Ryan Pelton has won numerous awards performing as The King across the globe for audiences large and small. He is an international, award-winning Elvis Tribute Artist, actor and singer/songwriter; Pelton has performed in the world’s largest tribute show, Legends in Concert for nearly a decade, starred in the Hollywood film The Identical, and continues to record his own original music. There is no doubt that Pelton is the rarest kind of performer, living up to his billing time and time again. Ryan Pelton brings to life the passion, energy and sound of King in every performance.
Tony Rocker always listened to ‘50s and ‘60s music, even as a kid. He was influenced by artists such as Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, Conway Twitty, Barry White, Doris Day, Dion & the Belmonts and others. When it came to music, he liked everything with soul and feeling. Growing up, Tony remembers listening to Elvis singing “Kentucky Rain” and “In the Ghetto.” Says Tony, “I was a dreamer and would imagine myself on stage performing and thought, ‘If only I had the opportunity, I know I would sing with heart.’”
After playing drums for many years, the opportunity finally came to get out from behind the kit and perform an Elvis Tribute show. Says Tony, “When I put on my first jumpsuit, it felt right and there was an indescribable feeling of transformation. I went from watching Elvis to portraying and singing his songs on stage.”
Tony thanks his numerous fans and strives to give them 100% at all his shows. “I’ve made many friends and Elvis fans alike,” says Tony. “I’ve done shows and been to places I never would have dreamed of, if not for Elvis and all of you.”
