In the last 20 years or so a major part of my career has seen me journey into the music world of Elvis Presley.
Throughout this time i have performed in Las Vegas at The Stardust Casino in an Elvis production and shared the stage with the legendary "Jordenaires" the male backing singers for Elvis who were on most of the recordings up to around 1966.
I have also done three seperate Australian national tours with The TCB band featuring, James Burton (guitar) Glen D Hardin (keys) Jerry Scheff (bass) Ronnie Tutt (drums). I played percussion for the first tour along side Ronnie ..... a great honour !
The next two consecutive tours i was asked to play drums for The TCB band as Ronnie was away touring with Neil Diamond. ( Ronnie has been Neil Diamond's drummer since 1981)
I have also had the pleasure of working along side Myrna Smith, singer of The Sweet Inspirations here in Australia with The TCB band as well as in Hong Kong supporting The Rolling Stones.
From there on i have worked with numerous Elvis tribute artists from overseas as well as here in Australia. Some of these include,
Max Pellicano (Elvis to the Max) USA
