Embodying "The King of Rock and Roll," Brandon Bennett returns to the Suncoast Showroom for one night only – tonight, July 28 – in "Elvis My Way."
The show takes the audience on a journey through Elvis's career, starting with "The King's" introduction to the entertainment world in the 50s, the famous 1968 television appearance that marked Elvis's return to live performances and the concert years – symbolized by the powerful vocals, high energy stage performances and the legendary jumpsuits.
Bennett has received numerous accolades for his impersonation of Elvis Presley. In 2008, he won the "Ultimate Elvis Tribute Contest" and went on to win the title of the "Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist" at Graceland. He is the 2002 International Images of the King World Champion, making him the youngest contestant ever to place and win the competition.
As a world-renowned and much sought-after Elvis illusionist, Bennett appeared in the re-enactment of the "50th Anniversary of Elvis Return Home as a Star in 1956" at the Tupelo Festival in 2006. With his tribute show and his band, "The Heart Break Orchestra," Bennett performs in venues throughout the country, dazzling fans with his spot-on impersonation. He has also opened for legendary performers such as Diamond Rio, Ronnie Milsap and Chuck Berry.
Currently, Bennett is starring as Elvis in the Chicago-based cast of "Million Dollar Quartet" – a musical inspired by the 1956 recording session that brought together Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins.
