When Elvis came on the scene the world of music changed forever. If there was any performer who could cross both musical and cultural divides – and do it effortlessly – it’s was Elvis Presley.
Elvis was able to tap into a source of power that was, and still is, of an enduring nature. As an Elvis Tribute Artist it is my job to render the very best nuances that made Elvis so popular, then recreate them today – in this era – for fans who are there to remember the greatest artist whoever breathed. It is the inspiration of Elvis that truly puts all Elvis Tribute Artists to the test.
Gabe love of Elvis began at 7 years of age when his grandfather gave him a collection of early Elvis recordings. He started performing and testing his talent on unsuspecting friends and family. The feedback was surprisingly positive, so he gradually worked his way through the musical omnibus of Elvis’ career.Over a decade later and Gabe is still singing Elvis, but this time the sound is more resonant, more varied, and much richer. The years of listening paid off!
Gabe knows one thing is for sure and that is to never underestimate an Elvis Presley fan! Most of them have a staggering memory – they know every move; every twitch; every roll of the shoulder; every celluloid- smouldering glance.
So if you don’t get it right – if you don’t get close to that “Elvis- in-the-flesh feel” – then the audience will notice. Gabe has done his homework and his performance brings you as close to the real thing as you are ever going to get.
