ELVIS By Dano (a Li'l Johnny Cash) owns Gigmaster's Best of 2015, 2014 and 2012 awards for the Seattle Tacoma area. This award began in 2012 and is determined by his client review scores and the number of bookings. He is also one of their most entertaining and interactive singers. Yes indeed, Dan Peterson's nice voice, natural moves, plus the way he often sings close up and personal to the ladies in his audience, add up to a fun and authentic tribute to the one and only Elvis Presley.

The Angel Of The Winds Casino in Arlington, Washington is one of the many places where Dano has wowed the crowd on Jan 8th for the King's past birthdays. Yes, being a true Elvis Presley fan himself since the age of ten, he has loved singing along with The Great One most of his life. His first tribute to Elvis was back in May of 1994 at a church volunteer appreciation function, and in 1999 he sang his first full set of tunes to a very excited audience at the same hall. He was also a singer and guitarist for a rock and roll band around that same time period and often performed tribute sets to Elvis. The crowd always lit up when Dano took the stage during those shows. After an eight year stay, he left the band in late 2004 and went solo to become one of the most rockin' Elvis's around the Seattle Tacoma area and beyond, as well as a great ballad singer.

Dano can also perform a lively and moving set honoring another of his childhood favorites, the legendary Johnny Cash. The perfect warm up act for Elvis, Dano's typical Johnny tribute is around a half hour in length, or up to about 45 minutes if requested. Dano dresses in all black, of-course, and brings his old country guitar. When a continuous two legend show is in the works, everyone gets really excited when Johnny does an about face to the audience and starts to slip on either the famous gold lam'e jacket or an awesome cape that was created for him by a past client. For added effect, he also puts on the gold rimmed Elvis sunglasses as well. Johnny Cash actually transforms into Elvis Presley as the dramatic music plays. When he turns back around to face the audience as "The King of Rock and Roll", the crowd always cheers in delight. Clients also have the option of choosing any of his other Elvis outfits, with a clothes changing break in between.

Dano can pay tribute to the King of the 1950s in the flashy gold lam'e jacket outfit, the "GI Blues" army uniform, the late sixties star in the TV Comeback Special leather ensemble, or of-course, the forever popular white jumpsuit costume of the 1970s icon. Once again, as the country/rockabilly star Johnny Cash, Dano wears the traditional all black. So, if you want your next event "All Shook Up", and maybe "Walk The Line" a little too, then ELVIS By Dano (a Li'l Johnny Cash) is the one!

Everyone at the party had a great time!! Dano played the crowd and was very professional in every manner. He was prompt on arrival and was set up and ready to go before the guests arrived. He was very easy to work with and he looked and sounded like Elvis in every way! My guests stayed till the very end and wanted an encore, which he did do! I would highly recommend him for any event. Thanks again Dano, for making my wife's surprise birthday party a huge success!!

5 star from start to finish with booking Dano for our family reunion/surprise 80th birthday party. He really impressed us with his excellent communication during the planning process. He arrived early and was a total professional the entire time. The crowd went wild we he made his surprise grand entrance as ELVIS! Everyone was so impressed with his vocal skill and dance moves and I appreciated his special attention to my grandmother by making this a true once in a lifetime event. All of our party guests are still raving over his performance and I can't thank him enough for the memories out family will have for a lifetime. Book him, trust me. He will not disappoint.

Dano really went out of his way to perform the songs we requested. Not only did he do a great job of Elvis tunes, but he also had some great interactions with the audience. He made them feel they were really a part of the performance. To make a good thing even better, he took a break, changed into Johnny Cash type clothing and performed some of my husband's favorite Johnny Cash songs. Our guests loved his performances and so did we! We got much more than our money's worth from Dano!
