The Essence of Elvis

The Essence of ElvisRod has called his show ‘The Essence of Elvis’ as he does not want to be known as an Elvis Impersonator, rather as a singer/guitarist who pays tribute to Elvis Presley – one of the greatest performers of all time.

Rod is a seasoned musician with an exceptional voice, who has taken his act to many parts of Australia.

He has been performing Elvis songs since he was a mere 15 years old, and whilst living on the Gold Coast he performed his ‘Elvis’ show, as well as a selection of other favourite tunes from many different artists in several local venues.

Rod then moved to Moruya, on the south coast of NSW in 2000, where he collaborated with other local musicians before again going solo.

Rod went to the Parkes Elvis Festival in 2007 and upon receiving an awesome response from the crowd has not looked back.  He again appeared in Parkes and Forbes in 2009, 2011 and 2012 and 2013 (where he received standing ovations) and has been rebooked at the Parkes Services Club for 2014.

Rod was also well received in Tasmania in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 performing a string of sold out shows where the demand for encores seemed to go on forever. Rod will be returning to Tassie again in November 2013 and Feb/March 2014

The current ‘Essence of Elvis’ show includes all of the Elvis’s favourites from throughout his career, as well as songs from his movies, beautiful gospel numbers and a few that aren’t as well-known as Elvis songs that may surprise you.

The Essence of ElvisThe costumes are authentic replicas custom made in the USA and Rod’s light hearted manner on stage as well as his guitar work and those classic ‘Elvis moves’ makes for a great show, always enjoyed by old and new ‘Elvis’ fans alike.

Rod currently has 2 cd’s available which are popular sellers at shows, and he has plans for more very soon.

The Essence of Elvis is very versatile and can adapt his show to suit almost any venue, from a lounge bar in a club, to a full show in an auditorium.  He is also available for weddings, birthdays and corporate functions.
