The King lives on in Manny Triana...
You may have to do a double take when you see Manny Triana as Elvis Presley. And when you hear him sing, you will swear that he is just lip-syncing along to the King's greatest hits. Manny has the look, the voice, and the moves that will thrill audiences of all ages and convince even the most discriminating fans that Elvis is indeed alive and well, and singing just for them.
Like Elvis, Manny Triana was born into humble circumstances. As a boy growing up in Cuba, he didn't have access to the music that we listen to in the United States. When he came to this country in 1979, his parents bought him his first Elvis Presley record. As "Jailhouse Rock" began to play, Manny had the same reaction as those who heard Dewey Phillips first play Elvis' debut record "That's All Right" on the radio in 1954. He had never heard anything or anyone like Elvis before. He was hooked.
Since the age of ten, Manny has studied and emulated the King's vocal style and mannerisms. Before every show, he sits in a room surrounded by Elvis memorabilia, watches the documentary "Elvis: That's the Way It Is", and begins the transformation from High School Administrator to The King of Rock and Roll. He talks like Elvis, walks like Elvis, sings like Elvis, and laughs like Elvis. Until the last girl is kissed, the last scarf is given, and "It's Now or Never" is still lingering in the air, Manny Triana is Elvis Presley.
When asked how it feels to be on stage as the King, Manny often refers to something Elvis once said: "I'm not the King. Jesus Christ is the King. I'm just an entertainer." In true Elvis fashion, Manny Triana is humble about how he affects people during his performances. He is truly honored to bring Elvis alive, to take them back to a time when music was redefined, and to let them experience the magic that is Elvis Presley.
Every performance by Manny Triana promises audiences authentic vocals, genuine Elvis mannerisms, and non-stop hits interspersed with King-style humor. His crowd-pleasing, interactive, and family friendly show guarantees to give chills, thrills, and to convert any non-believer into a true Elvis fan. Be sure to hang around after the show, where you can have your picture taken with The King of Rock and Roll.
Elvis gave the world a whole new perspective on Rock and Roll. Manny Triana will give you a whole new perspective on Elvis, leave you "All Shook Up," and definitely wanting to come back for more.
