About Sal

Biography

Welcome

Finding an Elvis Tribute is relatively easy, but to find one that actually sounds like him is extremely hard and if that is what you’re looking for, then please read on…

My name is Sal a professional singer and Elvis Tribute artist from London UK. Recently I was given an award for most outstanding performance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2008, as part of the InvAsian Festival. I also starred in the BBC’s ‘The Worlds Greatest Elvis’ also in 2008,with host Vernon Kay. I have appeared on BBC’s ‘Test The Nation’ with Anne Robinson and Phillip Schofield (i was selected from over 40 Elvis’ or Elvi!) to sing ‘Hound Dog’ live to over 10 million people!.  My numerous TV appearances include: Channel 5, Sky, CBS, CNN, ITV Yorkshire & Central, and Radio 5 Live. I have also performed in front of 10,000 enthusiastic fans at London City Airport 2004, 50,000 at the annual Slough firework show, and 25,000 at the Barking Indian Mela, both in 2007. In 2004 i performed by Royal Command at The Savoy, The Strand London on behalf of the CTBF (Cinema and Television benevolent Fund) and i have been the subject of numerous newspaper articles and have performed my tribute to Elvis for 13 years.

Here’s a little background information on me.

I first heard Elvis way back in the late 60s with a song called ‘Your time hasn’t come yet baby’.  I was completely won over by his voice, so warm and perfect in every way.  Through the years I collected everything, books, magazines, posters, and videos…the whole lot! My parents at the time didn’t quite agree (understatement!) and terrified them I would end up without a job or profession.  Luckily I managed a fine education and have enjoyed a fantastic career.  Parents pleased….but I wanted to perform too.

In 1997 I was spotted singing in a local bar and a promoter approached me with an offer to start up as an Elvis Tribute act.  At first I politely refused (the thought scared me to death!) but secretly I wanted to say YES!  A few months passed by and I was asked once again, and this time I wasted no time in accepting and performed my first show in East London.  I was shaking with nerves but put on my very first show to a delighted audience in Forest Gate, East London. That was 13years ago and ive never had so much fun as I am now, the public have really been fantastic, and together with the unwavering support from family and friends my shows grow with each performance.

 

It is my belief to carry on Elvis wonderful body of work through a sincere authentic tribute show, whilst leaving audiences in no doubt that my show is heartfelt and dignified, and in no way a gimmick.  Elvis was and always shall remain unique, and while I do dress up in replica suits and costumes he wore, my main strength lies in trying to replicate his magnificent voice. My visually exciting program is designed to recreate the 50’s 60’s and the Vegas years, therefore satisfying the audience on whatever stage of Elvis’ favourite period they like. It is important to generate the sounds of the eras and also the voice Elvis had because it is evident his vocals changed in all 3 eras and I believe it’s vital to do that onstage too-not as easy as it sounds!
My show is basically self contained, and I only use the very best in sound equipment; Shure radio microphones, Mackie speakers, Mackie professional mixers, and not forgetting the very best in backing music conveniently transferred to MP3 files therefore enabling me to pick out one of 500+ songs at a flick of a switch!  Add to this a bit of fancy lighting and let the Rock & Roll begin!

Elvis is gone but the legend lives on,  his music will be around forever and as a tribute artist it is a great honour to perform his classic songs whilst having fun and help keeping the name of the king- Elvis- alive!

Please enjoy my website and I hope to hear from you soon.

Sal.
