I have to admit I did go to see a couple of Impersonators over the years. I just wanted to get a feel of what it was like to see Elvis. BIG MISTAKE! I left both times very disappointed because I realized , what I already knew, no one will ever be like him! I was so mad when I saw women screaming at this man and saying "OMG. he is just like him". I just wanted to scream back and say "You have no idea what the REAL Elvis is like!" I said after that I would never go see another one!
If I heard someone say that to me while performing, I would probley look back at my mother-in-law or my wife who ever was doing the scarfs that night and say on mic. "She know's I'm Not Elvis right? "
Love to all,
Ok, I know this is dangerous adding this video to this particular thread, but I thought it would be fun to see the reaction! There are some crazy Elvis impersonators out there that think they're Elvis or have some kind of deranged ideas, but I promise you I'm NOT one of those guys. I know I'm not Elvis. I'm a fan who was frustrated in seeing sloppy, disrespectful portrayls of our hero! So, I decided to put together a show here locally and we perform it 4 to 5 times a year. It's more fun than anything, but I consider it to be a real tribute to the man who is my musical hero!
My youtube channel is www.youtube.com/nathanaselvis if you'd like to see more. I also perform my original material as well as other artists.

Beautiful voice Nathan, you and Tim do a great tribute to Elvis and show people that not all tribute artists are not out for themselves. It's obvious how both of you love Elvis and portrait him with grace and respect.
The truth that we are in a world that everything it moves the money,these imitators do what is for one extracts dollars,I believe that in ocasions not him respect.
Nathan, your voice is wonderful! You are very talented!
I dont like them at all
Pain doesnīt hurt when itīs all you ever feelt !!!
...ummm...there okay i guess some go too far but there were some good ones like Johnny harra pretty good. ..its fun no harm done..best one right now is shawn klushhes the ultimate elvis impersonator on the planet
I don't like elvis impersonators at all they make elvis look like a joke. They all sound the same in that bad deep voice that they do which Elvis never talked in that deep voice that imps do. However when someone does a tribute song like Bill medleys old friend I like that because they are paying tribute in their own voice or when someone does a cover a Elvis song like when Travis Tritt did TROUBLE was great because alot of people got to hear a song that was basically unknown to the general public.

Mr. N Belt is one of the best in the business and has class too! And very humble like Elvis was.
