I saw Elvis in person at the Florida Theatre in 1958. Fabulous! The Judge was on the front row to make sure he didn't wiggle too much! emoticon

Finally got to see the Ultimate Justin Shandor since missing out when he was the featured artist in Parkes in 2015.

Justin's voice is fabulous, both as himself and as Elvis. Check him out on smule.com by searching for justinkshandor as my favourite is his version of Thinking Out Loud (while sitting in his parked car). He has come a long way since appearing in USA Today at age 17.

The Colonel did good things for Elvis, but he held him back as well. I always wished Elvis could have traveled to Europe and personally shared his talent with the world (not that he REALLY needed to, as it turned out).

Beachwalker,

The Colonel had a gambling problem, and in order to get him out of trouble with the
Vegas bookies, he did a lot of stuff (movies) he would not have done otherwise.
Just like he wanted to tour in Europe and Australia and the colonel would not let him
go, because he was a wanted man in Europe and he knew they would arrest him if
he went over and he did not want Elvis out from under his thumb........

I missed out on seeing the Sydney Ultimate ETA contest on Mar 2-4 due to dealing with my massive move from the apt I have rented.

Hey Abby, did you know it was Paul Fenech who won? Thought you might like to tell your brother and his wife. Very fitting as Paul told me a week earlier that it would probably be the last shot at going to Memphis as he and his wife are concentrating on their new house and booming Elvis Pizza business.

It is all sad....sometimes I can't even listen to his music just thinking of how tragic his life was at the end. But, I love his movies-kind of ironic how he hated his movies-he fought being in them and had to because of the contracts he signed. I think the Colonel forced him too. Such a nice man turned into something he didn't like at the end. Breaks my heart. emoticon
It reminds me of what happened to Michael Jackson. Dr's feeding these rich, famous celebs drugs just to keep going and kills them in the end.
That is what is nice about the ETA's gives us something to enjoy and see Elvis' memory live on in a good way! emoticon

I saw that tape, and I think a lot of it was edited...where he was clowning around
they edited to make it look like he was dopey.
As for the sweating, when you work under those spotlights, and are packing extra
weight, it is miserably hot. E nearly dehydrated every concert he did.

How did he seem? You said he was awesome. His last concert that was televised showed him messing up on songs, really overweight, sweating really badly...was he like that when you saw him? Maybe he didn't get like that until closer to his death....

ScooterGirl,
I checked Donny out and he's pretty good.
A couple of years ago, I was on a cruise and Sean O'Shea was one of the entertainers. He does Elvis, Tom Jones and a few others. He's really great!!! He's a friend of mine on FB and I love to follow him around. I know he has a website but I can't remember it right now.

Hi ladies,

For those not lucky enough to have seen The King, and/or If you've seen Elvis performers, who are your favourites and why?

Have to admit that my current favourite ETA, www.donnyedwardslive.com/ , looks, sounds, moves close enough to what I imagine the real Elvis to be. I'm so excited that on Nov 27, we will be seeing Donny Edwards perform his Vegas act for the first time in Oz.

However it's Donny's ability to make time and chat to his fans that won me over. He remembered meeting me a whole year previously and told me he still keeps my ring in his jewellry box on his dresser. This ability to thank fans on a personal level is the same reason that I have been seeing a lot of some Australian ETAs, in particular John Elvis Collins (who is a wedding celebrant and has the nicest marriage himself) and Paul Fenech (owner of Elvis Pizza) and Dean Vegas (my first Australian ETA) especially when they are supporting charity events. Donny, Paul and Dean are currently performing on the Rock the Boat cruise together.
www.rocktheboatcruise.com.au/
2011/Elvi
s%20Rocks%20the%20Boat.html


Now that the Elvis Presley Enterprises runs the official Ultimate ETA competition, I have the impression that the very serious performers consider themselves ETAs. After I met and was wowed by Jacqueline Feilich, I realised that I am missing out on much more magic if I rule out those who did not look or sound like Elvis. Jacqueline likes doing the more bluesy songs so she'll sing my favorites that I don't often hear from others. You can decide for yourself:

www.aolnews.com/2011/04/21/br
eaking-th
e-blue-suede-glass-ceiling-fe
male-
elvis-impersonator/


Connie, visit us in Oz. If Elvis Pizza is having an event, you can often meet, watch and socialise with 2-4 ETAs during the night. Some may be beginners and others more seasoned, while Paul won the 2010 Australian heat of the Ultimate ETA contest. I support that they all want to spread the magic of the real Elvis. I will come with you!

I didn't know there was a difference-ETA or EI. Always thought they all tried to look like him somewhat. But, now I know why some don't-it is just a tribute not a look a like or sound a like. I would rather see the ones that look and sound like him. Make the experience more real, I guess. I have never seen one, guess I just never had the desire to. But, now after seeing all the ones out there that are so good at it-wouldn't mind seeing one or two! emoticon

Thanks. Good to know.

Previously, I refused to see folks who dressed as Elvis and tried to copy his work. I've gotten better though (as I age...lol). I know he can't be duplicated but I understand that 'artists' TRY to recapture what the King was all about.

Hey Bonny, an ETA is an Elvis Tribute Artist. From what I have seen and read, ETAs generally aim to give their audience the essence and passion of Elvis, rather than impersonate or look exactly like Elvis. What do others think is the difference between ETAs and Elvis impersonators?

Dumb question here! What is an ETA?

Did I mention I have a stand-up Elvis behind my headboard? It was given to me when I turned 60 so where should I put it???? I turned my bed catty-cornered and found the perfect place. He watches over me every night as I sleep. mmmmmmmmmmm

That is toooo cool Darlene! What was it like?
I still get sad when I hear some songs of his-- Especially the slow ones.
I would love to see an ETA! I found out a man who sings in a band we see off and on used to be one. I want to go up and ask him to sing an Elvis song and find out why he doesn't do it anymore. He has a fantastic voice!

Hi Connie,

Yes, an ETA.. the one in my picture. That picture was taken on my birthday a few years ago. My family loves ETAs as they are so much fun. I don't think my little ones really understand the concept - Kerensa (aged 4) said that the best singer in the world is Elvis, but she's only heard his music sung by ETAs.

My mom loved Elvis too... when I hear some of the slower songs, it makes me sad at the moment so I have to listen to the up-beat songs.

Have a great week Elvis Fans!

Hi Connie! My dad had brought back some great music from Elvis, and I use the mini trampoline and listen to Elvis while jumping on the trampoline and thinking of my dad too, who also has passed away. But it makes me feel really close to both of them. emoticon

How disappointing and sad Gayllynne!

Darlene-did you see him like Abi said?

Bonnie that is awesome!

Abi- Are you talking an ETA?

Patti- That is awesome your Dad saw him! Sad you didn't get to!

I wish I had- I was soooooo crazy about him when I was a kid! I was only 18 when I got married and he died when I was 21- I would have saved to see him for sure if he had lived. My parents never went to concerts-couldn't afford it! Thanks for your answers everyone!! emoticon

I was finally able to score tickets to a concert at the Nassau Coliseum. I was so excited because I pulled every string I knew and called in tons of favors (I was working at HBO at the time). The week I was going to see him he died. I was doubly heartbroken. I never got the chance. :(

Connie,
I was lucky to see Elvis twice...wish I coulda seen him more, but I'm very happy to have been in his audience those times. I took my 6 year old the year before he died.

My dad did Connie, in Las Vegas. It was one of his last concerts. My brother had lived out there and I couldn't go because I was really ill at the time. Was so upset I couldn't go. But he really rocked it!! Woo Hoo! emoticon

Today..................at

Riders Harley Davidson
Trussville, Alabama

I was sitting in the lounge waiting for my bike and looked over in the counter where they
put signs for coming rides and stuff, and lo and behold, there he was. A travel brochure
for Graceland/Memphis with his face right there on the front....this was easily noticable
because it was in a stand-up display.

Penticton! I saw lots of Elvi in the 10th Pacific North West Elvis Festival this weekend.

The winner of the professional competition, who now goes to the Ultimate Competition in August in Memphis was Mark Anthony from Adelaide, Australia. He was an excellent ETA.

Unfortunately two of my favourites, Eli (can't remember his second name) and Darren Lea (who we are going to see in a couple of weeks) made mistakes that cost them a place in the finals.

Eli used a prop and Darren walked off the stage and into the crowd during one of their competition songs. Unfortunately that meant that their scores for that song were zero, meaning that they lost a finals place.

There were some great local guys in both the amateur and professional competitions. I hope that you all get to go to an Elvis festival this year! It was great fun.

Thank you. Thank you very much.
