Description

Don’t miss the chance to see Elvis on Tour – The Kings & The Killer: A Tribute to Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis. Join Leo Days, Doug Church and Lance Lipinsky as they pay tribute to two of the greatest music legends in the world!

Leo Days is one of today’s most sought after Elvis Tribute artists. He was a Top 5 finalist in the 2009 Elvis Presley Enterprises “Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest” and the 1998 Champion of the Collingwood Elvis Festival Contest. He presents one of the top Elvis tributes in Las Vegas, and tours constantly throughout America and Europe. He’s particularly renowned for his accurate portrayal of Elvis in all the diverse phases of his career. Born in Honolulu and raised in Michigan, he became an avid Elvis fan at the age of three, and grew up listening to Elvis and watching his movies. At 15, he entered a talent contest where he took first place, and subsequently started studying everything he could about Elvis—especially his moves and mannerisms; his career quickly took off. Leo has had the opportunity to thrill audiences over the past 12 years in casinos, theaters, corporate events, festivals, and cruise ships. He often tours overseas—he had a month-long residency in Paris—and has performed in Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, Holland, Germany, and beyond.

Doug Church began his Elvis career in the U.S. Air Force in 1983 while competing against hundreds of other contestants and winning annual talent shows defeating the best entertainers from many bases in the European and U.S. Air Force commands. In four years, he collected 11 first place trophies for his well-developed likeness to Elvis, as well as other categories including best male vocalist. In 1990, he took home the second place prize in the fourth annual Worldwide Elvis Impersonator Contest in Memphis against Elvis entertainers from all over the world— his first time in this competition. The following year, Doug returned to Memphis to capture the first place crown as “The World’s Best Elvis Impersonator.” In 1993, after a successful audition with the hit Vegas show “Legends In Concert,” he started touring the country and the world, performing in such exotic locations as Bangkok, Hong Kong, Aruba, The Bahamas, Moscow, and Denmark. In 1999, Doug starred in and performed soundtrack vocals for the award winning documentary film, “Almost Elvis.” It may be hard to imagine how anyone could possibly duplicate 70 different voice personalities with perfection, but Doug Church can! He has awed his audiences for over 20 years, leaving them totally mesmerized and shaken—by one of those voices in particular—that of Elvis Presley.

Lance Lipinsky takes on one of the wilder entertainers out there in his acclaimed tribute to piano rock pioneer, Jerry Lee Lewis. It’s a fact that there are not many Lewis impersonators out there. It’s not because he wasn’t popular – It’s because you gotta play the piano. And, boy, does Lipinsky play the piano, all while demonstrating to audiences just what it was about Lewis that made him a legitimate threat to the crown worn by Elvis in 1957. Lance is a native of Texas growing up an hour from Austin, the live music capitol of the world. He learned his first song on guitar at age 11, “Heartbreak Hotel.” Influenced by Buddy Holly and the surf group, The Ventures, by 15 he was already a gifted guitarist and was inspired to learn piano as a fan of the classic rock band, The Doors. A self-taught musician, he discovered Lewis, and piano eventually became his main instrument. A fateful move to Vegas at the age of 17 led Lance to become one of the world’s top internationally renowned Jerry Lee Lewis tribute acts. Lance met “The Killer” in 2003, and has been paying tribute to him ever since with high energy piano playing, dead-on vocals, and fantastic showmanship. Among his numerous show credentials, was the critically-acclaimed hit Chicago theatrical production, “Million Dollar Quartet—The Musical,”—recently staged in Chicago—in which Lance starred as… you guessed it, Jerry Lee Lewis.
