It all started when I bought a set of Drums as a teenager, Ronnie Tutt who was Elvis Presley’s and later Neil Diamonds drummer was a huge inspiration to me as a budding young musician. I played with many bands and was very much in demand. Drumming was a real passion and I loved playing with Rock n Roll bands. Being a front man or a lead singer never occurred to me as I was very shy
As for real work, I tried my luck at a variety of jobs before joining my father in the building trade at the age of 19. Soon I had my own building firm, employing contractors and working all over the UK. During this time I traveled to the US to visit Las Vegas. It was a dream come true to see where my idol, Elvis Presley, had performed.
During the trip I entered a talent competition and much to my surprise my rendition of Neil Diamond’s, Sweet Caroline, took took me through to the next round. This time I opted for an Elvis Presley rendition of I Just Cant Help Believing, and woah, I found myself amongst the top three! I was surprised when I won the first prize singing The Wonder Of You, another fantastic Elvis song.
Although it was the first time I had sung in public, I was amazed at the response I received. Thanks to this experience I began a career in Entertainment and haven’t looked back since.
Today I am honoured to be respected as an excellent entertainer and impersonator. Offering world class tributes to the incredible Elvis Presley and Neil Diamond, I have performed on local and national television, BBC Radio, London Theatre and cruise ships.
Regularly winning the largest and most prestigious contests in Europe and America for my tribute to Elvis I am fortunate enough to be seen as one of the finest Elvis Tribute artists in the UK.
I am without a doubt a die hard fan of both Elvis Presley and Neil Diamond and will enjoy being able to continue offering great sounding tributes.
