US Elvis tribute artist Dean Z has been announced as the 2020 Feature Artist for the 28th annual Parkes Elvis Festival.
Hailing from Lancaster, California, Dean has dedicated his entire life to honouring the legacy of Elvis Presley.
The first song I sang on stage was Jailhouse Rock. Every time I shook the audience would scream, and I’ve been shaking ever since.
Dean became an accomplished musician during his youth and took off for Las Vegas, at 17. He has performed in Japan, Norway, Denmark, England, Canada and Australia!
Dean was named the 2013 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist in Memphis in a contest sanctioned by Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. He is now serves as an ambassador to Graceland and the Elvis Presley estate.
Dean says he never forgets about the music, the legacy, or the man he is paying tribute to.
Making people happy when I’m on stage is so fulfilling, and it’s all because of Elvis. He stands the test of time, and as long as the world wants to hear his music, I’ll be ready to sing it.
Dean Z will perform at Parkes Elvis Festival backed by an impressive Elvis band. He will recreate the performances that made Elvis Presley the one and only King of Rock’n’Roll. Further details will be made available in September 2019.
