Are you a Tribute Artist or a fan of Tributes Artists?
My name is Will Reynolds and Elvis is someone I have always admired because of the beat of his music and his ability to play guitar, piano and sing in many ranges low and high. I am (15) fifteen years old and have discovered I have an ability to do some things Elvis did like no one else can do. I have appeared at the Memories Theatre and Smith Family Theatre in Pigeon Forge, TN. I have also performed at Thoroughbred Theater in Midway, KY and many other places as well as a Terrace in Berea and Cardinal Hill in Lexington. I am scheduled to appear at numerous places later this year and in 2008. I am very proud to do a tribute to a man I admire and that did so much for music. Being only (15) fifteen, I anticipate keeping the unique style of Elvis' music alive. The most enjoyable event I performed at was the Elvis contest in Harrodsburg Kentucky against (18) other Elvis Tribute Artists, because of my age i did not qualify to go to Graceland for the Ultimate Elvis Contest. I also competed in the Viva Las Franklin with the Jordanares as my backup vocals. I learned a lot in both contests and most of the other contestants were very helpful in my career of being an ETA. I hope you all get to see me sometime in the near future.
Welcome to tributes radio ...there are alot of awesome ETA' s on here. We weren't able to see you in Frankfort..but heard you were awesome. I've listened to some of your songs and I will agree
Hello FRiend,, I too, was in your shoes and know exactly your feelings of playing the Kings music,, when I was 13,, most of the songs were pretty hard to do,,, but I kept singing , and people kept laughing, and I kept getting more and more jobs in the 50's style resturarants, I started winning contests,, and one day when I was 17, all of a sudden I could sing songs that were impossible to do , even at 16.. my voice changed,, Many musicians in the bands pushed me out of the way,, But guess what? the resturant owners suddenly started demanded that I do most of the show,,
You have to go through some tough times ahead, but ,, one day you will get a show where you will know,,,, every bit of the hard work was worth 5 minutes of that special show,, your confidence will go to the top,, and you will know that you will be an "ELVIS" tribute like no other,, not a snowflake,, but an avalanche.. You have everything you need,, to be the best,, with some work.. it is a beautiful life of excitement , and very prideful..
I can't ask for FRiendship, because of my numbers, but if you ask me,, I will be youir real FRiend,, and help you any way I can.. you are a generation away from me,, and you will have less competetion than is here today , our Tributes are getting weeded out now by quality,, Your quality will mushroom ,, because you are young ,and are able to form a natural "ELVIS" voice..
Good Luck MY young FRiend ,, Keep the "E" tradition going...
Your FRiend Always Lee
