David Thibeault is a young lad from Quebec city, with a big voice....who is also a big Elvis fan. He surprised everyone on a Quebec city radio station, by singing Blue Christmas and sounding pretty much like the "King". LLM saw David last March, when he entered "Dans Les Souliers d'Elvis" competition at Montreal's Place Des Arts. That competition was won by Montreal's own Matt Nardi, who has appeared on the LLM stage several times. But even though David didn't win then, listening to him now obviously says there's a good chance he could in the near future. We wish David all the best and since it is so close to Christmas, take a look at this video and you will see why David is our video pick of the month!
Being a wearer of many hats in the music industry, I have had the good fortune of meeting so many fascinating people in the "Elvis" world.
As the host of Lady Luck Music's Elvis Tribute Artist Radio , I had the opportunity to present hundreds of vocalists to listeners, and also conducted many interviews.
One such thrilling experience, was taking part in Ryan Wood’s Elvis Expo 2004, in Las Vegas. I met up with friends who have since passed on, like Charlie Hodge and Myrna Smith...I found the story and I'm sure you will enjoy the pictorial, just click this link: www.ladyluckmusic.com/special/elvisexpo-jo
Great memories. Among the E-celebs, were up and coming tribute artists, with a few who were living and working in Vegas at the time. Wow, they were talented characters, who enjoyed entertaining the audience and off stage? Wow again! It seemed they were always happy!
Nine years has passed since E.P.Expo, and one of those energetic characters (whom you'll see a pic of in the story) found himself in Memphis during Elvis week. His years of stage experience, complimented by his very original style of entertaining, won him the "Ultimate Elvis 2013" title. This Elvis Tribute Artist is an accomplished musician, an actor, and does it all with an original flair, which is a hard task to do.
I had the privilege of featuring him on Elvis Tribute Artist Radio back in 2000 and have followed his career since then. Friends, take a look at the winning song and performance of Mr Dean Z.
In this video, Dean exudes professionalism and dynamic energy and natural talent. This is my video pick! Joanna Johnson/ LLM
