Elvis Presley's voice, soul and presence would always cut through the deepest of scratched RCA records. This is what Danny Vernon found at a very early age when he began singing along with his Father's discarded albums unaware of Presley's vast impact in American culture. With a devout passion, Danny would sing and dance along with the King's music trusting that one day he would be recapturing his own "Illusion of Elvis" show on stage.
Danny's professional experiences have included being a singing server at a revolving restaurant, strumming guitar and singing acoustic folk/rock tunes in lounges and nightclubs, and recording an original country album in Nashville receiving national airplay. This broad backdrop of skillful versatility helps give stability and genuineness to his "Illusion of Elvis" show.
He enjoys performing all 3 decades of Elvis' career, including the "recklessly abandoned" hillbilly cat 50's, the sleek 60's movie years including the Comeback Special, and the sexy 70's jumpsuit years.
In his own words, "From the many years of admiration of Elvis, I've sought to create a show that would hold the excitement of the King on stage throughout various stages in his career. I also try to show respect and support the integrity of the man and his music."
With the voice, look, and passion of the twentieth century icon, Danny Vernon strives to re-capture Elvis Presley's appeal to an ever-growing audience. TOP
