In the early 90’s Michael began to do more Elvis tribute
shows throughout the Southeast and buying every Elvis
song he could find to hone the vocal style and sound. It
was very important that he be able to properly honor the
music and great vocal ability that was the signature of
every Elvis song. By study of the music Michael became a
really huge fan of the music and the man that made it.
During this time Michael learned about the Images of
Elvis work in Memphis and was a finalist every year that
he attended. Michael travels with his group Memphis that
includes three great female vocalists as well as one of
the lowest bass singers that was a personal friend of
the late great J.D. Sumner. The shows of course include
the great music of Elvis in tribute as well as early
rock and roll, early and new country and other great
music. Michael puts great energy into every show and makes that
evident to all who have attended. He never tires of
singing the same great songs over and over and truly
treats every show as the first and last putting every
bit of himself into each performance. His connection to
his audience keeps the dreams and music alive. As has often been pointed out by Michael he does not
consider himself an impersonator but a tribute artist.
In Michael’s mind it is a big difference as he considers
Elvis truly one of a kind!!! God Bless!!!
