Brandon Bennett has been recognized by Elvis Presley Enterprises (the Guardians of Graceland) as “the ultimate Elvis Tribute artist”. His retrospective of Presley’s career includes Elvis’ many modes, including his rock debut in the 1950s, his comeback in the 60s and his Vegas phase in the 70s.
Bennett performed with the Chicago company of the Million Dollar Quartet, appearing as — you guessed it — Elvis, and even appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman to perform the Presley classic “Hound Dog.”
Bennett will be backed by Josh Skaja on guitar, Jason Ellis on bass, Chuck Larkin on piano and Vance Okraszewski on drums. He will also be joined by backing vocalists Lara Filip and Rachel Swindler.
Expect to hear hits like ‘Blue Suede Shoes’, ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’, ‘Suspicious Minds’ and more.
“It was about the music, his voice, and most importantly he was REAL,” Bennett said in a press release, noting the hold Presley continues to have on music fans to this day.
