"Melvis" performed at a karaoke Christmas party as Elvis in December, 2000. Something happened that night while wearing the studded jumpsuit. Melvis has been dazzling audiences ever since that time. The love Melvis has for Elvis's music comes theach and every performance. Although no one can sound exactly like Elvis, Melvis has an uncanny similar sound. His moves also closely mimic those of "The King."
Melvis has stunned hundreds of audiences with his tribute to Elvis over the past decade. He has performed at such venues as Benihana, the Firehouse Restaurant, and the 'Blast from the Past' at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire; Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas; Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Arizona; and most recently at Pawley's Pub, CB's Beach Club, The Whale, Pawleys Island Tavern, Island Bar, and Hog Heaven in coastal South Carolina.
In addition, Melvis has performed at numerous private functions such as anniversaries, birthday parties, and class reunions. He has also performed alongside such acts as Fabmania, a Beatles tribute group; Hot Rocks, a nationally known Rolling Stones tribute group; and Eric Burdon and the New Animals. Melvis strives to provide the best Elvis show possible at a reasonable cost.
The goal of Melvis's performance in any given show is to take the audience on a nostalgic trip to relive Elvis's first rockabilly hits of the 50's, the songs of his movies, the high energy of his "Comeback Special" from 1968, or the excitement of his 70's Vegas shows. Melvis utilizes pre-recorded instrumental tracks of Elvis's music. Most songs are live versions, which give the show a great feel. During the shows, Melvis plays guitar; croons to the audience; and in true Elvis fashion pays special attention to the ladies, the luckiest of whom receive on of his silk scarves.
