Ben, from Berkshire, is a singer, songwriter, musician and actor (Autopsy: The Last Hours of Elvis 2014 & Elvis: Are You Lonesome Tonight 2020) and most notably an internationally renowned Elvis Tribute Artist. Ben had Elvis’s DNA in his blood from an early age. His father was an avid Elvis fan and Ben grew up on a diet of Elvis songs.
Having honed his musical talent Ben started his journey as an Elvis Tribute Artist in 2005 when he formed the Taking Care of Elvis Band. After winning many prestigious awards, it was in August 2012 when Ben made history, winning the Elvis Presley Enterprises ‘Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest’ in Memphis, crowning Ben as the “Worldwide Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist”, the first artist from outside the USA to ever win this prestigious title.
Celebrating the life of an iconic showman and telling the story of the King through the show, Ben and the band will take you on a trip down memory lane with barnstorming sets of many of Elvis’ most loved songs from all eras such as the 1950s, the iconic ’68 Comeback Special, and Ben’s personal favourite, the 1970s Vegas concerts.
As a versatile guitarist, Ben can seamlessly switch from rock ‘n’ roll, gospel, and soul and there promises to be plenty of fabulous costume changes and lots of interaction with the audience along the way!
With his looks, charm and charisma, Ben continues to amaze audiences with his stage presence, with fans claiming globally ‘this is the closest you will ever get to the King himself’.
