Travis LeDoyt to Play Louis B. Mayer Theatre, 10/11
Travis LeDoyt, who has been called "the World's Best Young Elvis," will be appearing Friday, October 11 at the Louis B. Mayer Theatre on the Santa Clara University campus as part of SCU PRESENTS Visiting Artist Series. Tickets, at prices ranging from $20 to $48, can be purchased on-line at www.scurpresents.org
LeDoyt has been selling out shows and receiving accolades from audiences from all across the United States and recently returned from China and the UK where he received an overwhelming response. He was a hit at Busch Gardens in Tampa where he performed for nearly 100,000 people over a 6 week period.
In addition to his recent performances overseas, LeDoyt has been experiencing great success over the past year with capacity crowds in Las Vegas and Reno Nevada, Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas,
Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Wisconsin. He has also performed in Chile and Canada.
To those people who think they have seen it all when it comes to Elvis tribute acts, this is the one that makes them do a double-take. There is simply no way to describe LeDoyt and his performance except unbelievable.
LeDoyt, who is based in Nashville, flawlessly captures the essence of Elvis in his prime, and restricts his shows to the hits and ambience of 1954-1960. Utilizing an authentic three-piece Nashville band featuring bass, guitar, and drums, LeDoyt takes his audience back to a genuine 1950's concert. For those who missed an Elvis concert during those years, it is a chance to relive that exciting era.
