Mark Andrew

Mark Andrew Tabone was born in Melbourne in 1966 and spent most of his childhood in Europe. It was there his interest in performing arts developed from an early age, acting, singing and playing character roles to large audiences. On his return to Australia in 1983, he appeared on the nine networks talent show “New Faces” which opened a lot of doors. In 1992 he formed a Rock n’ Roll band “Blue Suede Dudes”, playing many Melbourne venues and also supporting Chubby Checker on his Australian Tour. In 1995 he featured as Buddy Holly in a Legends Revival Concert at Dallas Brooks Hall. He then created his own corporate “Dead- Set Legends” show performing as Buddy Holly, John Lennon, Jim Morrison and Elvis. “Elvis Leaves His Mark” was launched in 1998 and is now one of the best Tribute shows worldwide with Mark finishing in the top 5 in the world in Memphis in 2002. In Recent times Mark was invited to perform his Elvis Tribute for Joe Esposito, Elvis’ own Road manager and best Man at his wedding, Joe’s comments were “Mark You did an absolute fantastic tribute to Elvis and it brought back so many memories, You sang from the heart just like Elvis did” Mark, a trained actor has an incredible versatile talent to capture each character and later added Austin Powers, Dean Martin & Tom Jones to his Legend show and also makes a true to life Danny Zuco, performing in his own Grease Tribute show. In recent years, Mark has been invited 4 years in a row to headline “The Parkes Elvis Festival” performing various versions of his “Elvis Leaves His Mark” show, with this year having sold out 4 consecutive shows with standing ovations.

Damian Mullin

Damian is from Melbourne and combines his tribute to Elvis Presley with a wicked and witty sense of humour that engages the audience from start to finish. His ability to not only laugh at himself but also have fun with the audience is what makes Damian a popular act. He prefers to stay away from competitions these days after winning the UETA Contest 2012 in Surfers Paradise. “One competition was enough for me, I don’t want to be famous and I don’t take it too seriously and at the end of the day I’m just a father of two children and a married man who likes to sing. I just want to have fun with it and so far I’ve made a living out of it for and I think not taking it too seriously has helped a lot.”

Dean Vegas

Dean is a renowned entertainer who has toured the world performing in Dubai, China, Ecuador, Bali, Sweden, Indonesia, Lebanon, Canada, Memphis, London, Las Vegas, New Zealand, Norfolk Island and in clubs and Casinos across Australia. He sang his first rendition of an Elvis song at his school play ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ he sang ‘Rubberneckin’ which he has since added to his repertoire of Elvis songs. Dean travels the world wowing audiences with his ‘Tribute to Elvis’ spectacular. Throughout this energised Vegas style show, audiences not only share the hits from Elvis’ amazing career, but experience the passion and warming personality of a truly great performer.
