legacy send ripples right up to this present day. So much that even millennial born tykes find him familiar, and for hundreds of thousands of others, he is an undisputed household name. For fond or comedic remembrances of this universal cultural icon, see about this bay area Elvis tribute.

Impressions and impersonations are fun courses in entertainment. They are a way to relive memories and give tribute to just about any deserving cultural icon. There is no more fitting embodiment of the Classic than the King in all his masculine charms, clean cut looks, deep balladic voice, and well styled pompadour. Everything from his greatness to his follies is continually being excellently role played and fondly remembered.

While entertainers usually impersonate for making fun of a famous figures personal life, involved scandals, and eccentric behavior, not much can really be scooped about Elvis Presley. Of course, you can have your juicy implications and gossips peppered throughout the show but commonly, impersonations in this line are usually for tribute concerts and some such. Impersonators have thoroughly mastered his looks, mannerisms, and voice fidelity, that seeing them in concert is really or almost like seeing the real thing embodied.

The challenge is actually quite great in this enterprise. The performers are embodying Classics, but for things to remain fun into the long run, especially for loyal audiences and customers, they have to have an element of spontaneity, and well able to incorporate fresh material. Therefore, they also have to be versatile and skilled in developing an ever increasing repertoire of impressions, which is no mean feat.

The proliferation of mimes has not diluted or trivialized this phenomenon in any way. In fact, there is quite a handful that are so good that you might think the Kings passing was just some hushed up conspiracy theory. They are Elvis Embodied, Reincarnated, or really Himself. If you are a professed number one fan, see to that tribute gathering above, and for future reference, keep some details for your own use later on.

There are supposedly more Elvis impersonators in the whole world, more than any other celebrity. Therefore, this enterprise is not exactly novel and newfangled. After all, it is far from being unheard of. However, those who can truly embody the Kings true essence, with all the trappings of looks and sounds, are really few and far between.

In this hyper Information Age, nearly just about anyone can get to the level of Phenomenal with extreme practice and patience. Therefore, incredible talents are not really few and far between. That is why its important to glean as wide a repertoire as possible if one is hoping to make it far in this field. Aside from the looks and the voice, an actor should also have a facility for impressions.

But can you imagine the embarrassment if the act you hire is a bit off and perhaps a bit corny. Nothing is as awkward as complete silence during a comedy show, all waiting with bated breath for a less hackneyed or cheesy punch line. Therefore, before you get around to commissioning artists, make sure they are not CON artists. As it is, you get people whereabouts who are sadly disillusioned. Of course, that is no fault of their own, but if you make the tragic misstep of hiring them, then all the blame will trickle down on you and all the perceptions will be reflected back on you, as someone who is corny, unfunny, and sadly out of step with the times. But if you manage to put together a resoundingly successful show, now thats something else.

The rock n roll pioneer is indeed a force to be reckoned with. His image, name, and voice are quintessentially and immediately recognizable the whole world over. From music to clothes, he has been a great cultural force, and many years dating from his mortality, his spirit and legacy remain, indisputably, deathless.
