ELVIS: MY WAY stars the electrifying Brandon Bennett, who most recently appeared in Chicago's "Million Dollar Quartet." Bennett sets the stage ablaze in a spine-tingling tribute to the King himself Elvis Presley. With his pure-bred Southern charm, powerful voice, and scandalous moves, Bennett was named the "Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist" by Elvis Presley Enterprises at Graceland. His must-see show traverses Elvis' career from the Rock n' Roll nativity of the '50s-to the iconic comeback television concert of the 60s-to the legendary jumpsuits of the '70s. All-time greatest hits include "Blue Suede Shoes," "Can't Help Falling in Love," "Suspicious Minds," and many more.
Previously, Brandon Bennett starred in the Montreal Company of "The Elvis Story." Bennett also headlines his powerful act in festivals, cruises, commercials and casinos around the world. A native son of Ponchatoula, Louisiana, Bennett's Southern roots, God-given talent, and natural resemblance to The King of Rock 'n Roll allow him to uniquely evoke the unmistakable essence of Elvis' charm onstage. He has been honored to sing alongside music legends such as The Jordanaires, DJ Fontana, and The Sweet Inspirations, as well as open for Diamond Rio, Ronnie Millsap and Chuck Berry. Bennett's uncanny performances have earned numerous accolades, including the prestigious "Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist." For more information, visit www.brandonbennettlive.com.
