SOME BACKGROUND INFO!
I'm extremely excited about all of the projects I'm currently working on. Some are more time consuming than others, such as the Elvis Tribute which really keeps me hopping. I really enjoy the concept of portraying a variety of "characters" on stage and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to have such variety in my career. So,I thought I'd give you a little background which might explain how I arrived at this point.
I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio loving the music of the Las Vegas Entertainers such as Elvis, Dean Martin, Tom Jones and Wayne Newton. During these early years, I listened faithfully to the music of Elvis in particular. The love of his music and style ultimately led me into the entertainment field.
After graduating from college I began a career as a teacher but ultimately the desire to entertain manifested itself. I took my first serious singing job performing an Elvis Tribute and traveling the United States with Myron & The Marvells. Of course, there never seems to be a limit to the popularity of Elvis, and to this day I still continue to enjoy perfoming my Tribute to appreciative audiences.
After teaching for five years, was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to make music my full time career. I left teaching behind and focused my energy into putting together an oldies show, known as the Del Satins. Through the years, the personnel that comprised this group changed, and the most recent reincarnation of the oldies group was known as the Blast From The Past.
A change in direction in 2002 led me my down a slightly different path. Time and time again, I would hear from fans that I reminded them of Wayne Newton, both visually and in my performance style. I've always been a huge fan of Mr. Newton and as the saying goes - imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. Fans have been extremely receptive to my portrayal of the Midnight Idol and it is one of the most rewarding aspects of my career.
Occasionally, I get a call from someone who "wants it all," and I'm always happy to put it all together and perform a variety show - Oldies, Country & Las Vegas Legends.
It may sound like I have a lot on my plate, but I really like it that way. I have the greatest job in the world. I feel as if all the experiences I have had along the way have led me to this place in my career. I now have the opportunity to express my muscial style to some of the greatest fans anyone could wish for.
